Weird, I could've sworn I had posted this already. Anyway, a friend of mine has a Gibson he's using to... collect dust under his bed so he offered to loan it to me for a little bit. Needs a lot of TLC, new strings...

Dadadamn! That's good looking. Enjoy it!
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

I love these old-school semi-hollow guitars. It just oozes classiness. Enjoy it as long as you can!

I think it's full hollow, no? haven't tried it yet. Need to get some strings first.

Honestly, I don't know. Now that I noticed the thickness of the body, maybe it is.

But it's an insanely classy guitar either way. If I was its owner, I wouldn't let it sit around collecting dust; it's almost a crime to do so.

Agreed! It def needs some TLC.

I'm confused about this one too to be honest. When I told my friend I wanted to buy that Epi ES-335 pro I had seen at GC I'm pretty sure he said "I've got one, but a Gibson, want to try it?". Yeah! But I think it's an ES-175.

It's indeed an ES-175, unless I'm missing something and it's a slight variation. Totally different to a 335.

Lovely guitar though. Not sure why some one would have it collect dust. Enjoy it!

Quite nice. Most likely is full hollow, if you don't like it you can send it to me...I promise I'll send it back when I get tired of it....in 30 years or so...
Hmmm...I wonder what this button does...
#11
Sweet an ES 175 gotta try some Yes riffs on it. Steve Howe's main axe is a ES 175. but he has at least one of everything.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Well... it's nice and all but after playing with it (although not for super long) I'm not really blown away. I guess there might be something wrong with me surely? I mean, it certainly ** does ** sound nice, don't get me wrong, there's no question about that, but it doesn't sound a ton nicer than my LTD... which happens to be a lot more comfortable... :-D

It actually makes me rethink getting a semi-hollow altogether. I love the Epi ES-335 pro, tried it again today, I love the way it feels (it's actually setup extremely well, a total pleasure to play), it's very comfortable and it sounds nice but I'm not sure it makes sense...

Feels man, thats what it comes down too. Just because its expensive doesn't your hands will like it.

Action is super low. Almost too much, I don't like it when the strings slide under my fingers when I bend, I guess I need to adjust to that.
