    It's taken just over a year and two wrong purchasing moves. One was my own carelessness when checking a guitar before purchase and the other due to horrific quailty of a quarantine online order....but I think I've cracked it with this.

    2021 ES-335 in Figured Iced Tea. It's flawless, and plays as good as it looks.

    I still love my Tele' too. I'm not switching sides :)

    That 335 is a beauty! One piece top?

    What a looker! It's so gorgeous I think I'd be afraid to play it.

    All 335 have plywood tops, so its a ‚one piece veneer‘.

    I can't see any way that could be improved.
