I played that super nice 1960 burst today in NOLA !
It did remind me my old '60 (0 8070).

serial 0 7171 (a new one here... )
and if you look at 0 7169 at burstserial.com, it does have the same rich sunburst color (not tomato soup at all)

Don't know what you guys are getting so worked up about, it's only a five string.

It's a shocking but little known fact (being kept quiet by those with a vested interest in doing so...) that many Burst owners are so financially stretched as a result their purchase that they can no longer afford a full set of strings.

Vivid red suggesting a guitar that didn't see a ton of daylight, but a re-fret and stop tail/bridge wear suggesting the opposite (?).

Great photos, beautifully flecked maple!

It is from the era of the non-fading red. :)

Seriously? 1960 lacquer/dye different than '58, '59? 'Never knew this -

Not the entire year, but starting somewhere roughly half way.
Pretty common knowledge for decades. :salude

Wow! If it looks that good in a photo, I can imagine how good it must look in person. :salude
