So you're all saying this won't just buff out ?
That used to get done to old Kays, Harmony Rockets and the other similar derivatives pretty often.
You'd see it done all the time on eBay.
Then, out of nowhere, the prices for those old Harmonies and Kays skyrocketed to 10 times what they were before.
In a matter of, maybe 6 months or so, like an almost overnight thing.
If you whacked the back of a $100.00 old guitar, who really cares?
Then, almost overnight, that guitar became worth upwards of $600.00 to maybe $1k.
Then, some people had misgivings of their dirty deeds done on the cheap, when the cheap weren't so cheap no mo'.
For sale 335 in excellent condition with professional upgrades. I have not included actual photos because I screwed up my camera trying to upgrade it, but it looks just like this new one. All sales final and no return.
I’ve been tempted to do the same thing while working on my 335, but better...
you always make the insides so hard to get to.... we need cutouts everywhere!
In the realm of stupid that is a distant second to the 58 Les Paul decorated by a ten year old with a wood burning tool.
The worst and most expensive "mod" ever.
Also check out James Taylor's first guitar at the Rock and Roll HOF that was painted blue by his brother. It looks like he painted it with house paint.
But how much is he asking?
Preachers always ask the big questions.
Nah, that's a mojo bypass filter.
If that's a real 335 the guy should be slapped.
I bought a harness for a Gretsch Chet Atkins from TV Jones, and they included the tubing.
Still took me over 6 hours to get everything situated. Not doing that again.
Gibson granted your wish with the ES-333. It had a trap door in the back behind the controls.
Is that Buck Owens ?
I have to suppose that Gibson wasn't concerned about the possibility of failure where their products were concerned nor did it matter to them how difficult repairs might be. Top of the line flagship guitars could not be aesthetically marred by something as ugly as a backplate if there were any other way to get the job done. Yeah, but...
If you're gonna do it, do it with class.
Actually, at least two problems solved.
Another classic “hold my beer while I try sumpin..” moment.
This is why I laugh when folks suggest that anyone can work on their guitars. “A man’s gots to know his limitations!”
That one actually hurts
The only thing is, even though I have complete access (from the factory) there's nothing I want to change and being that it's a quality instrument nothing has broke yet. Easy to clean the electronics though.
