It's a bad photo but I just bought this:

1962 Es-335, refinished black (original cherry is underneath), neck break and not many original parts - cost a lot less than a block reissue though and sounds great, it's got more honk than a flock of Geese!!

I just posted this pic in another thread, but oh well.

My 1991 ES-335 Studio. At some point before me, someone put the covers on the 57 pickups (Studio had them open) and replaced the tuners with Grovers, which I prefer anyway. No f-holes, but still a semi-hollow and not solid body. Easily weighs over 10 pounds, I have to use a special strap or my shoulder and back kill after an hour. It screams.

Yes, factory installed too. It's my understanding that they did the coil tap for maybe 5 years or so. When I went looking for a 335 I wasn't out to find one with a trapeze or a coil tap, but I found this one and fell in love with it.

I've found the split position is really usable. I love it with both pickups on.

What a killer option. I like that it's a toggle and not a push/pull on a pot, if only for reliability reasons. The only times ever I've seen that coil split switch on the lower bout of a Gibson semi-hollowbody was on the ES-347 in the '80s. That's a helluva find to get one on a 335 from the mid-70s with the small block inlays. (And in my favorite color, no less!) :applause:

Let me know if you ever decide to get rid of it, so first I'd have the chance to knock some sense into you and second so I could buy it! :thumb:

I didn't know if there is such a thread on this forum; I couldn't find one at first (the search function won't allow a word with less than three letters or digits). So I started my own and would like to delete it but I don't know how to do that in this forum. In the meantime:

gorgeous stuff stylemaster!

Thank you! I just got the Fat Neck. I didn't expect to get a second 335, especially so similar to the first. I was trying to trade for an LP Standard but when this Fat Neck 335 was offered - I couldn't refuse. I certainly can't complain! Besides the Fat Neck & '68 necks are polar opposites in size & shape.
