So the real qustion is should/can I give it a burst name? Or sould it ever be known as the Conti Burst?
It is your guitar now. Do what you want. If it were mine, I would give it a new name. But Conti will always be associated to it. Do our members have any suggestions??

Ben, I read somewhere that it was re necked in the 70's with a NOS 50's neck. If that is the case do you know the dimensions and how does it feel compared to your new 57?

It’s very similar. Just a tiny thicker. But the 57 was probably reneck with a transition neck. It’s on the thinner 59/early 60 specs of what I’ve seen in BoB measures.

Wow, the Sexy Hexy Burst. I remember the debates over this guitar. Very educational to me and others, with some great detective work especially by Eric.


Congrats, Ben. You must be so psyched.

thanks. I am really psyched. I wasnt planning nor dreaming to get a 59. but then everything came kind of together. With every stories you hear I was very skeptical on buying a vintage piece like that. I actually got the 57 because I knew it went through Eric's hands lol. And then bam! It happened again.

Im so loving it. Its got every bit I would have thought a real 59 would be....
