    For no good reason at all I decided to find a dramatic-topped Les Paul.
    After perusing multiple dealer websites and ads for a while , I ending up choosing a top from Curt at House Of Guitars. After torturing myself for a couple of weeks I chose the top amongst several and the guitar was delivered on time. Other than choosing the top it's a regular R9 VOS obtained before the ludicrous 2015 price increase.

    Sweet!! I'm two days into owning a similar lemon burst R8 with a nicely figured top as well. Yours looks awesome.

    I need to stop looking at these kind of threads. This is not good for the health of my savings account.

    Outstanding. Definitely one of the coolest looking R9s I've ever seen on here, or elsewhere for that matter. Congrats.

    I've noticed that this type of guitar seems to show its best in natural lighting. Very beautiful. Congrats.
