Well, I finally found the Les Paul for me. I'd been hunting for an R8 for awhile now and finally found the one. It's a limited edition R8 in "Mapleburst" I've seen another one ( there was a run of 75 produced ) on this forum. It even came with a bottle of maple syrup. Tons of figure in the top, ( Can't really see it in the pics, I'm the worlds worst photographer ) and a little flame in the back. The neck is closer to the R9's I've played, but she's awesome. No name yet, but I've been playing her exclusively for about a week. Just love it. She sounds awesome

Actually, other than the heavy figure on mine, 2many's pictures are colour wise alot closer to mine. As I said earlier, I'm the worlds worst photographer.

But yeah, in person it actually kind of resembles a tobaccoburst that's suffered some fading.

:hmm:

Man, congratulations.
These are very nice. I think I´ve seen a R9 with this color somewhere, where also this cool bottle and the COA were shown.
Absolutely beautiful.
I didn´t know they made R8s though.

I wish you a lot of fun and joy with this awesome piece.

Thanks man. Didn't know they did a limited edition R9, so that's cool to know. Not that it matters, I was hunting for the right R8 plaintop anyways.

It has a real understated elegance about it. It doesn't scream at you, it entices you! Sharp axe! Congrats.:applause:

I really want one of these. Droog, could you phone my wife and tell her that owning it has made you a better human being, and a more complete member of society?? Maybe improved you sex life ?
Seriously, I want an R8 Plaintop, and the whole Canadian special-edition thing is the kicker. Very nice !
