Hello,

I would like to present you my new Les Paul R8 from 2018. I called her the Defect Burst because of the strange wood grain on the top. I still don't now if it's hot or not! Just tell me what you think? It's unusual but maybe it's her strong point.

Oh man how could you? I think you better send that monstrosity to me.

Truth is she's a beauty and has a lot of what I personally look for in a top.

The first thing I thought of were these Heritage 80 guitars from the 80's.

Could just be me, but this was the first series to even get me LOOKING at a Les Paul at all...

I had never even considered them before..

I love them BECAUSE of the movement in the grain pattern, more than just a regular Christmas tree pattern down the front.

Another vote for hot, simply because to me it adds movement, character and uniqueness to the top.
