I love my R8 and R9 guitars. I literally went through dozens over 20 yrs untl I found them. I started jonesing for a historic in the 90s when they promised more accurate vintage tones and playability. But I never really found a "dog". Just guitars that I didn't get along with. I like bright alive tones as opposed to dark and Wooly. But even these two guitars could be slightly better . If I bought a guitar new I'd have it made to order. Why not get it exactly the way you want?

Custom Axcess, right?

The Axcess model is so underappreciated
Yeah, it's a limited edition I think. The Axcess is really on point these days, especially with the new Apex headstock. You're spot-on, they seem to be very underappreciated which is a shame. That being said, they seem to have a very low production volume and are frightfully expensive.

How are the necks on these Axcesses compared to R0 V3 in terms of size and shape/profile?
My Axcess is one from 08; not sure if the neck is spec'd the same anymore.

I just side by side played both. My Axcess has a beefier, rounder, fuller neck than the R0 (V3).

It seems as though I am finding that I actually prefer the chunkier neck.
