... and the second guitarist in the band brings a 1964 Gibson 335...
That's okay...........you brought a tele and teles are bad@$$. As long as you've got the chops, your bandmate won't steal your thunder.
Wouldn't bother me in the slightest, I'd rather have the tele.
...or you could sell that 335 and buy a boatload of Teles.
it says a Lot that the other guitarist needs to bring the '64 to hang w/ you & yr partscaster...
Thx for the smile

I love my partscasters, wouldn't trade either one for that 335
I'm with you. My 2 partscasters I have kept, and the best one in particular, would slay any custom shop guitar for tone and playability. Vintage wouldn't have a chance although it would have the attention of most people. I understand that. I used to be a vintage whore myself.
I'd trade in a heartbeat!.....I can always build another partscaster, exactly like I currently play. I'm not likely to be able to ever afford a '64 335.
Just make sure that guy remains the "second" guitarist and doesn't let that 335 trigger an "ascending to first guitarist" attitude in his mind.
Hehe.. It's actually a 335 once owned by the guitarist who used to play with the Moody Blues.. My tele ain't bad either though... nor the Pro Junior, which I'm still testing, second gig!
I have a friend who traded 7 of his guitars, all top quality, for a 66 Gibson 335 a few years back. He's a very happy guy now !!
All you have to do is sound better than he does. Don’t be intimidated by a guitar, maybe a much better player, but not a guitar. I would take on any 335 with either of my partscaster teles!! Now, if Larry Carlton was holding it....
"That guy over there looks pretty shady. Better watch your guitar. I'm glad I brought my cheapo."
My first partscaster is a reliced Esquire and it come together so easily it almost put itself together. It set up real quickly and it is a dream to play. I wouldn't trade it for a truckload of ES335s.
Just because it’s old doesn’t mean it sounds great or plays better!
(Still want it, though!)
Lots of pros play partscasters, Keef, gilmour, Clapton, ain’t nuthin to be ashamed of.

That old Gibson is backwards and totally worthless .
Let's see... Broadcaster/Telecaster introduced in 1949, ES335 introduced in 1958, both iconic, wildly popular guitars that can be used for just about any style of music, and 50s and 60s examples of both sell for many more thousands of dollars than I can scratch up. Methinks otterhound is applying intermittent traction to our collective bipedal limbs.
A 335 like this is a real piece of history. That´s why I would like it. Soundwise not every old guitar really sounds good and there are a lot of partscasters outside that will beat them soundwise but not with the included history or story of such an old guitar.
I have both. I feel good about both. They are to me the two most useful, most versatile of the many electrics I love to play. Even there, it's tele for the win.
