• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Where’s es-335.org?

One of my favourite places to read and learn about ES guitars seems to have disappeared. The site has been down for over 2 weeks now and I need my vintage ES content fix.

Anyone know what’s going on? I notice that okguitars is down too. Hope Charlie’s okay...

woah. really strange, I can access it from my work network, but not with my mobile data connection (tried tethering too, to eliminate chance of my phone doing something strange).

weird times. Disregard, I guess!

ES-335.org is still around, I spoke with Charlie Gelber on Wednesday. I miss Tom H's site ES-335.net.

If you are not getting to my site, try ES-335.com. Once that URL became available, I switched the site over to it. The dot org URL is supposed to forward you to the dot com but maybe it is having a problem. You can also use the URL ok guitars.com. They all go to the same place. I'm doing 2-3 posts a month, so it's definitely still active. I miss Tom's site as well (dot net). It was my go-to source for facts and figures and cool photos. Tom, if you're reading this, I would be happy to take over the site and incorporate it into mine.

although ok guitars is very informative it is always nice to get a different perspective from another site i enjoyed tom's site and liked the fact that he was making a registry of es335 the photos of the construction of the 335 was informative as well

Do they have other ES guitars? I don't have a 335 but I have a few older (not vintage) ES guitars. A '67 ES-355, '68 ES-330, and a '65 EB-2.

They did have ES-330s, 345's and 355's on that site.
