The black knobs would look great if they had used black reflector knobs.
I love attention to detail ! I am sure it matches any Gibson.
I have a 335 Pro in natural myself and agree on that it plays great straight out of the box.
Great job! I should send you my Sheraton for the deglossing. I just don't have the patience to do it correctly.
As far as humbucker sized P-90s in a semi, perfect combination. I have a set of Phat Cats in my Sherri. I play that guitar more than any other. It does it all, wonderfully.
I liked the black reflectors, so I put a set on my Dot. Also a Gibby style PG.
Looks good! Is that an actual Gibson pickguard? Was it a direct fit?
One last update. I added new Faber German steel tailpiece bushings, Gotoh aluminum tailpiece, Faber steel eSert posts, and Faber locking bridge. I also cut a bone nut for it, and installed a "faux historic" truss rod cover. I call it that because it has the thicker white border like the vintage Gibson truss rod covers. I did a final setup and she's playing and sounding fantastic. Below are some pics.
The only thing left for you to do is change the selector switch knob to cream.
Ya think so? Wasn't a fan of the black that came on it...so I ordered an amber and a cream tip. Put the amber on and kinda stuck with it. I'll have to see what the cream looks like!
My 335 Pro Iced Tea Burst came with the amber selector switch knob. I have a cream knob on its way. I am changing the volume and tone knobs to Gold Reflector knobs. Most of my parts will be here sometime next week. Your natural is looking great.
Awesome!!! What did you do on the neck before the steel wool!?
Nice work! I recently came by a cherry 335 pro and love it! I replaced the loom but nowhere near a neatly as you. I replaced the push pull pots with CTS initially. Then realised they didn't fit through the f holes. Went with bournes in the end but wish I'd binned the whole push pull thing entirely as you have. I'm glad my wiring is out of sight. It's ugly. Yours is a thing of beauty!
I got it off eBay. it was a Epiphone size, Gibson style. It was a direct fit though.
I am in the process of doing the finish work you have described above. I am at the last phase. How did you go about the buffing process so as to not make it overly glossy? Did you hand rub it with a buffing cloth or buff on a wheel?
Thanks! Looks great!
