    Been wanting a 57 Reissue for a while and in this color. Finally got one in a trade! Seems like it didn't get played much. Frets are like new.

    HNGD!

    Although... I wonder, why didn't you just get a Classic Series 50, @AfroBill ?
    It looks the same and is a lot cheaper, or am I missing something here?

    But maybe it's just me - I would always take the less exquisite of two guitars for fear of dinging it or not wanting to mod it when it comes to it.
