Been away for awhile, Had to step away due to guitar gas!!! I had some USA Gibsons, LP Std, SG, Always missed my Histori’s I’ve had Dozens over the years, Well Got diagnosed with cancer about 5 months and had a successful surgery one month ago and my thinking of life has changed a bit and WTF I’m buying what makes me happy. I’ve always been an R8 guy and love plain tops as no flame was ever good enough and had me chasing the flame. Love this guitar and the aging is ok the sides and back are ok but the top does not look so authentic mostly it’s just lines side to side, overall I’m happy with her.

Congrats on both your victories brother. I have always been a fan of a flamed top. But as of late plain tops are really digging at me to pull the trigger on a R8 in dirty lemon. I saw one one zzounds a few month ago that just called to me. But I let her walk by because I just bought a brand new Harley Davidson. Kicking my self in the ass for not getting both. Because I have yet to see one like that again. Seen many R8's in dirty lemon...just not like that one.
