  1. The only reason my 335 fit the 1966 year was when I actually bought it, in 1966 or 67. It has been too long ago to remember exactly. Seems like Gibson's S/numbers were haphazard.
  2. I suggest she learn a few licks other that the one.
  3. A voice from heaven and guitar style way out:
  4. I was replacing my old 1957 Les Paul "SG" or "Special" or whatever it was and went to a big guitar shop in Ft. Worth, Texas. I really wanted the sunburst color, but they were out and I was short on time so got the red one. Guess if Chuck Berry had one I could too 🙂 Here is a URL for much info on Gibson guitars: http://www.guitarhq.com/gibson.html
  5. Tried to catch the cracks but they are slight: I haven't played it in several years due to arthritis and got tired of listening to myself. One forgets tunes. One loses interest.
  6. 🧓 Well, shows you how an old guy's memory slowly goes away; here is the back of the head stock with, you guess it, the serial number. Also, just one shot of the front at the inside label: The stamp inside has a fuzzy '8' and large '7'
  7. It is exactly as I bought it back in 1966. Not one to change a work of art :)
  8. I'll have to dig it out of the closet, so be patient -- I'm old. The serial number is not stamped on the head stock, only inside on that orange sticker. But I will look since it has been a while. There are some fine cracks in the front finish, so I will have to polish it a bit. I will have to look inside so see how the numbers are stamped. Hold on, I'll be back........
  9. I bought my 1966 ES-335 TDC (S/N 805807) in 1966. Dah.
  10. Man, he was my favorite back then. I was 16 years old.
  11. Keep your chin up, play music and work; that always cured my woes.
  12. condolences Rabs. Just wait until you get my age then you look around and think almost everyone you have known is gone. When I asked my 97 year old grandmother how it felt to be that age she replied "okay, just lonely."
  13. Wow, was I really that young!!!!! 1956.
