    Very pretty. I love the grain in that one. Almost looks like a one-piece top.

    Very nice! I really prefer regular grain to the gaudy excessive flaming I see on most.

    '58 has a chunkier rounded neck prifile. It also has smaller fret wire, and a plain maple top with little or no "flame."
    '59 has the same neck, but with medium-jumbo frets, and a "flamed" curly maple top.
    '60 is the same as a '59, but with a slim-taper neck.

    I have big hands, and prefer fifties style necks. People with smaller hands would prefer the faster '60 style neck. I also believe the neck tenon is smaller on the '58, but I'm not sure. Neck angles may vary slightly also.
