NGD 1959 ES 335 Dot reissue

Recommended Posts

I pulled the trigger today. Man, what an awesome guitar! it's a perfect addition to my tone array. I initially wanted an r9, but after reading all the posts here on the forum about the 335, I figured I got that tone pretty much covered with my r8. Anyway, after reading the posts here i tried the 335 along with an r6 and an r9, all where awesome but the 335 just felt right. I love the neck and really love the tone of the custom buckers in the semi hollow body.

 

It's a vintage sunburst, made November 2013 number 205.

 

I was curious as to how many 335's the custom shop produce in a year. Does anybody have an idea?

 

I'll post some picks this weekend if I can

I don't know about the numbers but congratulations!

 

I like Les Pauls a lot but if my house ever caught fire I'd grab the 335, the Lucille and the wife.

[laugh] Thanks Steve.

 

I haven't read a bad comment yet about a 335, and after having had time to play her some more last night and today, I can see why. Every tone adjustment I have tried on the neck and bridge pick up has been a real treat and the neck is just sublime, it really is an awesome guitar all round. I am very happy she came my way, she's a keeper for sure.

 

Here are a couple of quick snaps I took with my phone, they didn't come out very well unfortunately but then I always did suck at photography. My wife often reminds me of this. [biggrin]
