Great feeling guitar. Burst is outstanding. Feels lighter than 8lbs 9ozs. Really digging this one:

Nice looking R9, have you decided if you're going to pull the trigger ?

It was pulled last December. Bought new from GC Hollywood. Just getting around to pics now. Absolutely love the feel of this one. Flame is vintage-like and the color is unreal. I'll try to capture the top a bit better on my SLR. :hank

I had one of these, they're good. I did like the color. Had a bit too much VOS'ing for my tastes but I know that can be buffed off.

I actually noticed this too. I've had one other VOS R9 in the past and don't remember this much aging on them and on the hardware as well. All very light but definitely a heavier VOS treatment. :hank

Yup the colour and burst on this run is outstanding. Vos is more heavy, I like it the hardware looks more aged - the finish is perfect. I feel these will go down as a great run. My current favorite Lester.
