Hi, All.

I have a line of sight on a pretty great deal at my local Sam Ash for a brand new 'Guitar of Distinction' R9. Any feedback? Are these just your typical 'hand-picked' tops/specs that a lot of bigger retailers offer? It's about $2k off of list so I am questioning if it is of lesser quality than other Custom Shop LPs.

Thanks in advance!

It's not of any lesser quality because it is just a regular R9, and I doubt it's a hand-picked top. Sam Ash just categorizes all of their high-end guitars as "Guitars of Distinction" just like Musician's Friend calls them "Private Reserve." Unless it is a Sam Ash spec guitar (which it is not), then it is just a regular R9. Nothing wrong with that though.
