My dear friend Scott has a first year red 339, it sounds and looks great, stays in tune beautifully, and he loves it. It just looks weird. Specifically, the horns or ears are too small. I'll totally cop to being into a guitar's look. "My" solution would be a 1-2 inch reduction in the lower section's diameter. I'd keep the "Mickey Mouse" ears like original, pre 1964 335s.
