    Rick, Thanks.
    These were a run of 100 in 2009 to showcase the 5909 pickups.
    Based on a doublecut McCarty, they had private stock quilted tops, east indian rosewood necks and fretboards, 5909 pickups with a push/pull tone knob and a satin nitro finish.
    A couple colors available, Black Gold, Black Slate, Faded Blue Jean and red tiger (which I have never seen a red tiger one).

    IIRC, there was a limited edition run 2008 1957/2008 run of 100 and also another limited run in 2010 of the 53/10's

    I'm sure some of the other members can fill in more of the details.

    I found a link to more info

    Upon further investigation (and drooling)... this thing is essentially like a "Paul's 100" guitar but with a 25" scale rosewood neck! Killer. (Fixed vs. adjustable stoptail bridge being the only other [insignificant] difference.)

    Edit: Oh, sorry... and the obvious birds vs. dirty moon inlays. But still, should probably be regarded as a close surrogate to the Dirty 100.

    I agree. As you said, I think a couple other minor differences. Cocobolo headstock veneer and ebony buttons. Also paisley case.
    Wouldn't mind finding a dirty 100 available sometime. :cool:
