Got it yesterday! Seems like a great excuse to share a picture or two
That's a figured fretboard.Whats with the black line in the fretboard?
Whats with the black line that runs down the fretboard? Did you change the switch cap? Where did you buy it?
It means it has character
I didn't change the switch cap, but I looked at some other photos of R9's and see that it might of been? I bought it used at Action Guitar in Arlington, VA. Great little shop. I traded in a Hot Rod Deluxe for a relic'd blues jr. too.
As for the fretboard, here is a picture of it...I like it.
never heard the term before. Thanks.
GuitarGuy503, that link doesn't work for historic Les Pauls. The only info you can get from a Rx serial number is the year it was made.
Great looking guitars, guys!
