    Luckily my affinity for plaintops saved me $200... but i thought this deal was pretty fantastic and should be shared.

    Nice find man.

    When did Gibson start using burstbuckers in the 335s?

    In either 2014 or 2015 i think... I really like the sound they give as they aren't crazy different than the 57's, but different enough to be a slightly changed tone palette. the hot rodded BB's that show up in the LP's now, however, those have a really different sound profile.

    There are a couple vids of these on youtube, the one from Dawsons being the best, that sold me on them. just hoping i get a good one!

    FYI- Gibson used BB's in 335's before 2014 ... I have a 2013 that has them (Memphis '59 335 RI Blister top). So it's possible they were used even earlier then that ... I never followed 335 's before 2013(much), so it's difficult to say. Sounds good enough to keep them in .

    The link to the plain top doesn't work for me , so they maybe sold out . The other link states 6 more are available when i looked .

    Good find . A good 335 is special and as good or better then an LP . I've been converted to be a lover of Gibson's 335's by mine. :cool:

    Awesome deal. :shock:

    FWIW - I bought a guitar from CME earlier this year and they were great to deal with, top notch. Buy with confidence.

    still some left.

    changed mine to gold reflector knobs and now i'm pleased. Truly, an amazing neck on mine and this could not have worked out any better :)
