Finally, my first Historic. :dude::thumb:
2010 VOS R8 - Iced Tea
I have to thank you guys for all the help during the negotiations with the previous owner.
The guy was a collector and didn`t even took off the VOS sticker from the pickguard. It has the COA and all the case candy.
It`s in mint condition.

With all the different shades of Iced Tea, don`t you guys think it resembles a Washed Cherry a bit more than a Iced Tea? I`ve been looking some photos on the internet an how can those two guitar be iced tea???

My 05 R8 Ice tea is much lighter than yours. Almost no red at all.

Top one looks like a cherryburst, the bottom one looks like a honeyburst.

Yours looks sweet, congrats!:dude:

I was thinking about fading the red a little bit by putting it under the sun. Nothing abrupt, just to try to get a little more brownish. Do you think it will fade or its just going to be a waste of time?
