    Well I guess you can rest comfortably Mike knowing that it's in good hands and safe and sound.

    that's true, but I'm sure, Mike would love it the other way round. Keef bought it from somebody and sold it to Mike at a good price. Now that would be mighty hot, wouldn't it?

    I have always loved Keiths 355. Shame they didn't do more than 3 in black, imo the best 355 colour. One hell of a cool looking guitar :thumb:

    I do think keith has had two of these.. theres a couple of pic's of the stones guitars from the 70's where there is a black 355, one of the pic's though you can see a varitone switch and a different vibrato bridge.

    Thanks Billy and yes Keith had a 1960's Black Es that he used [lyre tailpiece ,stereo, different knobs} the late 60's early 70's but it was not the same as the 1959 that he got in the mid 90's and loved.Thanks Mike B.

    Here are mine, at least the 2 125t's are mine. The 1955 es225 belongs to our drummer, he wants to trade it to me for my old Yamaha golf cart. The es125t on the left is a 1959 and looks like it has never been played, my wife bought it from the original owners widow for my birthday. The one on the right is a 63 I got years ago, sold to my sister around 1980 and bought back recently when she bought a 335. Sadly I don't think anyone famous has ever been close to any of these 3....except for me
