Does anyone have a rough idea what a 97" R0 is worth?
Lawyer top, as typical for that period, ice teaish color, but no cert.

What is a lawyer top? I think the R0s from the 90s are the Historics worth the most, all being equal, outside of special runs, and 93/94 Murphys.

If you get a speeding ticket the guitar will get it reduced to sodomy.

Lawyer top is/was a term used to describe more intensely flamed tops that were prevelent back then, a AAAAA kind of deal.

Kink, I saw one sell recently at Mark's for over 6k, but it had the tags, cert, and all that bullshit. I was surprized by the price.

That was a '97 and it didn't have a cert, no certs until '99
