  1. When it's strung up and tuned EADGBe the string tension is just too much to work with. If it had .050 JUMBO frets it might be more comfortable.
  2. Right ES 335 - 12 string. Mfg in 2013 Came with Gibson nickel wound strings. Replaced one at a time with Ernie Ball "Light". As follows: 9-9, 12-12, 20w-9p, 26w-12p, 36w-20p, 46w-26p. The main problem was that the tuning machines were loose. After removing a string and prior to replacement I tightened the hex holding the tuner into the head stock. That removed most of the disgusting noise. Had a difficult time tightening a 9 g string and replaced with an 11. Adjusted the truss rod and raised the action. Still has an odd sound. Not a BIG 335 but a BIG NOISY something else.
  3. Check the tuning machines. They "Shake, Rattle and Hum".
  4. Can't have enough Tele's. The BIG + is that you can leave it out and the kids can walk on it, drop it, bump it, mash it AND it will NOT matter!
  5. Hi, I picked up an ES 12 string a year ago. The sound is ............... not what I expected. I'm wondering if a different brand string set would change the tone in some more delightful way. Any suggestions? Thanks
  6. I noticed this on a 2014 Les Paul Traditional. Kinda ugly but .......................... must be what they do to save a cent or two.
  7. Hi, I recently saw an interior tag that was made out as follows: ESat335 - serial # 10610727. What does the lettering between the "ES" and the "335" indicate? Hi, Photo attached. Any ideas as to what it means? Thanks.
  8. Greetings, I'm searching for the complete ad photo of both the Beale Street Blue and Wine Red run of 2010. I've attached the Wine Red pix. Can anyone direct me to it? Thank You.
  9. But the 335 isn't an "archtop". It's a "semi-hollow". If it matters.
  10. Many thanks. As usual the best option is to hunt one down and try the particular piece.
  11. Hi, Is the neck profile any different year by year on the new re-issued ES 330's? Is 2010 the same as 2011, 2012 and 2013? This year's trade show seems to indicate the 2013 is a more accurate reproduction of a 1959. I'm interested in the "chunkiest" neck available. Thanks,
  12. This is getting tedious. Does a "TRADITIONAL" neck duplicate that of a 50'? Not only profile but dimentions? Not much is gained by simply changing the profile of a 60's slim taper and calling it a '50's.
  13. I gather the Guitar Center's version of the LP "TRAD PRO" is going the way of the DooDoo bird to make room for "something new" but that's a Guitar Center special run captive product and not what I'm asking about. Is the LP TRADITIONAL PLUS going away? '50's rounded neck profile, '57 covered humbuckers, rosewood fingerboard .............
  14. When one goes to the Crossroads, meets the devil - he (she) takes the insturment, hands it back and the pilgrim can thereafter play the guitar is it: a.) because the devil has imparted knowledge about connventional tuning EADGBE or b.) becasue he (she) has retuned it to make it easier to play? (open tuning) c.) ?
