It's always a joy to have an R6 pass through the store. This 2006 model is no exception. Nicely played in and very lightweight. The top is starting to see some very nice 'greening' to the top from the copper content in the finish oxidising, the instrument is on its way to having the patina of a worn in 1950s example.
