Thank you! Pictures don’t do the instrument justice. It really is a thing of beauty, and when you consider the time and craftsmanship that went into it, it’s pretty special, I think.
ive been playing it for a week or so... and really have had no issues with it falling out of tune. As the instrument warms up from holding it and playing, minor adjustment in tuning can be made, but really is just very sweet to play. I thought I might have issue with the stock kluson tuners, but they actually work very well, have no play, and are very sensitive to adjustment.
Sound wise, it is very different from its larger cousin the es-335. The sound is more punchy, with a very responsive attack. And the variety of tones it can produce makes it very versatile.
The smaller body makes it very comfortable to hold and play. Similar in size to a Les Paul, but much lighter ( this one just shy of 7 lbs).
I will keep this guitar forever.
