Well I traded a few things in and was able to pick this up. Same design as the Japanese Elitist series in terms of construction. Very nice.

Oh no sir! That’s my forever guitar. Just some of my vintage pedals and the money I had in my guitar fund! Dealer discount and it worked out. This’ll be a case queen, something I rarely do but it needs to remain OG.

Yeah I was in ER hooked up to a morphine drip this week. Worse is they have no clue what the issue is. BTW first time experiencing that stuff. Horrible! The 59 is the first thing I’m going to plug in as soon as possible just to cheer my fingers up! We’re gonna be ok so just keep the positive vibes going!

Removed the ashtray and the Custom Made plate for safe keeping. I kinda like the look this way!
I’m preferring playing this over my 59’. After a half hour on a strap my shoulder couldn’t handle it. The 335 at the same weight seems lighter somehow.

Mine’s a bit chunkier, 8.10 Lbs. Great guitars, getting crazy great sustain out of mine. Congrats and enjoy!

Now with the ashtray off it really is light and resonates really loud and clear.

Feeling better…slowly, but here is another picture from the dealer showing my JB 335 weight. Very nicely balanced and not heavy. View attachment 653684
Glad to hear you’re feeling better and liking the guitar. Wishing all the best, it looks great.

I recently got the same guitar and it truly impressed me far more than I expected. It’s the first Epiphone I’ve bought in over 10 years and the fret work, fit & finish, and overall tone is fantastic. They really seemed to step it up with this. I enjoy playing it as much as my Gibsons.

Having a bit of fun with it here. My first semi-hollow and loving that controlled feedback. :D
