    2017 “Fossilized Flame” Roc Top. 8 pounds even.
    Reminds me of a Joe Perry Boneyard on steroids. Killer guitar. Thanks, Curt…

    And people laughed at this when it came out. No longer, hopefully.

    Nice guitar but I would've liked to have seen that caliber of flame on a more traditional burst color/pattern.

    do these have the TH appointments? what's different than the 2015 TH series? I thought most R9 TH had a light weight mahogany back and hard rock maple top

    No disrespect - taste is personal - but really not for me. It's a dye effect, I think, with noticeable bands of presence and absence (eg. below the tailpiece) and overall, just too... much.

    When you have 306 Les Pauls, like Top Gun has, one with a different top is a nice change from the norm. :laugh2:

    Congrats, Top Gun. I have always admired your past acquisitions but this one is not to my taste. No disrespect meant; it looks like an escapee from Gibson USA sneaked its way into the Gibson Custom Shop.

    It is just me though. Love the 8-pound weight!
