  1. I know it's personal taste, but I really don't like the thin necks. I tried a 1937 L5 last weekend and said no thanks seconds after feeling the thin neck. I know know how people play them, but then again it's what you like.
  2. I played a 1937 HG00 at Vintage Guitars in Philadelphia last week. It was converted to a Spanish style bridge and nut. This guitar is amazing. It's very loud and great tone. Plus it's got a maple body rather than a mahogany. Must have been a special order. Definitely worth checking out.
  3. Looks like that one is on hold already. It was a good price . I have a friend that paid more for one last weekend and thought it was a good deal.
  4. They did make a 1934 L5 reissue. I had one for a while and it was a very nice guitar. Loved the neck, and very good tone for a new guitar. I bought it used on eBay and kept it until I bought a 1947 L7 which I've just traded and now getting a 1947 L5. The new ones are great, but there are still a lot of great used ones from the 30s and 40's that aren't too expensive yet... especially if you'll go with an L7, L10, L4, etc. There are a lot of nice Gibson arch tops out there for $3K or less.
  5. 335's can be great guitars, but like any model it depends on how well it was made, the wood used, and your personal taste. I've seen some 335's that I'd love to have, and others I wouldn't want. Figure out what style neck you like (fat, thin, C, V, etc.), then get out and play a few. Used ones are a great option. I came close to buying a used custom shop 335 last weekend that had a great neck for $2800 in the US. You definitely don't want to only consider new ones.
