Ok....so technically not a new guitar day because I traded my Marc Bolan LP to a forum member in the summer time for this beauty of a R9. I was hesitant because the Bolan was very nice but the neck wasn’t as thick as I like and you all know how it goes...anyways... This R9 was then then sent to Gord Millers Vintage Guitar Restoration in BC to get it accurately aged to look like a well played but not abused original burst. The wait time was approximately 3 months and he added Montreux knobs. I think the finish product looks great, legitimately old. All pictures taken with my iPhone and no filter. Hard to get all the details but I hope you get the picture. If you are a member of guitarscanada you may have seen me post this but just wanted to show this forum the finish product. Also, if your not into aged guitars let it slide as I don’t want this to become a debate. Thanks.
