That is one sweet guitar.
Well congrats on this! I've never been a big fan if 335s but this one could sure make me change my mind.
Beautiful. And a great deal. Thanks for the detailed write up.
Gorgeous guitar - if it plays half as nice as it looks, that’s a lifetime guitar. I love semi-hollow bodies as well. But I really don’t like “a bit of grit under my fingers”, so the Gibson’s and Epis with RW boards didn’t do it for me, despite their other wonderful qualities. So I ended up with an Ibanez with an ebony board and a neck shape that plays exactly how I like. Mine’s ugly though - a fake relic finish that allowed me to get the guitar for half price because evidently everyone else though they were ugly too. But it plays and sounds incredible so I just play it and try it to look at it too much.
Your’s is a winner in every level. Enjoy!
Daaammmmmnnnnnnn!!!! That is beautiful! Congratulations! And I love, LOVE all the pics! This is how a NGD should be done!
Congratulations, that's a real peach! I have a cherry ES-335 DOT reissue which is the nicest guitar I own but unfortunately I don't get to play it much these days. After seeing your pics I'm going to pull it out of it's case and give it a sound thrashing for an hour or so.
But now you have to change the pickguard on your Thinline because they're not quite a matched pair ;-)
Ha, I’m actually having creamtone make me a tort guard for the 335. Not totally sure if I’ll use it, but will be cool to try it out. Also making a tort truss rod cover as well.
Came across this video of the Memphis factory detailing their entire build process. That factory really was special. Sad to see it go. Glad I got one of the last ones made there.
Beautiful! That pic with the 335 and tele....mouth watering
Didn't they just sell the building? I thought that the factory is still there, just downsized a bit, but still in the same building.
I think they are moving to an entirely different part of Memphis. Anybody’s guess as to what that means for the process.
