I've always heard and seen a very dark brown and not black, so that sounds right to me.

why ......... 'always purplish brown on a 3 tone sunburst?'.......beauty, or colour tone is in the eye of the beholder

I cannot see any purple in my 3x burst 70 Tele,.......I have seen earlier Strats with ......what I could consider a purplish blend??

Not really an apples to apples comparison, not a tele, no side binding, etc, but here’s the side color on my ‘62 electric mandolin with a three color sunburst.
