This rather renown photo is from a photoshoot by Annie Leibovitz. It's for a Louis Vuitton advertisement, where Keith Richards can be seen strumming his 1959 black ES 355 mono. An article on Gibson's official site says, "His black 1959 ES-355 has been used for live versions of “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “Oh No Not You Again,” “She’s So Cold,” “Little T&A” and others." (source: http://www2.gibson.com/News-Lifestyle/Features/en-us/keith-richards-0502-2011.aspx) The stock photo shows a newer model 355. The Keith Richards original one does not have a pickguard, and obviously differs since it's a vintage from 1959.more
