Well I just loved my 2003 R9, and this one really took my breath away….
Deep rich sounding guitar that has all the characteristics of that R9 “Tone Cannon” I once owned…It is very well built and solid, like a tank….a bit on the heavy side.
It came to me without pickups and some electronic issues that I quickly fixed….I put the Sigil’s with the 1957 wire in it and I am very pleased with the result….very robust and resonant at the same time.
Super Dark Chocolate fret board….Brazilian….has to be…it has that smell….(I know, I know….it’s probably Madagascar RW). It does not fall in the Brazilian Serial # range…..Has the COA and a beat up case…
There is some very cool playwear on this one, it was loved and used by it’s original owner….always a good sign… even a tiny bit of checking….
