I was unfamiliar with this model before it was offered up by the original owner. I was a bit skeptical, but when it arrived I found that it was exactly what it should be, a sweet R8 with all the features of the model plus the easy access neck heel.
I just realized that I didn't get the specs for this one yet, but listing anyway. It is all original, has the big 1958 neck profile, the original case and COA/paperwork is included. The guitar is 100% original.
