I have an 85 es335 dot neck I bought from a friend 30 years ago
That's is purdy!
Well, Charlie, as soon as I saw the title, I really did wonder “another fugging guitar, Charlie? Seriously?!?”
It is a beauty, though.
Still a 335 though?
I’ve been looking at ES330s lately. P90s.
I quite like those - it gets the weight down and I can't consistently hear a massive difference. I have a heavily modded '71 ES320 with the short block and it's a lot of fun, not much heavier than a 330.
Very nice, congrats
Just one photo? How could you? That's a thing of beauty and deserves to be show off as much as possible.
Oh good lord
Looks like it’s mint. Wow. Congratulations.
Very nice! Interested to know about the neck profile and nut width. I have two 335's which I adore, but would love to have a birth year example (75 for me). Also need more pics of that beauty!
I have a really nice Epi Sorrento that scratches that itch. And an ES225, alas with 1 pickup.
I've had 2 ES330s and couldn't bond with either, but they were both 68/69 longnecks.
I've never tried an earlier one, but I mean to.
60s stuff. Skinny neck, although I've seen skinnier. This one has a bit of heft.
1 9/16" nut
Small, but I'm fine with small necks.
The previous owner wasnt, and he was very up-front about the neck size.
I'd give my left nut for that and I crap you negative!
Nice find. Beautiful guitar. I have been looking for a 335 for some time now and I can’t seem to find anything I love. I’m seriously thinking about a heritage 535. The search continues. Good luck with her.
As was said before, more pics please!!
I’ve got some 73 T tops and agree they are good.
No bucklerash, no worming.
No wear on the neck.
One little dink on the end of the headstock. You know the one
A little checking.
Just a few checks, all of them very long.
It reminds me of the way poly checks.
I've heard about plasticizers in lacquer, and I'd bet the long cracks are evidence of it.
This one flies in the face of the notion that the good ones got played and the lesser ones got put away.
This one has it all.
Many years ago, around 1977, when the Norlin quality dip was being noticed, an old luthier showed me how he would hold a Gibson neck up to the light, and if it made a crisp, straight line down the neck, he knew it was a guitar that a craftsman had put some extra effort into in order to make it right.
I've never heard that anywhere else, but I've found it to be true.
That’s a time machine - like new!
My 73 LPC has little to no checking, but then it’s been a case queen 99% of it’s life.
Tonight we ride.
