    I gave you bad info. It’s a 59’ .

    side by side with my 59’ reissue custom shop.

    and no, I did not store it without strings.

    Man, that's gorgeous! :)

    What are the pot dates? 137 59××, or 58s?

    That black custom shop is pretty special too. Just curious, does the custom shop (or the other one for that matter) have the bridge plate that allows top loading as well as string through stringing?

    The "other one" (real 59) is a top loader only. You can see that in two of the photos.

    Can't see if the black one has holes for top loading. The owner will have to chime in.

    Unfortunately the custom shop does not have top load. Not sure how they call it a 59’ reissue.
    The real 59 is top load only.
