    Great guitar, I really like it. The only issue I have is the nut slots are cut to high. I will be adjusting those tomorrow. After that it will be prefect.
    I love the color on this one. It's has a nice weight 8lbs 6oz.

    That's a nice one. I don't usually like PTs... but liking the darker burst on this.

    Thanks, it has a beefier neck than my 59 TH but it's not as full as pre 2012 versions. Like a 59 neck with more shoulder.

    Sounds about the same as my '13 R8 that's .887" 1st fret and 1.05 12th.....the squarer shoulders makes all the difference.
    Mine's good up the neck at frets 9-12 but I would have liked a little more depth to it below the 9th.

    It looks nearly identical to my '14 R8, except the reds on yours are a bit more subdued. So, of course I love yours! I like it much better than a flamey guitar. It's really sweet. And I'll bet it looks better in person.

    Here's mine for comparison.

    Mine measures .91 at the first and 1.01 at the 12th. Very comfortable neck.
