I know there are more R8s around here?

not sure if it will look the same once it gets back from the CS for finish repair, but here is mine!!

Man those 1st burst’s were such a pain to age. The top checking took a whole day. But they looked really good after they were built out.

Did you actually work at Gibson aging them?
I think Gibson did a terrific job with them… they look amazing. Have had several aged Gibsons and these are amongst the very best…

I actually ordered a custom aged pickguard though.. as the original aged pickguard seems to have a spray on material which i fear would wear out as I play… Silly haha but I actually really like that new pickguard, i think it looks more like the real one :)
