heres my ES-335




i have a gibson es-335 and those things r amzing, very versatile. And i thought since it was a semihollowbody it wouldnt hold distortion very well, but actually it is great with distortion and has a very classic tone to it.

I just bought an ES 137 tonight. It's the exact satin blue colour posted earlier. Traded in my two Gretsch electromatics for it. ****, I'm so afraid to even touch it right now...

Basically, all Gretches have TV Jones pickups in them, and the electronics of a Gretsch are to die for, so they're really good. Listen to Reverend Horton Heat or Brian Setzer, they've got TV Jones.


And I forgot about the Jazz model they had.

Hmm. I use my Epi for a little higher-octane stuff. I'll have to try out a few more Gretsches.

Yeah, but why is it that every guitar maker acts like it's taboo to put binding on a fretboard that has dots?

You're buying a Wildkat - that, and some old Ibanez Artists are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head that have dots and binding. I love the look that gives, though.

I've been thinking about getting a dot if I can pick one up for cheap of ebay or something I want to try and bounden my style a bit more I mean i don't really own a guitar that can do really nice cleans so I'm just at the point of considering getting a dot or maybe go for something like a telecaster (maybe a hollow-body tele)

I havez a modded Epi Dot and modded Wesley Freeport (thinline P-90 Tele copy).

Love both, especially with the new pups - BKP's for Dot and Lollars for Wesley. Semi's just have this airiness and clarity that's amazing. Oh, and my Wesley has abalone dots and binding on the fretboard.

Great, I love it. One small problem is the frets, they're not that great. But if you live near you can go and try out several and pick out the best, right? If that's the case, I'd say get one pronto. The colour (blueburst for mine) is great, the binding and abalone look amazing and with the mods it so far sounds almost exactly how an electric guitar should sound, to em at least.

And for 300 all told, for guitar, postage, mods and set-up, it's a steal. Beats my stock MIM Strat that cost the same by a ridiculous margin. And it's alder

And time wise about 4 months. 2 days with the mods though.

i'm getting an older epiphone sheraton II with the chunky bridge soon i hope. It has some of the gold hardware faded, and i think that makes it look better everything about the thinline gibson/epi style hollow/semi-hollows is pure sex imo. the look, the tone, the feel. everything.

I'm thinking about grabbing an old Sheraton. I'd like to get one of the old white ones.
