Ok, there seems to be a very large number of users here who own a '52 reissue and why not? The model has become a classic itself. Spanning from '82-present times is a pretty good run. Maybe we could get everyone in and see what years we all have. Post some pictures and discus this fine model. MIJ and CIJ models don't count, neither do partscasters, or MIM 50s. Here's mine which dates to March of 2007. It's a three piece body and it weighs in at around 7.75 lbs.
