HI all. Picked up a new R9 at Daves last week. Got an opportunity to play a buch of R8's and R9's. I went in with the intent of checking out the differences between the older models and the 2013's. If an R8 really "grabbed" me I'd consider getting it. (I already have a 2010 R9 that I like and didn't really want to sell it). WELL.......I played a 2013 R9 and the top was "almost" exactly what I have been looking for. Tea burst and a nice wide flame. But the kicker was that it was only 8.2 lbs...which is the same as my current 2010. And it sounded phenomenal. So......out comes the credit card. Ouch. The 2010 R9 will have to go mainly as I love the top on the new one more.

Here's a few pics.

I have dealt with Daves for my 2 favorite guitars. Both purchased new. (The ONLY guitars since I was a kid I purchased new). First time dealt with Laun who was great. This time Brian who was wonderful. I literally cant say enough good things about Daves and the people he has working for him. I've met Dave a few times (Sold him a 79 Hamer standard) and he is top notch also.

I know there are plenty of dealers out there..but if you live within driving distance of Daves....its worth the trip.
