Greetings from Toronto!

My incredible wife surprised me on my Birthday with a 1958 335 Capri!!!!

Serial number 2V159

I know it is in the Register on the other Ric site, and was in the UK but now it is just north of Toronto...

I have changed out the Kauffman for an Accent...

I did reach out to a previous owner on Facebook but have not heard back (maybe you'll answer here?) I can't find any info on what this might be...early '58? The triple dot inlay throws me off the trail pretty quick!

Just curious if anyone has any info on it.....

Any help would be greatly appreciated

It could be a '59 model, according to serial number. Never seen a dot inlay scheme like that, but Roger Rossmeisl was working there at that time and had most of the input with design. Great guitar...cheers!
