How can i resist! Will put something together and get it on!
here's a song i just recorded using multiple layers of the 335, super duper, tube screamer and 69 fuzz. Check it out if anyone is interested
This one is a live jam from the other night with my band. Just recorded onto an iphone in the corner of the rehearsal room but wanted to let you guys to hear the super duper and 335 in a live setting too
My 1984 Dot reissue cherry
I've had mine since 1988 when I was in a band. These are old pix of it playing out, circa 1990. Coincidentally, the lead singer had the Ibanez Artist copy (AS80?), which was really nice. Same cherry color!
Vertical shot is me. Horizontal shot shows the Ibanez. My ES335 is hiding behind my leg. FYI, that's a '65 Pro Reverb I was playing through.
I am a newbee and wanted to post a pic of my es-335 and american deluxe tele. For me, these are two great guitars to own.
There is a fool or a small child..or worse.. loose on Ebay today bidding for the below headstock crack. This genius increased the bid from $1000 to $1401 (ah, why bother with smaller increments...it takes sooo much longer to WIN).
2009 Gibson ES-335 Custom Shop Dot Neck Reissue Semi Hollow Electric Guitar
Just got my '63 Block RI last week. A very nice guitar indeed. 2011 Nashville-made.
At the gig
Since it's an ES-335 thread and not a GIBSON ES-335 thread, here we go:
Here's my 1990 Aria Pro 2 TA65 with factory Bigsby, completely stock and original. It has a set-neck and the full (maple) sustain block through the body. The neck feels great (solid and smooth) and it plays lovely with low action and no buzzing anywhere on the pretty dark old school rosewood fretboard.
Unplugged it has an 'airy', but rich/warm resonance and a bright 'ring' to it despite the pretty heavy overall weight of the guitar. Always a good sign if it sounds fine unplugged.
The stock pickups to my suprise sound great the way they are and they're very well balanced together. The amplified tone is warm, clear and full with a nicely balanced, bright top end to it. Sounds great in every pickup position, clean or overdriven/distorted. For me it's the ultimate true vintage ES-335 tone. Would not ever sell or trade this one, not even for the 'real deal'. Not ever, as it's the best purchase I've done in my life regarding electric guitars. My 1987 Gibson Les Paul Standard is collecting dust ever since.
The only upgrade I may consider is changing the stock plastic nut for a Tusq nut, other than that I'll keep it stock.
drool. Cherry is such a beautiful finish
Will you give the guitar to me please?
That's a truly great looking 335.
I am in the club for sure!
I got a vintage sunburst dot ES-335 last fall. LOVE IT
Then, since I got a weekly gig, I bought a tele -- why? Cause I want a guitar to stay in tune for the length of a song!!!
I love my ES but she is my Ferrari and my tele is my Porsche.
Anyone out there have tuning solutions? I don't fret heavy and I can have it slip out of tune by the 2nd chorus. Just not a gigging guitar
Change the tuners to Grovers ,& lube the nut slots with graphite.
Can I play? Just picked this up (can't afford the real deal sadly) and it's fantastic!!
Got it used, I wonder if there is any way to tell (without dismantling) if the pickups have been changed. Sounds awesome at all settings on the knobs, wvey responsive. Beauty too, love the natural finish.....
Try tuning slowly up to pitch for now which is always best on Gibsons.
Likely a problem with the nut which is common.
A tech could fix that up easily and cheaply.
Before spending any money on tuners, as said before, take it to a good tech & ensure it is set up properly. He may recommend getting a new nut cut. Then if this doesn't work, invest in tuners. Good luck!
Thanks for the replies -- I will get the nut worked on my next set up and let you know how she does. I did have a Long and McQuade set up but am not sure it was terribly in depth
My all time favorite guitar design....but I just have not found the right one till now.....
It's a 2008 "Fat Neck". Lots of old school features. Plays and sounds amazing.
And the headstock....most Gibson pearl is pretty but not this nice....looks more like
Just bought the same Epi Dot used on Saturday from GC in Fairfax, VA. Same color and even has the case. Lotsa fun.
I wanted a 335 FOR SO LONGGGGG. Finally got it today! THey even made a signature model for me! The Memphis!
Memphis All-Gold 335.
Took awhile to get to Japan from the factory, so glad it didn't get destroyed in shipping!
My bud Steve and his custom-built.
