2007 Chambered R8 (HM)


2017 R8 (HM)


2014 R8 (HM)


And the latest addition to the pack, a '98 MCarty to replace a '97 McCarty that I sold about 15 years ago. I tossed a pair of WCR Godwoods into this, and its now right up there with my Les Pauls. The wide-fat neck on this guitar feels like the perfect '59 profile.

Recently received this unfinished project. Working out the plans for the final product. In the meantime, enjoy the flame. Brazilian fretboard off of a '55 to boot, no flame in that rosewood though... Some naptha on the upper bout to accentuate the possibilities. That's raw wood popping flames like that! Streaks and flecks too. I'm excited about this one.

@integra evan is that pic at an angle? Looks like the seam is off center? Absolutely not crapping on your guitar. It's gorgeous. I'm more intrigued by the model, or is a conversion, or just my eyes playing tricks on me. Between the pickups the seam looks in line with the center, and at the tailpiece it looks north of center.

Maybe my Wino ways are getting the best of me.

I think it's just the shadows playing tricks on the eyes. It's my 60th anniversary R9 I just picked up:)

nah, nothing wrong with your eyes, centered at the neck pickup, millimeters left at the string stop and strap button, and doesn't attract a bit from the beauty, but makes it unique. Like persian rugmakers who included a small imperfection because they believed that only their god was perfect... an act of humility.
