Looking to buy a Gibson ES-335. Just wondering what the $500 difference is between these two models. Is it the gloss? The grover tuners vs the vintage tulip tuners? The wood? And what does this difference mean? If I buy a satin finish, what am I missing from the dot plain top and is it worth it? I've demo'd the satin and love it; just wondering what the extra cash actually goes towards and if I would regret not going the extra mile.

Here are links to the two:

Satin Finish

Dot Plain Top

Thanks in advance.
