Hi guys! What is the general opinion on R9s manufacturered between 2000~2006? It seems to be the newer R9s have less intense tops whereas pre 2004s (?) have more intense tops. I've only seen a few so it is hard to generalize for me. Those of you who own/owned or have/had extensive experience with LPs built during 2000~2006, please shed some light. Points I would like to know are... 1. Quality of the maple top 2. Build quality (finish, binding, and little details) 3. Neck shape 4. Sound quality (wood characteristics) Thanks!
