    Went and tried this R7 yesterday. Guy had it advertised as a 2007 when in fact it turned out to be a 2010. When I first saw it in person the first things I noticed was it looked like the strings had not been changed in years. Maybe the original strings! The guitar was filthy and smudgy. I also was not happy that it did not have case candy or a COA. However when I picked it up and played it both plugged and unplugged that is all she wrote. Even with a poor set up and old strings it rang and sang. The resonance, sustain and tone was fantastic! The neck was fantastic! Pretty much mint condition too as far as scratches, dings or marks. Weighed it and it was 8.5 lbs! This R7 needed to go home with me! I did some negotiating and we settled 300.00 below his asking price. Got it home. Cleaned, restrung and set it up and it is awesome! Could not be happier. Fantastic example and it will be a nice addition to my R0. Sorry for the not so great pics.
