Kim got me last year at Arlington when he put a HM guitar in my hands. The feel of the neck and lacquer!
Did my R8 improve in sound after the makeover? Oh yeah, but it is subjective as the pickups and caps were changed as well.
It sounds (and feels!) brighter unplugged, though.
The main difference to a Historic (and I have owned and played plenty) is the feel of the neck. The bevels on the edge of the fretboard binding, the hard (not sticky) lacquer, and the reshaped profile of the neck feel like a well worn glove.
I think the guitar makes me play (and sound) better.
Exactly. This. Right here.
