Finally found an R9 ('21) for an okay price, decent weight at 8.25 lbs. Neck and frets feel a bit easier than the R8. The flame is a bit messy. The color is darker than expected, more orange than yellow. Pops more in daylight.

the sound is very clear, a bit more solid than R8, probably the few extra oz.

That's perfect. Love the area around the selector switch. As for the flame being a bit messy, Look at Greeny (and other original bursts), did that have a meticulous flame? What makes it perfect is that it's not perfect, just like the originals.
