I finally got my Gibson ES-335.




It sounds as good as it looks.

Definitely will once I get back to my dorm room. I just couldn't help but show it off a little bit! :D

I went to Dave's Guitar Shop in La Crosse, Wisconsin and played every 335 in the store (as well as some 355s, PRS Hollowbodies, and Rickenbackers) for 6 hours before settling on this one. It was well worth it. Seriously, its the most beautiful thing I have ever seen or played.

It was priced at $2749.99, but I managed to negotiate it down to $2349.99 (came out to about $2500 with tax). Originally I was looking at a used ES-335 of a cheaper model, but the owner was asking for $1600.00 when it was worth about $1100.00 to $1400.00 so in the end I just bought new. In fact, this one arrived from the factory the day before.

Sounds pretty expensive I know, but I've been looking for a guitar that can keep up with my playing and last me for the rest of my years (granted, I take good care of it). I found it in this guitar, and it was worth every single penny.

Hey Foogered,
You didn't take the money out of the "beer fund" did you? There seems to be 2500.00 missing! LOL
Seriously, I love it! Congrats! Now let's hear it.

I played a 620 along time ago, it was a black star edition or something. It was all black sorta like the goth guitars are now but this was back in the 90's. I did not like it at all, tone was fine but the fretboard was so small, and i got fat sausage fingers (ok maybe not that fat) I could not even play a chord.

Still waiting for a recording Foogered......
