Well, if I can quote myself, this is what I wrote about the things a fortnight ago;



It's actually the one with the hat-box knobs which is the R6.
Compare the 'points' on the inlays; the differences in fret-board binding; the slot-head V's Phillips-head p'g bracket mounting screws; the different edge profiles of the p'guards and so on.

Yes; the R6 is closer to the original (obviously) but can a nearly $4k-worth of difference be justified by such finely tuned detailing?

Pip.


The back looks a bit darker on the R6 too. I agree. I don't see a $4k difference between the two but for those people who want historically accurate specs, I guess those are the ones that would fork over the extra money. I would have to save up $12,000.00 to get the R6. $6,000.00 for the guitar, $6,000.00 in something for the wife, so she doesn't feel left out. :)
