    Beautiful R8 here. 2012. Bourbon Burst Plaintop. VOS. All stock, no mods. Zero fret wear. An absolutely superb playing and sounding Les Paul. It has a wonderful warmth and harmonic balance that you don't find with many LPs. Plays effortlessly. Perfect weight at 8.8 pounds. Frets are like glass. Long neck tenon, beautiful one piece back, nylon nut, celluloid inlays, larger frets. Neck is 0.901” at 1st fret & 0.102" at the 12th. A bit more of a 59 profile than typical 58. Looks beautiful with very minor play wear (light VOS treatment, not heavy like some). No binding bleed. Lifton style case with full case candy and COA. Priced to go quick at $2750 shipped! I cover all fees.

    Nice looking R8! In this bizzaro world we now live in I think a nice Historic Plain Top is FAR more rare than Flame Top! GLWS
