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.
Next try will be Ernie Ball 8's.
By the way, that's me and my dog PAWS in front of the worlds largest ball of twine in CAWKER CITY, KANSAS.
