Got this from Curt at HOG. Really a killer 60th Anniversary R9. Has a slightly fatter neck, story Curt heard was that a few guitars were gonna be for Lee Roy Parnell Series but then didn't make it into that run. So this has all the standard R9 Anniversary features but has the fat neck. Also weight is great at 8lb 9oz. zThe finish is like a slow iced tea but a bit darker in the upper bout.

LOVE the serial number on this one too 9 91959 so cool! Thanks Curt.

Very nice! So how fat is the neck...more shoulders or more depth?

Based on the fade pattern, I'd say that was more than likely a Lee Roy
well...yes and no, it's got a lot less cherry than the ones I've seen pics of. More brown/tea burst in this one.

Fair enough. Hard for me to tell as I have only seen Gibson's pics and they're not always that accurate when comparing to an outdoor shot such as yours.

Normally I like the look of an LP with a pickguard on. Do NOT do that to that guitar!!! Looks incredible as is!
