I realize that this is the telecaster guitar forum but lately there has been a lot of interest in Gibson ES-335 and similar guitars. There is a long running thread asking why they are so expensive - I have built two in that style and posted a couple of pictures of the insides - within a few days there were 50 likes so I know there is some interest in that. I'm not currently building one but I did take a lot of pictures of the two that I have built and can easily put together a build thread showing what goes on inside, at least when an amateur tries to duplicate it. Normally I would do a build thread at the DIY subforum but it seems to fit the Other Guitar category, lets see what happens. First, my disclaimer. I am an hobby guitar builder working in my garage. I am not a "luthier", I have too much respect for the people who I think have earned that title, call me a "luthier in training". I don't sell guitars, I make them for myself, friends and family. Mostly I build acoustics but I enjoy exploring new and different instruments, I rarely build the same thing twice. Even the two 335's are different, I might go into that if I remember. Second part of the disclaimer is that I am not trying to clone a Gibson ES335(tm). These were built "in the style" of a Gibson guitar but for a variety of reasons there will be differences. Some because of the way I work, some because I intentionally change things (head shape, inlays, stuff like that) so its obviously NOT a Gibson. So please do not take this as an explanation of how Gibson builds their guitars.
