Trying to determine how many were possibly produced in Ebony finish, I assume due to lack of internet and periodical information it would be the rarest custom color done in the 67-69 timeframe...

I haven't found any shipping totals either. The only things I've found were these:

On this site (http://opporknockity.../search?q=trini), there's a comment that there were 12 produced in Pelham Blue, according to "folklore". That may be correct, but who knows.

Also, Duchossoir's book states that there were some produced in "metallic red" (he may have meant "burgundy") in addition to the black.

It doesn't break them down by colour, but the Vintage Guitar site shows the following shipping totals for both Trini Lopez models. As can be seen, the 335 based thinline model far outsold the thick body Custom version
