Ive had many guitar the last year, searching for the right one. The problem I have is my hand, I have Multiple Sklerose and if the neck is too fat, small, thin or wide it ends in tremor, cramps, severe pain within minutes in my hand and fingers. So I have had them all, R9, R8, R7, early 90's, older guitars and newer and the results have been the same. Pain and tremor.

So in my mind I have had the idea that an R0 would be great, the neck carve etc... but hard to find one.

Finally I found one. This is a brand new 2019 model. Its been hanging in their show room.

Its comfortable, it plays so nice, sounds crazy good and finally I feel like im home. Ive had this feeling on some of the guitar previous but then the problems kicks in in my hand. But not with this one.
It plays like butter and im loosing my self when im playing it :), I just drift away.

Its in Iced Tea burst but I find the colour to be more deep and it weighs 8.3 lb.

That's very nice. I'm seeing some nice tops lately. Much better than the past couple years.

Congrats!
