medium at the very most.

they will naturally age much nicer as time goes by.
This.

Both of mine I asked for the lightly aged look and they are aging further on their own just fine, but then again, I play mine out and often.

The next one I may have them go a bit further. Stay tuned. ;);)

Outstanding!

Yours is a few steps ahead of mine, competing for Team time and attention (HM thread pending).

The ebony standard I have (people call it a blackburst, but there is no flame under the paint) was not aged.

@OP - If you are going to have the paint faded, I would go with aging that would be consistent with the paint. Keep in mind that not all of the originals have weather checking...

That's going to turn out great. If I do another, I'd go with dirty lemon.

I went with medium aging and so glad that I did. Mine is just awesome. You are going to love it.

Is it pathetic that I check the build status of a guitar that isn't mine every day? I can't wait to see the completed photos of this one.

Beautiful!
Exactly the type of colour and aging I'd like to do on my R8.
