Hi All,
2007 is a year that all other 2K7 R9 owner's will attest of how wonderful the year was/were.
I remember the year as all of us would....how shiny and perfect enough for us afficiando's to be able to play/look/share and gab about your latest addition let alone the first time you've acquired one.

Looking at your R9 of how pristine and shiny and all?

Here's the question? playability and tone aside here.

How does your R9 ( heck! any year of R9 then. ) Look like now? Overall on mine? " I LOVE IT " :hank

Before it was all shiny and now? Has there any change in your R9's hardware?

Did you let it relic/tarnish by itself? or did your fake and bake the whole bit?

Show us your before and after shots of your favorite R9.

I'll start this one off please!!

Before: Hardware all shiny.

After: A little bit of fading/blur in certain areas. But the hardware has morphed into tarnished bits in areas here and there...whereas the body finish is still in great form/finish. From the TP to the pup covers.

You guys!!:lol

I was ready to have this thread deleted by the moderators after this week.:biggrin:

Yeah! I just used a 10 year old camera for the pre-post shots.
Wait til the EOS comes in.:headbange

I kinda cleaned her up a bit, but it looks so much better when you just play'er and leave 'er be a while. Then the character starts showing up.:ganz

Cheers!:salude

This is my '07 R9 New From Mid-Town Guitars:

And today with some updated plastic and switch nut:
DSC00330.jpg


The VOS stuff has worn off and up close the finish has shrunken and settled a bit. i play this all of the time (rehersals, gigs, neighborhood jams) but I keep it in the case and only one tiny imdent near the switch from a microphone. My #1. Buzzy PG, dyed Dimarzio rings and Blue Collar switch ring, nut and tip- the BC part won't take dye- period.
