    I'm selling two guitars for my son:
    1) 2006 Gibson Custom CS-336 in plain top Vintage Sunburst. This is in excellent condition, some light buckle rash in the back, 2 Gibson 57 Classic pickups, original Custom Shop case, no certificate or case candy (that's the way it came). Great tones and sustain, that great semi-hollow sound, and better than a CS-339.

    2) 2006 Gibson TV Yellow LP Special Double Cut, excellent shape, 2 Gibson P90 pickups, some buckle rash, the usual relicing. Great player and hard to find...these go quickly so don't hesitate.

    Monday morning bump for the CS-336...a wonderful guitar for that sweet semi-hollow sound, play a chord, have a leisurely dinner, and come back to that chord still going; great sustain.

    What's the difference between 336 and 339?

    Don't laugh because I really don't know...

    The two models use radically different construction methods to arrive at a "similar" spot musically, and a similar "small hollowbody" concept -- somewhere between the sound of an ES-335 and a Les Paul, with (in my opinion) the ES-339 leaning slightly towards the 335 sound and the CS-336 leaning slightly towards the sound on an LP. The 339 is a true "semi-hollow" in Gibson nomenclature, made with plywood top/back/sides sandwiched around a center-block. The 336 uses more of an archtop construction: a solid slab of mahogany that is then routed to create the sides/hollows/block area, capped with thick bookmatched maple that is then carved like an LP top with f-holes. The back is routed inside and out to create "dishing", but the sides are part of the same slab of mahogany and remain so during construction. The list price difference likely comes from that use of all-solid woods on the 336 (and 356).

    The specific sound of any two guitars -- even examples of the same model -- varies from one guitar to another, but a CS-356 (same constructions as the 336) has been my main guitar since 2003, and it's capable of giving me everything I need along that general scale of sound from 335-to-LP. It can be warm and woody, mellow and lush on the one hand and then rock hard on the other depending on amps/pedals/the situation. Generally, I'd say they're capable of being a bit brighter on the bridge pickup (almost Tele-like) than what most LP players are used to, and a bit more "scooped" sounding in the mids than perhaps a 335 player might expect. But they're exceptionally versatile in my opinion, and have a sound of their own that works very well in many situations.



    PS..i just did a google search and bogarted this from some dude who ACTUALLY knows what hes talking about but it lends great selling points to the OP..GLWS OP!

    Thanks for the info for the other guy. The 336 is an exceptional guitar. I had one which I sold for the Porsche, and this is my son's guitar. You can't go wrong with this one.

    Why is the CS-336 still here???:confused::confused: This is way better than those newer 339s. Great hollow-body tones and crunch in an LP-sized package.
    The illegitimate son of a 335 and an LP!
