Sorry, gonna have to disagree about it being a 2013, that's a 2003.
It has a wired abr-1 - nut is corian - inlays are acrylic - tuners are green button 2003 style - ground bus wire is thinner than 2013.

I almost preordered ones of these from Sweetwater back in May, but once they told me the ship date probably wouldn't be until September or October I decided to pass. Now I'm seconding guessing that decision, thanks. :hmm:
To my eye it doesn't look like as sharp as some 58's I've seen, but it's not as rounded as the later 59's.
Out of curiosity have you checked the pot codes to see if they are dated '58 or '59? Might help to determine a rough build date.
Did I hear someone requesting P90's with more bling? (No affiliation with KC vintage)
Another thing you could possibly try, plug the jack hole with a temporary dowel, and then carefully put a few drops of acetone around the outside of the washer.
If it's epoxy the acetone should soften it enough to safety remove the washer.
Realistic prices on R8's can range from $2300 to over 5k (if buying new)
As far as a list of things that can affect pricing... That's a long list.
Everything from flame top vs plain top, custombuckers vs burstbuckers, potted vs unpotted, nylon vs corian, hide glue vs titebond, TH spec vs...
