I know that look can be achieved by staining black then sanding back the top before finishing (like PRS does) but I think those photos have the contrast cranked up which is exaggerating the look. You can tell by the shadow details on his hand.

That’s a mid to late ‘90’s R9 with an enhanced big leaf western maple top. You won’t find anything in recent years like that. And a killer top like that from the ‘90’s will still bring 10-12K.
