Nice used 2016 Gibson R8 with "lightly" figured top. Some angles show strong flame, others are more plain like the originals. Lots of character! Plays and sounds wonderful. It's mint, unplayed with no issues. Comes with the original brown Lifton-style case, COA, and all paperwork. Here's your chance to pick an R8 that has a top more like a 1959 Reissue. All the great 2014 specs that were so well-received.
