I just got her and I love her.
This an 80s pre-custom-shop 59 copy, pretty early ttempt at recreating a golden age 335. It has Tim Shaw humbuckers that are thick and syrupy with a complex tone. The neck is medium fat as it should be, very similar to the shape of my Yamaha 335, but the Yamaha has a mid-60s thin nut and this has the wide 50s nut that encourages bends but is a bit less fast on flatpicked jazz runs. Mine is black, not my preferred color but it was a great deal for a 335 having been re-fretted at least once. Obviously there is n fret edge binding left after the refret. Great rosewood fingerboard with a wide, streaky grain you don't see on a lot of modern guitars due to old growth woods being virtually non-existent now. Its also on the light side for a 335 and has a brightness on the bridge pickup that's almost gretschy. Its even louder unplugged than any of the other semis I've owned right up there with the starfire I used to play in highschool jazz band which was fully hollow but thing. This guitar sounds and plays great. Didn't even need to tweak the setup from the store. If you can get an 80s dot go for it, they are far better than most 80s les pauls if my 335 and the 88 LP I used to own are any indication. Love it. So stoked to finally have a Gibson 335, my favorite guitar ever.
This was the most expensive guitar I'd ever purchased, even with the tempering influence of my wife sitting next to me in the shop - it was a must purchase. Those lovely hum-bucking pick-ups and big hollow body - what an ideal combination for the guitarist. Giving enormous versatility and sich a serious look. A beautiful piece of craftsmanship from Gibson.
Bought this beauty last week. Originally wanted the Tom Delonge signature es-333 as soon as I had found out about it, but the more I looked into it, I wanted to be able to change the tone and Tom's won't allow it. Noticed many of my favorite guitarists have used it, so I went with this one.
I'm very used to acoustic and this is the perfect feel for in between electric and acoustic in my opinion. Love the sound whether plugged in or not. Very easy feel on the neck. Great weight. Body is a little big to what I'm used to on an electric, but I'm quickly getting accustomed to it.
One of the most versatile and beautiful guitars I've ever played and recorded with. Every time I pick it up I melt
The 335 is a very versatile and light guitar, it plays beautifully when going from an Acoustic or clean section of a song to then playing in full Overdrive and distortion. I've recorded parts of songs with the guitar and just love how it sounds (QU-24 and Pro-tools). If you ever think about buying a 335, do it. You won't regret it!
The one I played was a factory defect but still...
The one I played was a vintage 1960's version with a factory defect and output jack issues but still... Nothing sounds more rock & roll to my ears than a 335. Nothing. Sounds so full and beefy with layers of overtones. In my opinion nothing sounds better through a thinker fuzz pedal. Only wish it had a Bigsby, but that's why they made the 355.
