It's a happy day, it's a 2014 ES-339. Wish me luck! I put the tip of my toe in the photo for you fetishists out there I am very, very far out of my element with this guitar, but I think I'll learn. I left it unopened for about 5 hours today, I didn't want any problems with the finish, and there weren't. There is more relief than I like, the frets are too close together and the neck feels short, compared to my Telcaster above. I don't find any flaws with it so far, nothing but honest wear and very little of that. I'll get it in a bright light soon and go over it. Very little fret wear. The neck has some thickness to it, and the guitar is light and resonates like crazy, it's very alive-feeling. It is surprisingly compact, very comfortable so far. I have a question about the neck pickup, is it supposed to tilt forward that much? I provided a photo of it, below. The sound - chunky, growly, sparkly, quite a good thump when I want! All the positions sound great, what I expect to hear but also SO different and in a good way. The volume pots are basically off after 7 or 6 on the dial, I'll have to figure that out. I'm going to leave it as-is and just get used to what it does for a while. I'm definitely in a honeymoon phase.
