It has not been easy, especially when I could have easily bought it 1 day before instead I dragged my feet and took a couple of days to make the final decision and pull the trigger.

It reminds me of the song title " It Serves You Right to Suffer" [biggrin]

So I went to a Chinese restaurant here in town and the fortune in my cookie reads: A small lucky package is on its way to you soon" just when I was getting over having to wait for my guitar...

I know this is not a "Lester", but I think you will enjoy the eye-candy.

Gibson Custom Shop 1965 Firebird VII Reissue in "Pelham Blue" (I told them to put chrome hardware on it instead of the gold and it has paid off well)

This 2004 R7 was mine once upon a time. I love the spiffy blacktop, but man, the neck on this thing was twice as thick as it should be, IMO. Despite the huge neck, it weighed well under 9 pounds. It was almost worth the price just for the privilege of staring at it.

I've just recently acquired a 'new' 2009 57 historic goldtop which I'm loving.

I tried out a 58 as well but although it sounded every bit as good the top was just a bit too plain for my liking and the dye had leached into the binding of the neck in a very nasty looking way. So I passed on that one and got the goldtop instead - and saved myself a few hundred dollars at the same time!

Looking at all these nice 59's in this thread can someone explain to me how flames in the so-called 'bookmatched' tops hardly ever match up?

I'd have thought that, if these are made by splitting a piece of maple down the middle and then opening them up as you would a book, the grain would line up along the joint. But that doesn't seem to be the case. And I think that would bug me if I'd paid top dollar for a guitar like that. There are a couple of photos here where the flames almost match up on either side of the joint but most seem not to do that.

Is there some reason for this? I know that every piece of timber will be different but, if any given top is made from one piece of maple then I'd expect the grain patterns to line up.....

You may have noticed the tops aren't flat. After bookmatching the top is carved, removing some material, which results in the slight mismatch you see. It's always been the case and is 100% historically accurate. I don't tend to like the very symmetrical ones myself.
I'm not drunk, you're blurry.

I know the tops are carved but the bookmatching along the centreline should have the grain pattern matching up if it's one piece of timber split down the middle. The carving at this point (which should be minimal if anything and would probably only be sanding rather than carving) shouldn't have any impact on that.

I know it's historically correct but I just can't work out how the grain patterns never seem to match up. It doesn't make any sense unless the sanding process removes so much material that the initial pattern is lost as sawdust.
