I had the R4 blacked out for a long while ,because at least 3 buddies had that same guitar .It was like girls with the same prom dress . I only changed it back to the cremes because I was on a Sister Rosetta Tharpe tribute concert.
This guitar has some serious flame under that gold ....which I love ...the fact that it's hidden . Im not into that burst cult
I got the Hurricane Katrina R7 , but I prefer the wraparound slab w/ p90s any day
