For your consideration is my very gently used 2014 Gibson Custom Shop Figured and Chambered R8 (CR8). This guitar was produced as a limited run for 2014 and was available only from four Benchmark dealers in the USA. The figured tops were hand selected for the run by the Benchmark dealers and this one has a great top. This guitar is finished in Gloss Lemon Burst color with nickel hardware. It has a killer the neck profile that measures 0.900” at the first fret and 0.956” at the twelfth fret. It is very comfortable with small shoulders and a slight V shape. Pickup output measures 7.56k at the neck PUP and 8.34k at the bridge PUP. The body is chambered and the guitar weighs in at an ultra comfortable 7lb 7.6oz It has a super dark fingerboard and all the current historic specs.
