Did some trading with a friend of mine for this 2013 R9. Nice but fairly subtle top, nice back, typical weight for a CS (8.8ish).

I almost didn't grab it as I wanted more of a top, but that all changed when I hit the open strings and it jumped to life. Man what a resonant guitar, literally hit a few chords and was convinced. Things only got better when plugged in, fantastic pickups (Custom Buckers I presume) really love the sound. Really sweet, warm, open sounding.

Anyhow, a few quick picks, nothing crazy just a nice subtle top.

I don't find that to be a subtle looking to at all. I think it is just perfect! Beautiful AND a great player? I think you hit the jackpot!!

Some tops are over the top. That one is perfect in my book !!!! Nice snag !!
This! ^

Very convincing vintage vibe to that top. The ones that are just too obvious leave name flat. I like them subtle with peek-a-boo flame that jumps out at different angles.

Congrats and HNGD!
