I realized the same thing when I kept searching for THE ES-335. It just didn't feel right. The same with the bigger body Gretsch models. Your eyes and your "want' say yes but... you come to your senses. I think everyone idealizes various guitars. I know I wanted one of each in my collection: Fender, Gibson, Gretsch, Rickenbacker, etc. I realized that it's a fools errand. Buy and stick with what you like. The rest of your "collection" will collect dust.
