Don't forget the elusive R6 now. My favorite Gold Top which is due for a string swap anytime soon now.
Correct, there are plain tops in all 3 years. Usually comes down to your neck preference for the reissue. 58's have some wild tops now. I would call your guitar a 60.They all have some cool tops, some 59s look to BBQ some 58s look like a bad LP classic with a clown finish some 60s look to much like the tomato soup can, and have way over stated tops. the point is THEY ARE ALL COOL AND ALL DIFFERENT. the 58,59,60 are all similar enough to be lumped together and different enough for us to have to choose when buying. get what ever reissue year works for you. personally i just got a CME 1958 but it has a V2 60 neck profile and I LOVE IT. what year would that make mine ?????
