I have myself lusted after a 335. However, each time I play one I just don't like the feel of the guitar against my body. The same can be said of a Casino: I just don't like it. The neck can be great. People say that a Tele separates the men from the boys but I say the 335 does. (Yes, I am admitting I'm not man enough for a 335.). I don't get great tones from a 335. It reveals every flaw in my playing technique and ability. So I've ended my intention to own a 335. I may go for a Gretsch but I fear I will have the reaction in terms of feel. I was a committed Tele addict. In fact, I should have been committed to a psychiatric facility for all the money and time I spent chasing Telecasters. I have two custom shop Teles that are great guitars. Unfortunately, I've lost that loving feeling about both of them. I'm back to being a Strat guy. I still like my Teles but I don't love them. Perhaps in a year or two I'll rediscover their magic. BTW, my Teles are all me and I didn't mod a thing. I handpicked what I wanted from the Custom shop: color, frets, pickups, keys, radius, body wood. I'd never mod them myself. I have been tempted to have an experienced luthier put a humbucker in the neck position of my 63 NOS Tele.
