    My 2005 58 reissue LP arrived today. I bought it from Bob Reinhardt and I have to say, it is everything he described it to be. The guitar is very reasonant. I first played it unplugged and it was loud and open sounding. Alot of LPs that I have played unplugged could not be easily heard. This one rings. Plugged in, it sounds awesome. Thick, warm and rich. The neck is very comfortable and the fret job is top notch. Plus, it stays in tune. This is such a great playing instrument. I am so happy with it. Bob is great to deal with and I thank him for the quick delivery and honest description of this guitar.

    Here are some pictures that Bob had sent me earlier on. I will take more when I can.

    Once you get a good R8 it's hard to find anything better in the LP realm. Congrats and enjoy!

    Wow, that looks awfully similar to my old one! I had the pointers off the knobs and everything, too. I only sold it to get a Cloud Nine version of the same guitar - R8s are killer.
