    I'm sure another will come along in another few years. I only know of three black ones, although there are probably others under beds and in closets (McCartney's guitar player Rusty Anderson has one of them).

    I notice that the first 345 and second to last red 345 have long guards (ala 1959-1960) AND 1st fret inlays (ala 1961). That seems to be an interesting and mildly unusual variant. Neat-O. Is the first 345 missing it's 21st fret inlay? To quote the title of another LPF thread title: "Inlay Horror!"

    The statement about 3 Blacks was 1959-ES-355's there were 3 made in 1959,many more black ES's made other years and other models -335-345-etc.I was only referring to 1959-ES-355's in factory Black.Glad you got to play a great guitar black ES's are so cool looking.Sorry i thought the tl was thinline not trini lopes.Thanks Mike B.
