Thanks jb, this was a real eye opener and very well done by Mitch and Dustin. Love this stuff.

I saw this one 'starring' Dave Cobb and @matkoehler upon release... Even with 86k views, I think it wasn't really a big item of discussion here (or a lot of other places).

And although Mat touches upon re-working the ES line here and in articles, I still see lots of questions and misunderstanding on the inter-webz! Especially about scanning and renewing the shapes.


Dave also drops some knowledge in the most pithy of ways.

BTW Dave was also featured in this 'The Scene' with Mark Agnesi as Maestro-Overlord of Nashville's RCA Studio A, the House That Chet Built. Also a good watch.


He loves his new Trini as much as any vintage guitar!

Yes the 'web' can be a problem when folks don't understand things.........they're social media forums after all and can get a little crazy:LOL:

Mine is a 2018 Traditional in Antique Sunset Burst. Of course I'd love to have some of the custom shop beauties I've seen on this thread, but this guitar grows on me everyday. It plays and sounds magnificent. I started off with a real 59 dot neck in 1966 and have tried to find a replacement ever since I sold it in 1970. I've been through at least 8 Es 335s in that time and this is the only one that gets close in feel and sound.

Nickel saddles on it too.
Right, new saddles, frets and nut. I am considering a couple other minor changes. It has a hotter neck pickup wind of 8.0k and bridge 7.5k. I wouldn't mind a brighter neck and fuller bridge pickup so considering a swap.

Maybe put an A5 magnet in the neck pup to give it the lift...........just a thought, something that I've done successfully over the years. I'm presuming A4 or A2 is in it currently.
