    Peavey JF1EX.... basically an ~ES335 copy, but it has an amazing PAF style bridge pup, that does AC/DC quite well. FC3BE52E-8DEB-4A12-BE0F-2327270EB9C5.jpeg

    Very Nice.
    Have you ever compared it to a Gibson?
    Not being critcal - just interested.
    Does one have to spend a mint to get good tone?

    it’s sounds very similar. I acquired this at an estate sale a few years ago for a song...$300 including a PRS SE.... a lucky once in a lifetime find.

    Those are great guitars. I was between one of those and a Washburn hb35. Ended up with the Washburn mostly because it was cheaper.

    I also own one with a couple mods. A roller bridge and Epiphone Alnico Classic pickups.. This pic is before the pickups were installed they are gold covered and look and sound killer in this guitar..

    I have a 1983 Peavey T-25 special in silver pearl, It's a lovely guitar in sound and feel.

    Nice !! One of biggest regrets is trading in a Peavey T-60 many years ago. It was a great playing and sounding guitar.

    Not in my opinion.
    One can, of course... but one doesn't have to.
