  1. From Jacob Stutzman over there at Sweetwater... Upper bout: 10 5/32" Waist: 8 1/8" Lower Bout: 14 5/32" Body thickness: 1 9/16"
  2. yes, sir. If you like it, buy it. Just vet the seller.
  3. Looks legit, Rednef. Although, Guitar Dater Project cannot find serial #'s that begin with ME, I have seen then on Reverb. I just don't remember which model. Is this a '63 reissue?
  4. Also, when pickup switch is in the MIDDLE position (both pups), turn EITHER volume knob off disables BOTH pups. This is kinda like a master volume feature.

  6. PERFECT! This will do JUST fine if I ever find myself gigging at Spaghettinni...
  7. Yes. I've seen a few examples and the holes stick out unless the entire guitar has been refinished. Show stopper!
  8. Just answered my own question. (What is this - Stack Overflow ???) Anyway a pic on Reverb clearly shows a 1981 with a great view of the bottom of the body. The Trap is affixed to the strap button with two additional holes to boot. Installation, therefore, would constitute a virtually irreversible modification. Other than that I reckon the stop piece pins would unscrew leaving metal studs in he body, eh? I could screw in some wooden "dowels" or push in some plastic pieces of flair like...crazy daisies or the like.
  9. Soooooooo.... Supposing I want to convert me Gibby to a trap tail. Does Trapeze use the strap pin hole? Do the stop piece pins unscrew? Thank you. - Gampa (I am not a crackpot)
  10. I always use D'Addario XL Nickel Wound 10 gauge on my 335 and have used same on a 339 a had a couple of years ago. They give the best general all-around tone of all the strings I've tried. That would be the aforementioned and Gibson Bright-wires.
  11. DUDE! That totally blows! Glad you were able to see it for what it was before initiating the transaction.

    Unique ES 125T

    Maybe Charlie over there at OK Guitars can point you in the right direction. http://www.es-335.org/
  13. Yes. Most definitely the studio models but, beyond that, even in the studio line there are differences. It would seem that the "two knobers" have much more rounded body edges.
  14. I'm back. Further investigation reveals that it is the models with the "simplified controls" (one volume, one tone) that are more rounded at the edges. Is that because they are chambered? What gives?
