That is nice, I thought according to Gibson's site they only came in "washed cherry"?

Thanks guys. I just did the tracking number thing and the guitar has made it from Colorado to Raleigh North Carolina which is less than 90 miles from where I live. The scheduled delivery date is Tuesday. So close and yet so far away.

I don't know Bones. This is only the second faded tabacco one I have seen on Wildwoods site. Someone posted a link to another dealer, (I don't rember the dealer) who hade one a short while back. I feel real lucky to get this one. There was a feeding frenzy going on at Wildwood when I called them on Friday.

Vic DaPra had a couple. I got one and the other's long gone too. The last couple of years the R8 was "only available in Butterscotch" and then one way or another there were a few cherry bursts and tribursts and darkbursts.
