I hope I'm ok posting a camera phone pic of my own?
Not a completely fair fight, but they are both great guitars. If the R9 had the RDS like the R8 it would be really close, but R8 is the winner. I've owned my fair share of lefty Historics but these are the two best I've handled. I tell people that the HM RDS R8 is the best guitar I've ever owned & the R9 is the best 'straight from Gibson' guitar I've owned.So, I have to ask, do you prefer the R8 or the R9?
