Count me in as a member, just got this one this past Saturday. Gibson Memphis '58 VOS Burst.
What a beauty! Sure I’ve seen this shot on the 335 FB page.
I'm in here with a 2016 ES 335 TDC '63 reissue in 60s Cherry VOS finish. It played perfectly out of the box and I've never dared tweek it in the slightest.
New to the forum and just ran across this little 335 club. Here's my 2007 with p90's.
Incoming walnut ES-335!!!! So stoked! Always wanted one ever since I started playing guitar.
I’m in. Awesome guitar. It was good to go except I had to get rid of those plastic knobs. I’ve always thought those were strange.
Some actual photos of my newly acquired beauty. Plays and sounds glorious!
Polished up my satin model today, I like it!
I’m back in!
My Starfire IV is gone (narrow nut width).
It’s a 2001 model.
I’ve already put a String Butler on it, $50 well spent.
It stays in tune beautifully, and rings out, acoustically.
It will eventually get a long tortoise shell pickguard, graphite nut and locking tuners.
If that's a Nashville pretty sure I have the exact guitar, could be cousins!
My build date is Sept 2001.
Mines been a joy but it might be heading off to a friend for either his R6 goldtop or R8 burst.....
I put silver top knobs on, really juiced up the look, I'll try to post a pic if you're interested.
Enjoy, nice guitar very versatile.
I’d love to see it.
I’ve had a bunch of 335s over the years, and this one is the best sounding.
I generally prefer the bigger necks, but this one is really nice.
It’s previous owner(s) took good care of it.
I joined the 335 club for a while, then left it quickly. I couldn't bond with the guitar, now I have an ES-135 which is MUCH more to my liking.
'68 Sparkling Burgundy
Wow, what color is it now? Almost natural with a little tequila sunrise on the edges?
When Sparkling Burgundy ages/oxidizes it can turn gold-ish.
I've seen it a lot, though none looked as cool as this one!
Wow, mine's clean but your's is even cleaner!
It's seeing more playing time than my other Gibsons.
As @brookdalebill mentioned, when these fade due to UV exposure and general wear, they first turn sort of a burnt orange and eventually gold, which is what Gibson sprayed as the undercoat. Mine is getting pretty close to gold on top.
Here's a composite pic that I put together that shows how the back hasn't faded as much, but the neck is a mess.
A mess? That's stunning.
The phrase “a beautiful mess” seems appropriate here.
