Wow. Super cool guitars!
I played my 330 and my 335 last night and I am still envious.
Here's a fairly uncommon one. A 2000 ES-446. This is an absolutely smokin' guitar. I went through a phase for a couple of years where I played nothing but this and my 335.
Here is two more, one vintage & one from a new model line
1966 ES-125 TDC
2015 ES-Les Paul
This my new love...A 1990 335 Dot. Very slim neck that I thought would be hard to get used to, but it feels perfect after 5 days of playing. The board is beautiful and I have noticed that a lot of the 335's have a blonde streaky type rosewood board
I got my first ES this past weekend.
Tell your boss that the bridge is on backwards.
Oh, I'll join! I have a '72 ES-335TDC with a Maestro Vibrola. It has had some mods by my uncle whenever he had it, such as replacing the ABR-1 with a Nashville Tom and replacing the Klusons with Sprezels. It looks like it has also had a headstock repair, but what does it matter, as anything that makes it play better is worth it
2014 ES Lester Goldtop fort knoxified
Gibson Trini Lopez -66
Fookit. I want the Trini, too!
My buddy found this 60's ES-330 (still not sure of the exact year) w/original case at a yard sale a few years ago for $250!!
I'm not sure exactly when they started the 19th fret neck join on these, I think it was 67 or so. It is at least that old, plus the witch hat knobs(if original), I would say 68-69. It's a beauty and a hell of a nice yard sale score. I wish that would happen to me.
Thanks for that info, Pete. I'm pretty sure those knobs are original - I think the pickups and the tuners may not be original, but I'm not sure about that.
I'll definitely tell my buddy who owns it about your information here.
Yeah, I wish I could find a deal like that, too! He was just driving by and saw it sitting out in the yard with the other stuff. Of course, he pulled in to check it out - then saw the $250 price tag, and bought it on the spot. He asked them to hold it for him while he ran to the bank to get the cash, and they did.
I think the covers for the pickups would probably be chrome at this point. Again I'm not an expert on these, but Im pretty certain metal covers were the norm by 64 or so. I would like to get a dot neck version in the future. I can guarantee it will cost me more than $250. What a find.
Yep - he really scored on this one.. He knows it, too. Talk about a lucky day driving by that yard sale... !!
If you can get photos of the back of the headstock and whatever stamp or label is inside of the F-hole, people here could almost certainly tell exactly what it is.
I, for one, would be very curious. Super cool ES 330!
