    That Tele is nothing to sneeze at, but that 335 blows me away. HNGD!

    Congrats on your fine new ES-335. I'd be proud to have that one in my collection of guitars. Enjoy that beauty.

    That’s awesome. And I see this right after starting a thread about borrowing one from a friend. This is really gonna cost me some money I don’t have at the moment.

    Beautiful 335! Nicest top I've seen on one. As per Gibson quality, my 2020 ES-339 is also flawless. Nashville has really stepped up to the QA challenge with their semi-hollows.

    Give in to the GAS and enjoy the hunt!

    I though I'd sealed the deal for considerably less with a new Epiphone Inspired by 335, which looked amazing. Sadly the fret work was the worst I've ever seen. Fret sprout everywhere and some lifting clean out of the fingerboard.

    At that point I decided to just get the real deal.

    Maybe move the output jack to the side but the front jack is the original design.

    If that guitar doesn't satisfy you I'd suggest you stop looking. Just going on looks alone you found one that beats 9 out of 10 Gibson figured tops coming out of their factory. Other that a structural failure, (neck, pocket, body, binding, head stock), I can see no valid reason to ever return that guitar. That's Gibson at their best! Love it and play it. Congratulations!

    I think you've summed it up perfectly. If the GAS doesn't stop with this one then their really is no hope for me.

    Nothing there to not like! Do you know if it came with Burstbucker pickups? Only asking because I bought a '21 LP on CL that had them and they are the best sounding humbuckers I've had the pleasure to play through.( been mostly a long time single coil clanker) Just beautiful clarity and not a hint of "mudbucker" syndrome. Very cool 335!
