Not all R8’s are created equal. This one is special. Lightweight, resonant. Lovely handful of a neck profile and perfect PAF goodness from the Custombuckers. And pictures can’t capture how active and flamey the top really is.
Honest wear for a guitar that’s nearly ten years old. Some of the VOS treatment has worn off where the guitar comes in contact with the player. There is aniline dye bleed into much of the binding, especially the neck (very common on these guitars). There’s also a light impression in the finish on the back that’s hard to catch in pictures; it’s a couple inches long and you can barely feel it and only see it in certain light. I believe the wear and/or tarnishing on the hardware is from the VOS treatment. Light scratches and swirls on various parts of the guitar, with only a couple notable blemishes. One is a small ding on the back edge of the headstock near the low e tuning machine, the other are some dark marks by the strap button on the bottom.
Included original hardshell case is in great shape with only a couple marks. Also included are some hangtags, COA and Custom Shop switchplate cover.
I ship quickly and carefully and am happy to answer any questions. Thanks for checking out my shop and have a great day.
