That is a gorgeous top! Has all the charm of a plain top and all the pizazz of a flame top.

Great score!
Couldn’t have said it any better - I feel like you could take all the flame away and it still has a vintage-ish vibe to it with all the mineral streaks/flecs, etc and would still look awesome - I’ve only had it since Friday, but it’s my favorite guitar I’ve ever owned (from an aesthetics perspective) in my 25+ years of playing - hopefully I still feel the same post honeymoon on its playability & tone

I remember looking at that one on Wildwood’s site! I saw it in the morning...went back in the afternoon to look again and it was gone haha. Great score. Congrats!

Here it is...I won the grand prize, hands down the best top ever seen anywhere on the face of this Earth. All other LP’s must bow down to her greatness and accept their merciless defeat... In all seriousness, wanted to share a few pics of my latest purchase - not new (but new for me) - 2018 R9 VOS in honey lemon - this is the finish I’ve been lusting after for some time now - finish is specific to 2018, but is my favorite of all of the recent “lemon” offerings - bought one new in 2018, and foolishly sold it a year or so ago - having been looking to get another one ever since...and boy oh boy was this one worth the wait! Mint/unplayed condition - picked up for an amazing price from Wildwood.

I saw it come across my reverb feed and instantly called them about it - bought it about 10 minutes later after a quick price negotiation and a discussion about the condition (which was mint)

Congratulations! Pretty.

More importantly, they play and sound great.
So far so good - spent the weekend setting it up, oiling the board, changing strings, etc. - seems to be a great player as well - custom buckers sound great, no dead spots along the board, two thumbs up all the way around!

Do you have a link to the reverb ad? (or Wildwood?)
I'm asking just out of curiosity, as I'm always interested in how a top looks in other pictures (as the red and flames can look really different depending on the light). My top actually looked quite different in reality than it did on the pics. Better, fortunately! ;-)

Yep, that's got a lovely '59 vibe going on. Nice score!

Was totally joking about it being the best - it’s has a really nice top though and just wanted to share it with a bit of humor - thanks!

It's gorgeous, Cory...no humor implied here... :applause: :cool:
