killer guitar sir! Did you find it or order it? Love the Bluesbreaker amp, sweet rig!
Please remind us of the details of that 335, namely, what year is it (1963, if I remember) and when did you acquire it? Have you made any modifications?This was back when I bought it. I had been bugging the guy for 8 years. The last pic is recent.
I always thought '63, serial # says '64. The original owner switched to drums. He ordered it with a vibrola because he was into Duane Eddy. It's been Grovered, but I have the original tuners, and the engraved pickguard. The R8 is a '98.Please remind us of the details of that 335, namely, what year is it (1963, if I remember) and when did you acquire it? Have you made any modifications?
Your 1996 (?) R9 is also very nice, but that's for another thread!
Thanks for the interesting info on the 335! I’ve always dug the lyre-style vibrola on it, it’s a cool look!
Not a Gibson but a kit. This was a basic shell without even the screw holes pre-drilled, just the pickup routes. It's a glued neck which was amazingly tight before I glued it. I threw all the parts away and replaced them with Gotoh nickel bridge, stoptail and machines. I put in a pair of SD Seth Lovers with 500k post and Orange Drops wired 50s style, I finished the body and neck with nitro and added abalone dots. The headstock is black with my family name (not Gibson). After a lot of fretwork its a great guitar to play and sounds really good . Maybe not a Gibson but still fun to assemble and unique.
