    Hi,
    So i'm temporarily expanding/altering my long running search criteria in the hopes of greater success! I'm now open to the following:

    - R9s with vintage looking tops.
    - R8 flametops or plaintops with some kind of grain going on.
    - 1959 replicas from private luthiers.

    My colour preference is still iced tea but I might consider tobacco bursts aswell. I am able to offer up to $4000 for the right guitar (top, colour, model and condition dependant).

    For a guide of what i'm after i've again included a pic of my perfect top.
    Please feel free to let me know what you've got. The worst I could do is wish you luck with the sale!
    All the best,
    - Jonny.

    I've got an R8 in tobacco burst on the forum. Search for threads started by me under my username and you'll see it.

    hey Johnny sending an email right now. Sorry for the delay.

    After grabbing the guitar it's actually NOT a reissue. It's a Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop Desertburst with VOS parts. I'm sending you pic/price just let me know if I can help
