A few years ago I got an ES-335 like I had many years ago but I never bonded with it. Sounds great, plays great but . . . Then a couple of weeks ago my friend Don came over with an ES-275 he got at the end of December. Double humbuckers but fully hollow and with the rounded cutout instead of the sharp one like on the ES-175. I played it and liked it a lot. A few days later it was gnawing at my mind and I saw they were still on sale by CME. So, It's supposed to be a floor model and thus used, but it looks untouched. The pickguard plastic is still on it. There isn't even a smudge. I'm very pleased.
