Did the thread on GASing for an ES-335 actually give you GAS for an ES-335?Larry Mal wrote: ↑Tue Nov 03, 2020 3:12 pmWell, as proof of concept I guess, I just bought an ES-335 Dot for $2k. Of course, it'll cost more since it was on credit and I'll need to pay it off quickly, so a few things will need to be sold.
Fact is, I think it's time to downsize to less guitars that are of higher quality, since my recording room isn't large and there's not a ton of space for all my instruments.
It's a 2019, basically mint, and I like that they've gone to the ABR-1 bridge with brass saddles finally, this one has locking tuners already, and if the tailpiece locks then I don't know anything I need to do.
It's this one.
I'll update as to the quality when I get it.
I know what you mean about paring down to fewer, nicer guitars. I did that with my acoustics years ago, but haven't been as good about culling the electric herd until recently. I'm down 3 electric guitars in the last month or two, so I guess I'm moving in the right direction.
Either way, congrats. That 335 looks awesome and it sounds like you got a 1 year old guitar in great condition for 1/3rd less than a new one, which is absolutely the way to get the most bang for your buck.
