Commenting without reading the rest of the thread. I have been gassing for a ES-335 on and off form many many years right now, but have come to the conclusion that the standard memphis versions are extremely uninspiring and bland. The only one out of menphis that I liked was the Rusty Anderson 59ri some five years back. The CS stuff on the other hand can be very tasty tho and can sound absolutely stellar. If you really want that 335 then buy that custom shop 61ri with the thin neck you like.
