    I picked up this R7 a couple weeks ago but I think its time to admit I’m just not a humbucker guy.

    Players grade guitar with no cracks or breaks. Naturally amber binding with real finish checking and slight greening on arm area.

    As per previous owner, the neck is .900 at first fret with smaller shoulders (closer to an R9 profile than normal R7), which feels about right to me. Weight is 9.0lbs. Fretboard is a nice dark rosewood.

    Custom wound Throbak’s. 8.4K neck and 8.0K bridge. Both Long A5s. Has Vitamin Q paper-in-oil tone caps and comes with aftermarket black case.

    Price is $SPF via USPS Money Order. PayPal works if you pick up the fee. Shipping will run $75 via USPS Priority Mail.

    The 1999-2002 Historic's are consistently uber exceptional!!

    If I didn't already have (4) GT's and (3) other R's that fall within this date range, I'd be all over this one!!
