    hmmm.....What frills would I need if the guitar has 57/08s? I see that there is no neck binding, but there is really nothing else that I notice.

    Better looking (artist grade) top, neck binding, etc. those are the features that add more cost.
    For people who don't need all those fancy features, the Stripped 58 is a great guitar for less money.

    It still doesn't look very stripped. Still has a 10 top or close to it. Still has birds. The old CE's were no frills. On some of these it's hard to tell them from the bling laiden versions.

    It was designed to be a "no-frills" SC-58. I think it was a limited run around the time of Experience 11 or 12 and was popular enough to keep making.

    Genuine MOP inlays, an inlaid signature/rosewood headstock fascia and a paisley case are the other 'extras.'

    The original 'Stripped' 58 limited run had no 10-tops, but when they made it a proper production guitar the 10-tops were an option.

    Oddly, the original limited run had birds as standard too, but again when it was added to the core catalogue suddenly dots were standard and birds were an upcharge. One would have thought that to be fully 'stripped' the dots would have been the way forward in the first place...

    IMO the tops on the original limited run tended to be 'better' than the non-10 tops on the next run. Subjective and conjectural of course, but from what I've seen that's how it is.

    Great guitar though, truly.

    Thanks. I couldn't tell the difference. I just got a CU 24 that isn't a 10 top, but the top looks awesome. I was just reading an article about guitars that are "too nice". Some of these guitars can be so nice you are afraid to play them! So, I can live with a "Stripped" version I guess.

    Stripped 58 means a fantastic guitar at a reasonable price.
