It's a full gloss ice tea, also with a walnut back; LPR4ITWBNHI It also has light figuring on the back and neck that would be easier to notice in low light if it were a light back. But it's getting easier to see on the back of the neck where the finish is wearing lighter. I had noticed in the Vintage Gutar Price Guide last year there was an entry for R4's that included a special model; 2007 R4, limited, 1/4 sawn, fleck, valued slightly higher than the normal models Did some research and presumed the 1/4 saw and so called ray fleck figuring was all about the hog and not the maple. Tried to find out more official word about it from VG and Gibson about how to ID those models but could not. But that made me start looking closer at all of the R4 back woods timber and started to find some that had it, finally lo and behold I noticed mine has it too.
