So I told brian that I thought thew 59 sound was a 59 les paul standard guitar because it is considered to by guitar afficiandos to be the finest guitar ever made. And he said. "Nope, that is not it"

This is like trying to ask Bruce Springsteen where Thunder Road is.
Him telling you isn't going to happen and it's the same with Brian.
I think it is best to leave the meanings of songs or album names as such to be interpreted by yourself personally. When a songwriter goes into too much detail about what a song means then it ruins it to some extent, especially if you have connected with it in a certain way is that is different from the exact meaning. That is my opnion on it.

And here's the relevant quote from Brian (Backpackrock.net, March 2009):

"I don't want to tell what the songs are about for me, because then people can't decide for themselves, which is why I write; it's for you to find your own meaning in. For me it's my story, for someone else it's theirs; if I tell exactly what it means, then it's only my story."

It's an interesting- and obviously now disproven- theory. I do think, as others have said, that songs mean more when you interpret them for yourself.

i like making the meanings personal to me. it's also nice that brian keeps them personal to him and doesn't have to explain everything to everyone.
