I had and still have a 2010 R0 plaintop. Thought it was everything I could possibly want in tone and playability. Then last week I bought a used 2010 R7. Love the neck and it does't seem as big as another R7 I played a couple of years ago. Its 8.5 lbs vs the 9.6 lbs of my R0 is very much welcomed. I had always thought my R0 resonance, sustain and tone was to die for! That is until my newly acquired R7. It sounds and plays so much better! Now when I play the R0 the neck doesn't feel great anymore and the tone seems lacking compared to the R7. Maybe I am still just on a honeymoon with the R7 but if things do not change my R0 may end up spending a lot of time in the case. Oh well I could always use an ES335. We shall see.
