335 is cool, but 339 is cooler.
Love my 2001 Dot 335 I picked up in a pawn shop for $150 bucks... it just rocks all those sounds I’ve been digging now. (I’ve watched Echo in the Canyon a lot recently) wish I could afford a Richenbacher (sp)
Correct, sold mine (epi) last year
I have a dot studio and a sheritan , the dot is the only totally blues sounding guitar i ever played , who ever set this guitar up I want to marry them
I recently got a beautiful new heritage h535. Love it. Search over. Now I’m working on a 72 thinline assembly.
I (somehow) need to get another Les Paul Signature before I die! ( not that that's happening soon, I hope!)
Like every thing else, they are not for everybody. I do like the tones, but on a recent shopping trip I picked a Sheraton ll over the 335, based on that same quality. The Epi had splittable ProBuckers which absolutely blew me away, not to mention that I saved more than a few bucks.
I had a drop dead gorgeous 339. Could never bond with it so I sold it. Picked up a cosmetically challenged ES-335 Studio with a repaired headstock. Aside from it weighing a tonne I love it ... will likely never part with it.
I want to find a pawn shop with a $150 ES-335!
Great looking LP! Wasn't the 335 created in part because too many jazz and blues wouldn't accept the solid body Les Paul? It does seem like their owners are in two very different camps. (I love my LPs; I haven't had a huge desire to own a 335.)
Semis are a great platform. Super versatile.
Almost as versatile as a Tele.
But you can’t hit a drunk with one and it stay in tune.
335 just feels too big on me. Ok for Hulk.
I posted this recently in another thread - the only thing that matters is whether it inspires you.
I love the 335s I have held. I like the wide body, I love the tone that to me is SG-like.
I have a nice Gibson SG and a pretty good Les Paul Custom, so very likely the only Gibson guitar I would buy at this point is a 335. Unless I dropped a bit more and got a hollow-body like a 175, which is a possibility if I got serious about it. Or maybe a Korina Explorer. Or a Firebird. Alright, nevermind.
i thought i really wanted this style of guitar, then i bought a dot, then i got disinterested.
Maybe a Heritage 535 instead.
also these things are feedback monsters.
Sensitive topic...I signed the paperwork to sell my cherry red 335 yesterday.
I think they’re fabulous. Great jazz and rock tones, not hard to coax some twang from, looks great in all settings. I have neck and shoulder trouble that normal weight guitars make worse, otherwise I never would have sold it.
Whats the story on this?
