    Multiple layers of the cherry lacquer.

When the lacquer was new, red on red gives you red so the guitar had a nice even cherry sunburst all the way around. As the guitar faded, the 'single layer areas' faded faster and the 'multiple layer areas' stayed more red.

    I believe McCartney's Burst is marked as a 2nd, possibly because of the finish problem in the dark area.

    Funnily (not funny like the math breakdown) enough... That guitar came from less than 15 miles from my house. Tom Tarisi (last name sp. butchered I'm sure) had a store called "Guitar Haven" and I believe left-handed guitar shop also figured into the store name, on Backlick Road in Springfield, Virginia. My understanding is that Linda purchased the guitar from him.

    The lefty Les Pauls have caused a little confusion with serial numbers sometimes seemingly out of order. But my guess is that this guitar is late enough to have the fade resistant red. It seems the 1960 left handed Bursts were done at the same time. Maybe an order [or two?] came in and they made a few?

    Here's a question: Did reflector knobs appear before or after the cherry pigment paint?

    I remweber seeing a few lefty Les Paul's @ Scott Jennings shop in the late `80's & early `90's. I think he had Paul's sunburst before Paul bought it.

    I may not know Les Pauls like most of you, but I am pretty good at math:

    2012 - 1982 = 30 years.

    Time is really flying by...

    Longevity is the key to success.

    Oceantoad has it right.
    Double rings seemed to come in shortly after the first version reflector top knobs.

    So, then if there's reflectors, it should have a pigment cherry. I have a friend selling his '60, with pigment and regular bonnet knobs, and was wondering if they should have had reflectors or not.

    Even the range would be helpful, something like 0 74xx would help if the owner is willing.

    Re: Paul McCartney's Touring '60

    Should he only give the SN , or the range to those with serious intent to buy?

    JJBlair ,
    As you must know you are dealing with one of the top LP authorities on the planet, TM59.. imho.. send him a private email , keep it off the forum by all means.. my two cents..

    To recap, you are checking to date it (early or late) for yer friend by the pigment of the guitar?

    Never heard a male hit that high a note...not bad for 69.
    If you missed the performance Sunday, what a great song to close the show

    He continues to give us all his optimistic and hopeful for the future philosophy.

    The "Carry That Weight / The End" medley from the Grammy's just blew me and a million other people away. It was one of the most sublime musical experiences for me since 1969 and it continues to represent the Beatles legacy for me...

    Apologies for going off topic for a second, but that maple board 50's Strat second from left @ top row is a work of art. Obviously been played and loved. Any stab at a rough market value for such a piece nowadays? Sorry again to disrupt this fine thread.

    Oops. Forgot to respond to this a while back. 0-81xx

    It's uncirculated, and not in the registry, but a search through they registry shows that two of the bursts in the 0-8100 range have bonnets. The rest are reflectors. I wonder how that happened.

    BTW, I'll try and find out the story on Brian Ray's GT from the GRAMMYs. I've played Rusty's 335. It's such a nice guitar. I remember when he got it.

    It's very common to have the knobs replaced.
    I would expect any Burst in that number range to have reflectors.

    Thanks, Tom.

    BTW, just heard from Brian about the GT. He says it's a '57 he bought many years ago, when he was playing with Etta, and everybody from Keef, to Mick Taylor, to Jimmy Page to Hubert Sumlin played it while sitting in with the band. That's some pretty cool DNA left on that guitar!

    Re: Paul McCartney's Touring '60

    A "friend" asked Brian Ray if that TV Jr is his which
    Joe Walsh was playing the other night at the Grammys.
    Ron Wood was also playing a TV Jr on stage with Paul's band.
