    1958 es335 Question...

    Has anyone ever seen a '58 335 with a silkscreen logo, no crown inlay and neck binding?
    Is it possible one could leave the factory that way?

    I think you should show us a photograph of your latest stumble upon.

    Haven't seen one like that, but I'd say it's certainly possible. I've seen a factory black 59 345 with an early L5 inlay on the front, and a parallelogram on the back......so it's possible.

    Right, but why custom order a 335 with headstock cosmetics that would be on a student model guitar?
    I hope to know more soon

    Seems highly unlikely [to be real] to me.

    I assume you’re who I’ve been talking with about this? If not, that’s a weird coincidence.

    We may be thinking of the same guitar, but no it's not me you've been talking with.
    Do you have any photos you could share?

    I'm not positive, but I think it ended up being a headstock repair. Wasn't factory far as I know.
