Isn't the red truss rod cover indicative of a '58?

Not sure on that. I briefly had a Dyna (IIRC) '57 with the red trc and an inlaid Jet-style headstock. I've seen at least one with some kind of red insert in the G tailpiece; just checked, seems to be one like that in Ed's book.

Does it look to anyone else that a sizeable area of the finish on the back was scraped off and then painted?

It does now. I think you're right.

The black finish on the one I had was paper thin and flaking off. The ivory seemed standard thickness.

Those 3/4 scale guitars make me look fatter than I really am.

But I do like them old babies.

I got a friend that wants to get rid of his.

Could it be belt buckle rash that has been painted?

He's taking offers, but I think he was going to put it on reverb. Don't know if he did, though.
