Currently struggling to Pinpoint the Exact Model of a ES-335, is it possible to do this from the serial number ?
The only details I can currently find out is that it was made in 2005 at the Nashville TN Plant so any help appreciated.

Serial is not that much help, I'm afraid. Just manufacturing year and stuff.
Modelcode at least tells about nickel hardware and color - that's it.

Code on mine is ESDPVSNH1

DP dot plain top
VS vintage sunburst
NH nickel hardware
1 prime quality passed, which all are

Mine is a Memphis but have no idea if any difference to Nashville ones.

What I look for is pickups - and personally like Gibson 57' Classic ones on semiacoustics like 335.
I have Burstbuckers on an LP Standard, but not sure I like them as much in general - but very different guitar of course.
Newer 335 seems to have Burstbuckers on some models.

Other typical things are finish - figured top, most expensive. More deep laquer and selected wood more refined in looks.
Plaintop - and little thinner laquer and not as much figured woods in top.
Satin finish - is simpler over all.
Studio model - cut down, and saw that latest models seems to have one volume and tone only.
