    Love it. Grovers look great on 335s too. Perfect for jamming out some cream stuff. Skinny neck I imagine?

    Pretty close to the 63 reissue I had from 2015. On the slimmer side yes.

    Cool deal congrats on snagging one. I too think 'Red' when I think EC. Curious did TM do the aging on these?

    I don't think TM was involved. There's no documentation of it on the COA's

    I haven't watched this video in years but may again

    Sweet! Congrats! :applause: :dude:

    Do you have a Firebird I and a '64 SG on your list, too? :hmm:

    ^^^ I would love to see that!

    I had a trade in the works for a Firebird 1 Reissue but did not come to fruition. I'll grab one sooner or later. I'm not an SG guy so won't be making that leap.

    I'm not a relic guy personally, but its always neat to see an artist collector find that perfect piece. Love 335's though.
    Congrats!

    Looks great Crotch! How does it compare to the Dave Grohl playwise. I know my gold Grohl has a awesome sized neck. One of my favorites. Not skinny but not overly fat either.

    Skinnier neck than the grohl. I haven't had enough play time on it for an accurate comparison. I still need to change out the strings. Haven't had a chance.

    That's awesome Crotch. Congrats!
    Sweet EC collection. Have you sought out a "Fool" SG yet?

    There is really no such thing except for some overpriced homeade ones, which are nice don't get me wrong. But not 3K nice.

    Congrats!! I love the case too. I've always loved the sound of the 335 but I just thought that I would not like the large body. Well, I recently bought an old lawsuit era es335 copy must to see if I would bond with it. It is fast becoming my favorite!

    I'd be hunting a Clapton chopped Explorer. That's the one model I regret not purchasing when the original run was being discounted. I ran across a few in the $2500-$2700 range and now I don't see them come up for sale. :facepalm:

    I was under the assumption they only made 25 of those. Probably impossible to find now. And whatever the price would be now would be crazy I bet
