Ok....so technically not a new guitar day because I traded my Marc Bolan to a forum member in the summer time for this beauty of a R9. I was hesitant because the Bolan was a beauty but the neck wasn’t as thick as I like and you all know how it goes...anyways... This R9 was then then sent to Gord Millers Vintage Guitar Restoration in BC to get it accurately aged to look like a well played but not abused original burst. The wait time was approximately 3 months and I added Montreux knobs. I think the finish product looks great, legitimately old. All pictures taken with my iPhone and no filter. Hard to get all the details but I hope you get the picture. Also, if your not into aged guitars let it slide as I don’t want this to become a debate. Thanks.
