Default NGD! Gibson ES-335!

So the day finally came (after a few UPS delays) that my brand new 2016 Gibson ES-335 Studio came to its final resting place. I can not believe how well this guitar plays. I thought I knew what a great guitar felt like in my hands (having played several Fender CS and Nash Teles), but man.. the neck is fairly thin as it is a ďsoft cĒ shape, but it feels extremely comfortable to me. The tone is your typical 335 airy and beautiful sound. The neck has a Ď57 Classic pickup and the bridge is a Super Ď57 Classic I believe. I donít have any complaints so far and my wife hates that I have been ignoring her for the past few hours. I know there have been a lot of complaints about Gibsonís quality control, but I canít find a single flaw on this guitar. And if there is a blemish, I canít find it. Anyways, hereís a few pics (I didnít have natural light, so Iím sorry for the poor quality)

-Ty

Congrats on a great guitar. I love 335s. Make sure you have both a Vox and Fender to play her though!

Very sweet Gibson. Also nice that you don't have any minor Gibson "issues" to observe and obsess over. Enjoy this positive experience.

Iím very thankful. I got this on a Cyber Monday deal from Chicago Music Exchange and I had heard a lot of people were returning their guitars due to issues, but I guess that was earlier in November. I guess recent orders were more thoroughly inspected.

Get either of those, and you may never leave the house.

Iíve heard people bashing them, so I thought I would need to change them out right away. Yeah, those people are insane. These pickups are some of the best Iíve ever heard.

Sweet! Congrats on the 335. I think the Super '57 Classic you're referring to is known to many as the '57 Classic + (plus). It has just a little more output than the '57 Classic.

Enjoy!
