2017 R9, found on eBay in 2001 for $3800! Due to a brain fart or fumble fingers I had the dates wrong, it's actually a 2007 I acquired in 2008.
Dang, pretty much the same thing I'm thinking of doing but hesitant because I'm so happy with my R8 the way it is and not sure I could be without it for so long!@pjholland and @1allspub I'm happy with the stock fretboard so I am going with a Standard Makeover and what they call "Broken In Aging". The top and neck will be contoured to vintage specs but no Brazilian fretboard. The VOS finish is nice but I wanted a more authentic (un-plasticized) nitrocellulose lacquer finish with weather checking. I am not expecting it to be finished until February 2023.
