Picked up this 2006 R9 with a madagascar rosewood fretboard like 2 months ago, and its really crazy how the color looks completely different depending on the lighting. Wired up with JPPost72's and real 50's bees

It can go from a light burst, to a cherry burst, to a honey burst, to an iced tea depending on the lighting.

Just wanted to share some pics of this guitar.

Its the same guitar in all the pics, but some of the pics are older from when I didn't have the bridge pup cover on.

Oh yes... The type of lighting has everything to do with it. So does the chip in the camera and how it responds to the spectrum of reflecting light. The light source will determine this response at a given white balance.


Nice top on that one!!

It all looks weird and left-handed to me :)

Only kidding! Nice fiddle you got there.

It never ceases to amaze me what light, especially natural light, can do to a nice flame top.
I like the outdoor shot best, but it looks great in all of them

Beautiful guitar ..Yup , happens a lot when trying to get accurate pics of Gibson LP's .
But IMO, it's a good trade off , we get those fine Maple tops on our guitars .... With some beautiful paint jobs ....
Win-Win ,imo :thumb:
