Gorgeous - that gets my vote for coolest ES-335 ever. I'll bet it would even make Keef green wif envy.
Well now... the question should not be whether or not the finish is original - the question IS > would I own a refinished guitar (?)
- it's ok moon - I respect you - I still gotta start my 68 GT Thread in your honor... someday I hope to get the time...
The finish is as Virgin as Mother Mary herself
I know - I'm new at this game (really ?), but in time you guy's will learn to trust in me...
Oh, and thank you for chiming in # 12 Banker - always enjoy all your words of wisdom
How does she sound Lary?
Just looking at this one again.
What a guitar! I'm not generally a fan of black, but this is something else!
The ABR is nice and low too, so I presume the neck angle is good. Out of interest, is there any white in the PU's if you've looked? Love the black knobs, are they original to the guitar? Looks better with no white in the f-holes too....and the colour match between body and headstock is so cool.
A genuinely once in a lifetime guitar.....she's a keeper!
You just described my ideal guitar. And beautifully at that! :hmmIt sounds great !
But it's the RESPONSE that is so crazy - hard to put in words but I'll try... no other guitar I have ever played (1000's) can respond like a Sax like this one can (I don't have a clue how to play the Sax, but being a big fan of the instrument and having listened to so many great players, I had always wished to get that response from a guitar - you know what I mean ?)... truly unbelievable dimension of tone, so dynamic, the resonance and sustain, so responsive, this thing BREATHS from sleeping soft to fire breathing dragon - all depending on how you touch her - this thing is ALIVE - absolutely unbelievable... GREAT set of PAF's for sure and thanks to such great engineering / design of a guitar... IMHO these late 50's ES-335's are the greatest guitars ever made. And this ones Black...
Here’s the Killer > you simply just would not believe how good the Neck feels...
