    Reinhart, mine certainly has faded a lot, nut its fair to say colours are complex. deep reds on the edge, very little straight black. hard to describe but the look is fantastic.

    Thanks Mike. Yes, all still with me. I think of it more as caretaking than ownership. Everything pictured is 1959. I have a few more I will add from other years.

    Here's my factory blonde 1964 lefty and a shot of my '63 reissue being completed at Historic Makeovers. I'll have a gigging guitar that looks and plays like the real thing.

    I was holding back for you vintage guys, but that doesn't matter here anymore. Here are a couple of crappy camera shots after some upgrades:





    EDIT: Better camera shot (just cropped...no saturation or color/contrast adjustments), but washed out in a light area:



    Love mine! 2013 50th Anniversary 1963 (looks like a '65 to me) ES-335.

    Love all of yours too!

    In numerical order. I apologize for the large photos.

    Thank you, Gary!

    The better covers and knobs help. I put a better pic up there on that post but it was a little washed out in one corner. Cameras freak out at that red color. One day I need to find the right lighting and angle to do a proper job. I'll do that when all the upgrades are in place...but thanks again.
