Got my 335 out today. Haven’t played it in 6 or 7 years but dang it brought back memories of just how dang great it sounded when I use to play out. Strings on it haven’t been changed on it since I last played it. It was still close in tune so I tuned it up and it plays and sounds heavenly with 7 yr old strings. It was like seeing an old friend I haven’t seen in ages. I just noticed that one of the tone control knobs is missing. I've had this guitar around 34 years.

Great pic, thanks!

When I read the subject I had a feeling that your post would be about needing another '335 to keep this first one company.. ahh, never mind :)

Beautiful man. I just recently built a 335, first one I've ever owned, and I love it. It's a very versatile guitar for sure! What's the year of yours?

It's bad the way we leave loved guitars in the case for years at a time. I'm bad about it that's for sure.
Glad you and the ES-335 got reacquainted with each other. Now find a knob and play it some more.
I've got an ES-330TDC purchased new in 1966, we've been together for a long time.
