There's a nice '07 CR8 on reverb now for $3300.
That's about what non dealer asking price is for a similar year R8.
'07 R9s from private sellers are in the 4k range + or - a few Benjamin's.
This guitar should've been in that range to begin with.
And there's absolutely no excuse for any...
There are standard spec CR '54 Customs in both black and cherry red too. But if'n I remember correctly it was only a few dealers involved in ordering these CR runs. I think there's like ~5 CR4 Customs from each dealer and some of those were red and green while others were triple pup versions...
It's a 2017 R7 but wasn't completed til 2018.
Dan Nichols had it built as a M2M.
He chose a lightweight body blank to chamber, a one-piece top, one-off Heather Brown finish and the Braz board.
Other than those features it's regular R7/CR7 spec.
...edit... It also came from Gibson w/RS...
