Hi everyone!

So I wanted to share with you guys my newest guitar. I had been in the market for a ES-335 for a while but I wanted to get just the right one. I'm a big fan of Clapton, so I knew I wanted a 335 with block inlays. Opportunity stuck last week when I saw the Chicago Music Exchange was having a sale for their new model ES-335's. I knew it was now or never. I pulled the trigger and anxiously waited for it to arrive. and...

Well here it is!

The only problem I have now is choosing which one of these to use as my main guitar.

Looks great, the satin 339 and 335's are some of the best bangs for the buck in that whole sale.

Dang that's nice. How does she sound? I picked up a '58 from them as well, set to be delivered today

That is gorgeous. I love satin finishes ... just be careful to avoid the first-ding blues.

HNGD, bud.

No problem at all. Your main guitar will be the one you have in your hands at the moment.

Congrats, I decided as you did that now (thanks to CME) is the time to add that Gibson ES to the collection (I got the '64 ES-345 VOS)

Congrats! :applause:

I played my 335 today and I absolutely love it. But I am jealous over the price you paid, no doubt. :bowdown

You to rclausen! I lost sleep over the 58's they had.

Really nice, red is the perfect colour for an ES imo.

Congrats and HNGD :applause:

A cherry red 335 is among the items on my guitar bucket list for my inner Marty Mcfly... sweet ES!
