    Another one of those 'plain top' R8s... :applause:

    That's a real looker. Tobaccos are probably the least common bursts and IMHO some of best looking. Enjoy! :cheers:

    I think they accomplished more on the new Liftons, I have 4 guitars in the 2016 case and agree it isn't quite what they should be like they are now. But …. I'm not complaining. The guitars are GORJESUS.

    It's my number one .... yes even more so than the 59. I swear, you will fall in love with that guitar you got. I'm very convinced if I get another Historic it will be either a 57 gold top or another 58 R8 if I like the thing that's for sale.

    Finding the black 54 Robbie Krieger @PierM got would be nice too.

    Well to be honest, while in the shop I looked at the other guitars from 2018 and the case, at least from outside, was identical.
    I don't have a lot of problems with the padding since I'm not moving my guitars from home, but the fact that the case cannot stand vertically really pisses me off.

    Well to be honest my other guitar is an ebony 335, and I still prefer it slightly over the R8. To be fair though the 335 has lots of mods, and I didn't spend enough time with the R8 yet to properly bond with it!
