Lovely! I like how it's pretty much a plain top but the flames peek out at certain angles. Great stuff!!!
Awesome guitar man!! I've been through several reissues so far and my R8 plain top is my favorite of them all. I sell/trade a lot, but the R8 will never go!!
It took me a while to slot my favorite R as my #1. I knew it was a keeper; wasn't sure it was an Ace. Glad to hear you are enjoying it so much!
Fus, so far it took me about a year to really gel with any guitar. With this guitar, I just started playing it, 5 mins in, I was sold.
That's why my post might come as an obnoxious one but I was super excited about that
+1 found an R8 Lefty hanging unloved in a Gibson dealers store. Had been manufactured 2 yrs prior so had been hanging around a while seasoning. Had picked up and tried what lefty R9, R8s GT's I could find, but this one felt perfect. Got it for just above cost to clear it (lefty's are slow moving ) ...... she rings and sings.
