Guitar Sound Review - Gibson L4 vs Gibson ES-335 - DV Mark Little Jazz - Daddario NYXL1046

Recommended Posts

The L4CES traditionally came with an ebony fingerboard. Has Gibson changed this? That one looks like rosewood. [unsure]

 

Being partial to the L4CES I must say I prefer the sound of the ES-335 Custom - much richer. Same pickups?

I expected the L4 to have the sweeter tone, but the 335 has it there. IMHO of course.

 

The problem is that the L4 had a string of 10-46 and the L4 needs to carry a minimum of 12-52 to sound sweet

 

Now in this video she has some strings 12-52 and that makes her sound sweeter than before

 

 

Many Thanks!!

I would have preferred an ebony fretboard

 

The L4 has 57 classic and the 335 I think it has burstbucker

 

In this video I think it sounds better than before the L4 because it has some strings 12-52

 

 

Many Thanks!!
