  1. Sounds like you found yourself a very nice guitar and are enjoying it. I have a 1956 ES225T, one year older than me, and I enjoy it very much so I know from where you speak. They are unique guitars and I think the tailpiece is part of the reason. Have fun. Thanks John
  2. Beautiful guitar TK LP, enjoy. If it plays half as good as it looks you will be happy with it. Thanks John
  3. I had a similar problem with my ES-335 and my ES-345. The correct Vibramate was off about 3/16 of an inch. I didn't want to use an extra bottom plate so I marked, re-drilled and tapped the top mounting holes in the Vibramate. Now it fits perfect. The Vibramate also gave me a better break angle over the bridge and makes the roller bridge unnecessary. I hope this helps and thanks John
  4. Steve, I have no answer to your question but the should be a very nice guitar. It is nice to see you around. Thanks John

  6. My 2009 ES-345 in walnut looked plastic and shiny when new now it has a lovely, well used patina. No chips, nicks or cracks but with a bit of wear on the gold it's beautiful and it was not a VOS model. My L-4CES is coming along well also. Thanks John
  7. I have a 2009 ES-345, 1975 Guild Starfire IV with a mahogany body and a 2013 Guild GSR Starfire VI with a spruce top and maple body. All are thin line semi hollow body guitars with dual humbuckers. These all seem like they are similar guitars but all are quite different playing and sounding and unique in their own way. I don't think I would but another Starfire or a ES-335. Although I would buy a ES-330 and I am not trying to be a smart ***. Thanks John
  8. I think you need to get a second opinion, just to be sure. Thanks John
  9. As for the Lucille I think it's more the individual guitar. Several people who have played my 2009 ES-345 comment on the piano like tone unplugged. "there that one did the trick" If they only could have heard it...". Thanks John
  10. It's OK, I am on the outside now. John
  11. beware of the goblin girls. Thanks John
  12. I like my ES-345 with out the pick guard. thanks John
  13. When I had to replace the switch in my 1991 LP Studio I found they originally used a Made In Japan switch. A Switchcraft switch would not fit properly. I was told the Japanese switch is a high quality switch and just as good as the Switchcraft switch. Thanks John
  14. I found that when I had to replace the switch in my 1991 Les Paul the switch was a Japan made switch with metric threads. I was miffed and thought Gibson was using a cheep China switch but my guitar tech told me the Japan made switch is a high quality switch and as good as a Switchcraft. thanks John
