I'd be too afraid to play any of these fancy topped fandangles, one little chip or scratch and it'd stick out like the dogs danglies :(

I have more desire than knowledge for these but an R8 with a top like that must be the rarest of the rare I would have thought?

A lot of R8's with big tops. The R8 has a bigger neck than an R9....other than that, they're identical.

Not to take anything away from that amazing R8, Dewey has a fabulous top and hence why I asked opsfella for an updated shot! Maybe you could drop it off to me and I could snap a few photos ...I mean, we're literally a couple of k's down the same road...it just might take a while though.
