An absolutely gorgeous Custom Shop R9 that was beautifully "aged" by Tom Murphy. Upgraded with a pair of ThroBak PAF vintage repro humbuckers, this guitar smokes! Light weigh & exceptionally resonant with a perfectly sculpted neck that plays like a dream up & down the fretboard. Delivered to your door with a pro set up from the experts here at Cream City Music.
