I have just received my R0 60Th bought in an Italian shop (Centro Citarre).
It's the V3 version ...(because of the size of my hands...)
It weighs 8,8 lbs.
A marvel !!!!

Nice, the V3 was the neck i originally wanted, but the only one local was a bit ropey in the finish quality, orange peel on the neck binding like you wouldn't believe, the nut didn't look like it was straight and whoever routed the body left straight lines where there should be curves, like a lo poly game asset, so ended up getting the V2, which i am now very happy with. I still want to try a V3 one but there are no good tops in the UK. yours looks great.

Nothing to complain about the finish ... everything is "ok".
The "V3" suits me better than the one of the R8 and R9
I had seen some nice" flamed tops"
In the UK I have looked but the prices are still high.
And the financial negotiations are really very difficult for small discounts.

Very nice! Looking to have a lineup like this some day. Just tack on a 57’ BB and I’m set

the next target is a "BB 57" ....
But the price hurts ....
To say the least, would love to have my hands on a 3 pickup model. Just need my great aunt Gertrude who probably doesn’t exist to die and leave me her mass fortune so I can grab one. Not holding my breath though

Did you get a good deal from Centro chitarre?
Last time I asked if there were discounts on previous year models when I was I was shopping for a les paul they looked at me like I came from Mars. Not centro chitarre specifically, but I noticed it's an extremely common attitude.

I paid 5199€ for it
"MUSIKHAUS HERMANN" in Germany offered me the same price after longer negotiations.

Yeah a 57 bb is on my list, there was a 2020 one on eBay think it sold last September for £4.2k, when I didn;t have the cash, I now have the cash but cannot find one. But I am going to build one this year, I have a 70mm thick hunk of old Honduran mahogany ready and waiting.

BB 57 is a rare 'foodstuff' ... at a decent price ...

Good luck with your production.

Very nice!

How do you like the unpotted pickups in the 2018 and 2020 models vs the 2017?

The rosewood on the 2017 looks different to the other 2, I wonder if they changed the type?

If your hands are too small for that R8, I'm happy to dispose of it for you, I only charge postage!

That fretboard on the 2017 looks similar to my 2018, so maybe just random chance?
