    Congratulations, you’re in for a treat!
    I might be wrong but according to link you shared you’re getting Deluxe, not Deluxe ‘58.
    To my knowledge all 58’s were made from Korina and painted natural. I have one with GT 90’s that I loooove.

    Your right! It just arrived. It's a Deluxe 90. But it's got Hummers.

    I'll post the spec card if any cares. The color says faded cherry SB, but it looks more like Heritage SB to me. Plays incredibly well.my vibrato has never sounded better. I'll spend more time with it over weekend, but I really like it. :aok

    same guitar - different lighting and a pick up swap ;)

    Always thought the hang tangs are are such a cool little touch. Found memory’s of Ron’s V to C neck carve. So comfy !

    Actually it came with a Tortoise shell pick guard as well....I'm definitely going to swap that out and make a few other minor changes. The play-ability of this guitar is off the charts. I thought my Tom Anderson Tele played well.........This guitar practically plays itself. I cant believe how good my vibrato sounds. Its effortless!

    One of the few thorn models I haven't had! His builds are always so immaculate.
