    1981 ES335 Dot 59 Reissue Colours??

    Does anyone know what colours the 1981 dots were finished in?

    what solid colours did they do?

    Blonde, red, tobacco sunburst, cherry sunburst (rare) and black. The red is pretty much solid-not like the usual red 335's. I've never seen a black 81 but I think they exist-I've had two black 82's.

    Cherry Sunburst was not a regular production color for the Dots.

    There was a very short, "special" run of VCS (Vintage Cherry Sunburst) Dots in late '82, but those had four-digit serial numbers and a Custom Shop Edition decal.
