Well technically not a new guitar day as I've spent a month with it making sure I could give an opinion "after" the honeymoon phase.

I purchased it from a dealer off Reverb, they had some excellent pics wich I'll post a few of.

Was born Feb 14 '22, Valentines day ♥️. Thought that was kinda cool.

Anyhow, was in new condition. Has a lighter then typical burst then I've seen on most unburst or at least the ones I've seen. Has some mineral streaks etc wich many scoff at but I genuinely like. All the little details are well done, binding work, nut, finish etc. I previously had a unburst that had some funky binding scraping , wonky would be the word. This one is about perfect in that aspect.

Where it stands out for me mostly, isn't looks or level of finish, but the fact it's the acoustically loudest electric I've owned, even more so then my r9 wich previously held that title lol. Also comes in at a trim 8.4 lb (without pickgaurd)

So, all that said, I really like this 1, just feels, plays, sounds a touch above for me.

Some pics (black background are from dealer)

Mineral streaks in a nice Maple top are like a beauty mark on a glamorous Hollywood starlet.
Not a flaw.

I’m with you, absolutely LOVE those mineral streaks. And I’m a big fan of Unbursts, so Valentine is hitting a lot of chords with me (pun intended ;)—killer top, killer color, killer weight, nice dark fretboard).

Congrats and HNGD! Play her in good health! :dude:
