I love 'em... But unfortuneately don't have one.

But I see some of you gents have more than one, so if you're feeling generous I'd be more than willing to take one (or two) off your hands. :thumb:

This guitar walked into a local music store.Everyone thought it was a Refin due to the odd color.I took a 1959 LP Custom i owned at the time down with me when i looked at the guitar.The colors were near exact so i bought the guitar knowing it was original.A 1595 Factory Black ES-355 Mono.Since i have been told Gibson did 3 Black and 2 White ES-355 in 1959.I later sold this guitar to Harvey M.in Ariz,who sold it in the mid 1990's to Keith Richards and the Stones.It became one of Keith's go to guitars and i can see why it sounds amazing.I sold it at the time to raise money for a burst.Thanks Mike B.
