    Day-um! That is really a beautiful 335, I really like the lightburst and the figured wood is tasteful and not overdone. Bravo! :)

    Man, a triburst 335 makes my pants tight. But I do love my plain ol' 2001 cherry mama. She's an awesome guitar.

    Although I need to take a better picture of her!

    I was looking for the Nash Club, & realised I hadn't posted a pic of my 335 yet. Got it in February, one previous owner. It's taken 6 months & a few trips to the shop for me to really come to terms with it, but I'm starting to love it!

    Here's my entry to the club.

    The Epi Dot is really nice. I think you have to look around to find the right one though.

    Only complaint about it is the stock pups only sound good on "10" and even then its not great.

    Thinking a pup swap may be in order. Perhaps P-94s? That would leave me with the Tele, the LP and a P-90 axe. Sonic ground covered!

    mmmmm....

    I've loved my Dot for 12 years but planning on putting in p-94s soon. I usually play with a wah left in the treble position to get it to sound right.

    I don't own a 335, but it's the one Gibson I would choose if asked. Lp, sg, are all great, don't get me wrong. Interesting how tastes go... Does being a tele owner mean you tend to like 335s?

    A 335 is a great compliment to a Tele. Lots of Tele owners have one.

    Solly, I remember when you first posted that thing, thinking how cool it was. Interested to know what you think of it now you've had it a while. I'm imagining it to be appallingly heavy?

    Seems like that to me.

    I have LPs, Strat, Teles, and 335s.
    I've also had many of these throughout my life and including quite a few SGs.

    The two that stand out and are the most pleasing to play due to what I get out of them are the Tele & the 335.

    I still love it, the burstbucker 1&2's sound great. It is an anchor though, over 9lbs but i play mostly while sitting so the weight really isnt an issue for me.

    It's an '08 model as far as I know and it sounds very nice indeed! Looks nice too, although my photography skills possibly don't do it the justice it deserves.

    Great club, the ES-335 Owners Club.

    A fine collection of photos from various owners showing what is without doubt one of the Gibson family's most iconic models. Eye candy at its best.

    Please allow me to add a couple of photos of my own ....

    ...all wonderful guitars. ;)
