thanks for posting my pics for me. I couldn't figure out how to do that. This is a wonderful guitar.

Let's see if this family photo works...

I usually think Gold is Gold and they all look the same. This one however is a beauty!! Congrats

If you have the time and inclination, dwell on the close-ups and finish on this one... the gold and woodgrain are superb!

To me that gold color looks quite a bit different than mine. Still looks great though. This guitar was essentially unplayed/new condition. The price was about the price of the current USA Goldtop. Just couldn’t pass it up.

Yeah, R7 and USAs are different...
You gotta good deal. Newish/used R7s have long been the best bang-for-buck LPs, sho'nuff! :salude

You're going to see different gold finishes(with the Historics) in any given year since 2013........usually all in the same year of production.....on R7, R6 and R4 LPs.
Green/Gold as with djcmusicians..... and Honey/Gold which is a more amber colour...... and then even sometimes a Brass/Gold which has a copper look but it's pretty rare and not the best or historic finish imo.
