    I've never been a big fan of Gibsons but I made an exception for this

    Nice. Is it semi or full hollow?

    It's a semi..as far as I can see it's a 335 with with a plainer finish and a backplate. I've allways wanted a 335 but not enough to pay for one....I got a great deal second hand on this one

    Q: 'Backplate' as access plate over a rear cavity? Is the cavity itself hollow or a routed wood cavity?

    There is something about them, of that there's no doubt. Hope you enjoy it for a long time.

    The ES 333 is a great guitar and they are priced nicely.

    You did well, I consider the ES-333 my favorite of the models for that back plate. Ever try and replace parts on a ES-335? That plate is worth it.

    I have more guitars than sense to be honest. It's the first Gibson I've ever bought because it's the first one I've enjoyed playing

    I hope you enjoy it, if not you may have very discriminating tastes indeed.
