"Uncirculated* in this case simply means that it wasn't sold and resold a lot, and that means pretty much nothing at all.
It's been refretted, and to my mind it really doesn't matter whether the wear has come from one person or from a few.

I've been to that shop a few times. Any guitarist who's passing through CPH heads there. The guy has some awesome vintage gear, loads of it, and he charges top coin.

Would be great to hear a tone report. Also happy/excited to see another burst that hasn't appeared in burstserial appear, but other than that, doesn't excited me much.

Yep, uncirculated to me is referencing Coin Collecting; means the coin was never used, or, in circulation.

I suppose it could be used to describe an unused guitar; never heard that term with re: to guitars. Suppose there is always a first time.

I would just refer to it as a single-owner guitar, being that it has had a refret it is not "un-used". Uncirculated generally infers mint condition. Despite that, it is a nice guitar for sure.

This illustrates something I have found, that in the 0900 serial range, the aniline they used turns brown as it fades. I think there's another range where it does that also. They must have changed suppliers for that run.

That is a nice top color.

I have always been a little perplexed why Gibson called my 1989 Standard "Vintage Burst"(2 color golden brown burst), as all the originals i've seen in pics over the years don't even come close to a golden Brown like it ...except this '59 example.I guess there were a few after all.

Beautiful '59 burst!
