"Reissue"?

Recommended Posts

How do we know what "reissue" means?

 

* Is "reissue" a casual term to mean any discontinued model that is revived, whether to original specs, or as an apporixamation, or as an upgrade?

 

* Do manufacturers control the use and meaning?

 

* Are there criteria in a formal definition set by some official sanctioning group?

Yeah, that's about how it seems to me, Marvar.

 

Funny, a guy once said the Squier Duo-Sonic reissue of Fender's 1959 Duo-Sonic should not be called a reissue...and he was not from a manufacturer's marketing department.
