Regrettably selling my 2018 R8 Les Paul in Royal Teaburst. $SOLD (PayPal Friends & Family unless you'd prefer to pay the fees). Feel free to PM me here on MLP if interested or email me at [email protected].

I bought this R8 new from Wildwood 4 years ago (8/03/2018). It was one that Greg Koch demo'd (video of him playing it below). In short, it's a bloody brilliant Les Paul and I hate to sell it, but I've gotten in over my head a bit with guitars lately (just bought a new 2022 LPC 57 RI, so something's gotta give). No disappointments with this one... its an absolute beauty with a very cool, eclectic top with a killer burst job, and a super dark fretboard (see pics).

Has the original Custombuckers, but I upgraded the electronics by installing a ThroBak wiring harness with real Bumblebee caps. If you know anything about ThroBak, you know their stuff is top tier (and their prices reflect that!). Everything else is stock and works great. Sounds killer (watch the video).

In excellent shape. Has a few very minor indentations on the back from playing and one tiny one on the front by the horn (see pics).
  • Weight: 8.82lbs
  • Neck measures:
    • 1st Fret: 0.888"
    • 7th Fret: 0.963"
    • 12th Fret: 1.003"
    • Has what I'd call medium shoulders, nothing crazy, just enough to notice them... a very cozy neck, IMO
  • Frets are in great shape
  • Holds tune extremely well (most stable guitar I've ever owned tuning-wise)
Comes the OHSC, COA, and CS medallion (and some other case candy).

Here's Greg Kock demo'ing it back in 2018 at the Wildwood Lair (the video camera makes it look much redder than it is in real life).

And here's pics of her today. Apologies for the fact that the forum attachment manager wants to rotate all my pics sideways.

Congrats on the sale. That one sure has a beautiful top with some lovely grain and patterning for an R8
