    Just for fun, if this kind of topic is not ok for the forum sorry.

    I became a fan of black guitars in general, if you have a black archtop I wanna see it!

    Years ago I passed on a Black L-5C (I went home to sleep on it and when I went back the next day to buy it, she was gone)

    But I do have a Black Les Paul Studio (which has an arched top)

    Not mine, but I've always liked the Ibanez PM100BK model.

    1937 L50 turned into an ES-150 by Dutch luthier Daniël Slaman.

    This guitar is identical to the first 10 electric guitars ever produced by Gibson in 1936, as a demonstration batch of the ES-150s that were released in 1937. It is equipped with a Charlie Christian mic' from CC UK. Wide neck but very easy to play.
    And it sounds like this:

    I went to an audition with a black 335 dressed like you (minus the hat) and even though I aced their test sets, they never called me back.

    I wonder if the fact that it was a religious organization had anything to do with it? :-)

    I wear a lot of dark (Blue, black, green, grey) clothes. A GF once asked me to wash some of her clothes in my "delicate" wash, I explained I only have two loads, whites and everything else... she took her Victoria's Secret stuff home :-) Since then I threw away all of my whites and now only have an "everything" wash. Ah, the simple life.

    1996/1997 Lacey Premier Black Archtop Electric Guitar, Serial | Lot #85022 | Heritage Auctions

    Shameless promotion - great starting price, beautiful guitar built in the spirit of a vintage d'angelico by a noted master luthier, minty condition, ladder bracing, pickup rebuilt by Lindy Fralin, Mark Lacey was one of the luthiers selected to make a blue guitar in the Scott Chinery collection. I'm reducing my guitar collection and thought I would try Heritage Auctions. I am probably going to lose my shirt and my Lacey. But this very playable guitar needs to be in the hands of a player and not mostly stored in a display case (It is a piece of art, though).

    Here’s mine. Rodebald Hoyer all solid , with a bit of a dodgy restoration. It sounds wonderful, loud and balanced.

    My 1992 Herb Ellis ES-165 that I reluctantly sold. The four times I have sold an ES-175/ES-165, I have regretted it and missed the guitar. So now I won't sell any more, but they keep accumulating and I have six now.

    I owned this '68 175 for 30 years then sold it to a dealer friend. He sold it to the people who are selling it now. Great guitar.
