I expected the L4 to have the sweeter tone, but the 335 has it there. IMHO of course.
I sometimes think; therefore I am intermittent

The L4CES traditionally came with an ebony fingerboard. Has Gibson changed this? That one looks like rosewood. [unsure]

Being partial to the L4CES I must say I prefer the sound of the ES-335 Custom - much richer. Same pickups?

The problem is that the L4 had a string of 10-46 and the L4 needs to carry a minimum of 12-52 to sound sweet

Now in this video she has some strings 12-52 and that makes her sound sweeter than before



Many Thanks!!

I would have preferred an ebony fretboard

The L4 has 57 classic and the 335 I think it has burstbucker

In this video I think it sounds better than before the L4 because it has some strings 12-52



Many Thanks!!

Nice comparison, I found the videos interesting. Absolutely gorgeous L4CES you have there.
