Got this one in from Tokyo last week. Has the fat neck .963 1st and 1.03 12th fret with medium shoulders and a wider fretboard than my R6 and R8.... so good and beefy in my hand which is exactly what I was after. 8lb 3oz.
Changed the pup covers after the pic was taken to matte nickel ones and de-waxed the Custombuckers that read 7.98 neck and 7.88 bridge.
Has a woody open and airy rich tone and a nice 'plunk' when I hit the strings........like what you'd expect from a good semi hollow guitar.
Might get a light respray done in burgundy red around the perimeter top and back to warm her up a little.........we'll see.
It's taken 50 years for this 335 to come to fruition........and well worth the wait :cool:

I keep seeing new 335's in here, and I'm starting to feel a little left out !

Congrats! Looks like a keeper!! :thumb:

Well when I started out looking for one at pretty much the beginning of the lockdown I was looking for a fat necked '58.......but after a while of hunting for a used one around the globe none were to be found. The Memphis CS closed in early '19 and that's where those ones were produced. There are still a handful of new ones available('18s) but they're too costly.
I do hope in future the Nashville CS will make the '58s again.

Beautiful guitar. I love the Dot fretboard 335. Perfect color too. Enjoy it!
