Fcuk!! it took this long to get a nice simple kudos for this piece if shit? I think not?:hmm
But kharrison brother? Thank you for the honest greet & cheer, You know your shit that's fer sure. I dont care what the lawyers/doctors (unless your one?) says with all 'em collections they have but dont play. the last pics is pretty shitty i might say and i can do better. It's just the excitement still sinking in tho'. Now i challenge anybody that can come close to this piece of crap i just recently acquired with a price nobody can touch. Sorry for the short egotistical rant for i have been bitten by an R9 gas.



Cheers!:salude mate!!

Sorry bro! I was just enjoying the painful goodness of the gas/bug i caught this week with this beauty. Didn't mean to harass or hurry anybody for their comments as i know there are quite a bit of R9 owners here that's got better tops and all, but this baby really grew on me really quickly as i hardly see this type of flames/grain goin on these days. You'd think that the other R9 owners would be chimen' in to see an R9 that's has a couple of years in mileage allready. There are quite a lot of thicker all over flames and grains since this R9 hoopla got all started in the early 90's.:3zone

I think as it has been proven that all R9's have their own different looks and tone to die for and of all the CS reissue? The R9 has set the bar and has it's placement as the futures so called Standard.:applaude

Peace!:hank

Right on, another 07!

Thanks my fellow Canuck!

I really like your DB also. But with a chance of getting one here lately at this end of the pond is kinda unpredictable this time 'round.

Where's the thread started by our fellow Canadians with 'em CS Re-Issues?

Btw? there is one Canadian Maple Model R8 here locally that even comes with a bottle of Canadian Maple Syrup exclusively for our Canadian market and what a beauty that one is.

Cheers!:salude

No problem. I really like it especially the last pic. I thought it was strange that no one commented on it yet. I bet she really comes alive at different angles. Play it in good health.

Congrats on the R9. Pre-'09 is where it's at - More bang for the buck, amongst other things. I like the flame on that one. I would assume the red looks darker in person, and probably similar to the red on my '07 R0. It's hard to photograph them as I recall.

Congrats on the score Trans-Am! Looks a mighty fine guitar to me. Love it and i prefer the PG on these days. I think it balances more, but it's yours bro... all the best.

Thanks! sapi! I was torn in getting an 2K9 R9 instead but i know i made a smart/sweet move on this one so i think i'll keep her in great health. It would be my utmost error in passing this baby up. Yup? the p/g will stay on for now, i think?:hmm

Cheers!:salude
