The moment I walked in my local music store to buy my first electric I immediately fell in love with this very guitar. The iconic ES-335 shape always gets to me in a way no guitar ever did. I bought the guitar and started playing. I never stopped. The guitar had some issues, it was to heavy for a 12 year-old and it sometimes forgot to stay in tune. But I loved it, still do. If it weren't for this guitar I would probably never have played so much to the point of joining Equipboard and writing this very review. The guitar was shockingly well built and the pickups are VERY responsive to light harmonic touches. something my Fender has trouble with. We all have that one guitar we would save from a fire, well this is my choice. Not just the numismatic value, but also the sheer overpowering sound of 'Sunshine' will be something I never want to lose.
Never seen one for sale, on stage or on the web. I was very fortunate to obtain 'Sunshine' and I wish everyone a similar experience.
