As said quite a few posts back the first one dopes look like a 92 reissue from the serial number and it does look like it has FEB.


Here's what the first one is...



The guitar in the OP has a Nashville bridge, Standard on the TRC, FEB(highly unlikely but possible) and Gibson TM490 pups.

The 92 59R(considered to be a reissue) has FEB, 57 Classic pickups, blank TRC, Abr-1 style bridge, black cavity covers.

When they started making reissues in 92 they had a model number 59R. They continued to make these through to 95. The 59R model was not shown in the 92 catalogue.

The 92 59R, 93 59R 57C and 57B were referred as reissued..pictuered below is the 93 catalogue.

OK well it looks like it has FEB, an ABR and a G2 (Terada 92) reissue serial number to me. I'm certainly no OBG expert & happy to be proved wrong but your post hasn't changed my mind.

I would bet the guitar will be back in 1 or 2 weeks with the usual excuse " last buyer was not willing to pay"...but if not somebody perhaps bought a very expensive OBG.
