Default What year is this Burton?

Picked up an older Burton off CL for an upcoming trip and just trying to find out a little about it as I have looked all over the web and can't seem to find it.
Its a Burton Custon 59, pretty much all white top deck with an orange sunset on the tail. The bottom is pretty much a large sunset pic.
I got it for the price of a few days rental and only get to go snowboarding for a week a year, so I think it should fill my needs. Thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks that's it. Little older than I thought, but I guess that means it's in good shape...oh well.
I am sure technology has progressed many times over since this board was made, but i doubt at my level and what i am using it for that i could tell. Like I said after a trip or two it's paid for and I am having fun fixing up the few dings until I can use it....

BTW you responded to my first post about the 154 LTD that I had bought. I believe you pointed out that me being almost 195lbs the LTD would be a little short, so I started looking at CL again. I found this for about $20 more and got my $ back outta the LTD to a friend. I don't know a lot about snowboards, but the difference in quality was ptretty evident to me. Do you think that was the right decision or are the newer lower end boards better than the older quality ones?
Another thing was I hated the damn "made in china" stamped on top of that LTD. Like they were proud of it or something...

definitely a better board for your size, and will handle better at speeds.... newer boards will be lighter, have more snap to them - thats about it.. go ride it!

I have a '97 Burton Custom 155 that still rides absolutely fine. If you have $50 to spare, take it to a good shop for a base grind/hotwax/edge sharpening and you'll be having a great time on it. If you only have $20 to spare, take it for just a wax and a sharpening.

If when you start bombing runs and railing carves you feel like it's a little unstable or it's chattering, then it might be time for you to consider an upgrade from that custom. Until then, that thing should be plenty of board for anyone.

and actually, my '97 custom 155 is as light or lighter than a lot of boards i've picked up lately. it's ridiculously light.
