I was curious earlier this evening about a marking that reads 5909 ME in the neck pickup cavity of my 59/09 Limited and wanted to know if the this run was ever considered a part of the Modern Eagle family? Or perhaps the ME means something different all together, I'm open for enlightenment. Here's the marking...

Interesting. I'd check mine, but I stupidly traded it to Brent.

Very cool! You've piqued my interest.... I'll need to check mine this weekend :)

Could be they hadn't come up with an official name yet. Maybe a ME name was being kicked around. That I could see.

For me the 59/09 was a perfect ME1.1........ You lost the BRW but gained a Private Stock quilt top and the 59/09s.

It wouldn't surprise me if someone had not had similar thoughts at the factory??

agree!
and if it has a glossy finish it has another plus for me.
