Style of music - Rock/Punk, Jazz, Metal, Blues. Playing time - 2008-present. "Can I have the Gibson version for this price?" (350). If stolen - Buy a new one. Love - sounds and playability. Hate - Nothing Favourite Feature - Pickups. Compared this to the ES-335, I preferred the ES-333.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The action of the guitar was very well set up on my guitar. Loved the factory strings, not sure what they were. Currently using Ernie Ball Skinny Top Heavy Bottom strings. - Sounds excellent. My only minor concern was the it was matte and after some use it becomes shiny from where you rest your hand. Looks good though, not too bothered.
