Re: howard roberts v 135
The Howard Roberts is not the same body as the ES-135.
The HR is a smaller body (ES-135 is 17 in. HR is 15 in.) and has a much deeper cutaway so you can access all the frets. It is also thicker (ES-135 is 1.75 in deep and HR is 2.375 in Deep).
Both these guitars have Balsa center blocks.
Pickups are different, neck is different and the HR has an ebony fretboard.
If you like the ES-135 you will love the HR!!!
