As mentioned in this interview for Gibson... "Which of these Gibsons we’re going to talk about is your most prized? Or to put it another way: if there’s a fire, which one do you run in and grab? Man, I’d be full-handed. I would probably get stuck in the fire and burn trying to get too many of them out at once. But I would have to say that, out of the Gibsons, the first one that I would run in and grab would be my 1958 ES-335 that they only made 10 of." "Well, they made ten of those guitars from, I think, late September, early October until the end of December. This one is even more special than there only being 10 of them in the fact that it’s wired mono. It’s wired that way straight from the factory and there’s not a crack in the guitar – there is not a shoulder joint cut, the covers have never been off the pickups, and it honestly gives any Les Paul I have a run for its money as far as heaviness goes. And then you get that beautiful hollow body tone when you play it through a real clean set-up. That thing is extremely special."more
