    Is a CS allowed through the door? This is my Gibson CS336, the Custom Shop version of the ES339 - same scaled-down body, different construction method. Mine also has after-market Bare Knuckle Mississippi Queen P90s.

    Wanted an ES for a long long time now and finally was able to pick one up for myself for Christmas. Here's the new Gibson ES-339 Studio...

    [​IMG]

    Was a floor model that came with the case and all case candy and looked it was brand new and never even played. Stoked to finally have one in the collection and especially when it was such a killer deal and not much more than a new Epiphone/Ibanez.

    I'm on a roll necro-ing these Owner's Club threads tonight, having recently taken pictures of the whole stable, so here is my ES-137!
    [​IMG]
    The Bigsby B5 is mounted on a Vibramate plate, and the bridge is a Tone Pros roller. I recently took "The Plunge" and completely rewired her and installed a set of Seymour Duncan Seth Lovers. Really fantastic (the pickups, not the experiencing of rewiring the ES. That wasn't very fantastic at all....).

    The middle one is probably the most awesome Les Paul I've played. Es-Les Paul with no F holes. MHS pickups. Light as a feather. Massive sound.

    Picked up this 2015 339 a few weeks ago and had my first gig with it last week. I swapped the BBs out for Lollars. This guitar is amazing and I love playing it. Also, it’s my first red guitar since I’d never thought of myself as a red guitar kind of guy. Oh well - I am now!

    Beautiful! A red Gibson ES-335 is one of the most iconic and recognizable guitars ever made. I own a 2018 model.

    Here’s my groovy 2001 black ES335.
    It’s very resonant, and plays beautifully.
    I eventually want to get a long, bound tortoise shell pickguard for it.
    It’s strung with flatwounds, and between the heavy-ish strings and the String Butler, it stays in tune very well.

    My "Birthday" guitar. Well, not exactly - but close. Another collector sold it to me for a ridiculously low price as a sort of birthday present - and I was MORE than happy to pay it!

    My 1952 Gibson Es-175 in near-mint condition. Yes, it has a jazz tone to die for!

    Ii forgot that Gibson hasn't made a good guitar since 1971 (or so the experts say), but I don't care. I couldn't help myself and shelled out the bucks for the couple of new ones... which I love, by the way. ;)

    And the one that got away - a 54 ES-175 (almost nothing original, but played like a dream!)

    After years of lust, I’m finally in the owners club! My 2018 335. Just doing my part to Make Gibson Great Again.

    Been trying to get this home since September, but needed to sell my Fano tc6 to make way for it! It’s a CS 59 VOS 335 with the chunky neck. What a player, I thought my old red 97 Nashville sounded good, but this is another league!
