i'm not a professional musician and honestly I don't really hear any differences.
It is often a never-ending debate between everyone's feelings (the magnetic disturbance of the strings, the acoustic response of the wood, etc.).
The rosewood of the 2017 is indeed clearer than on the other two...
Nothing to complain about the finish ... everything is "ok".
The "V3" suits me better than the one of the R8 and R9
I had seen some nice" flamed tops"
In the UK I have looked but the prices are still high.
And the financial negotiations are really very difficult for small discounts.
I have just received my R0 60Th bought in an Italian shop (Centro Citarre).
It's the V3 version ...(because of the size of my hands...)
It weighs 8,8 lbs.
A marvel !!!!
