I know there are a crap ton of posts asking for es335 alternatives, and I hate to create another one that appears similar. However I must ask, since this is probably the best and most active guitar forum I've seen, what people here think about guitars like Washburn hb35 and hamer echotones in terms of similarities to a es-335. I could definitely in theory save up for say a used es 333, but I'm in college so.....that might take forever. The main reason I feel the need to ask is because besides the ibanez as73 I believe, I haven't found a budget semi-hollow with the same woods w/ mahogany necks. Not sure if it changes much but any opinions are appreciated. Not really searching for the cheapest way out. Just wondering if a small change like that might affect a lot.
