So I sent my Yamano R9 out for a full deluxe makeover package. It came buck a week ago but this has been my first chance to post. The guitar was great before it was made over but I have wanted to change the color, neck shape and top carve for some time. I also asked Kim for the darkest strait grain Brazillian board he could find. I also bit the bullet and went with the correct Gibson logo. The guitar now weighs 7 lb 14 oz(was 8 lb 2 oz before) and the neck is .869 at the 1st fret and .961 at the 12th fret.
