  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.
  14. Brings back memories of my youth when in 1948 I accidentally dialed in a local radio station, out of someone's garage, playing Blues. I heard BB King. During my high school days our band picked up not only Blues and Rock-a-Billy, the new Rock sound came in. Never thought it would last since much of the guitar'ing was crude and lacked precision. It evolved. So did I. Wish my hands would allow me to play again, but arthritis is too bad. The good old days: Never heard the big city DJ's, we had WLAC out of Nashville :)
  15. Get hah Job, la de de la de da dah. Remember that song? https://www.bing.com/search?q=get+a+job+song&qs=ONR&pq=get+a+job&sk=AS1&sc=8-9&cvid=679724AB81C0480AAA583CCBA09A596D&FORM=QBLH&sp=2

  18. Tried to delete but no delete option!
  19. My wife and I quit smoking 38 years ago and now gag if near someone who smokes. Several close friends are gone from lung cancer. It is not a pleasant way to die.
