    Here's mine. It's a 2011 Gibson ES-335 Dot Re-issue that I only picked up last week.

    Not a ES but a DG

    In fact it's a copy, because Gibson refused to make me one. Every bit of hardware and electronics has been changed out, except the tuners which were amazingly Grovers. Apart from a couple minor cosmetic blemishes, the guitar sounds and plays amazing! [​IMG]

    2008 "Fat Neck" Feels and sounds better than the '66 I had.
    And they are not kidding about a fat neck......093 at first fret.
    Killer guitars if you can find one.

    I just found an old picture (circa 1980) of my 70's 335. It might be a 72, no one really cared much back then about exact dates and such.

    I just got this Historic 59RI a couple weeks ago and I'm totally smitten with it.

    My 1968 ES 330 is beside it.

    That is so pretty I'm so jealous of you guys! I have a nice 335 copy, a Riviera P-93 and I love that! Man you guys are getting me gassy.

    Gibson ES335 case F/S

    Hi - don't mean to crash this thread, but if any 335 owners need a good Gibson case from the 90's to match their guitar, I have one for sale.
    Great shape, with shroud - here's some pics. $250 shipped; pm me for more details.
    Thanks!

    Here's mine. It's a 2013 with some minor cosmetic mods: creme pickup rings, gold reflector knobs, amber switch tip and no pickguard.

    Is there another choice when it comes to Gibson semi-hollows?! Actually, I could see myself with a pink/purple one like Samual L Jackson plays in Black Snake Moan. I've never seen another one like that for sale, though.

    Uncle Fiesta- Never seen a blue one before. Is that a custom color or something?


    Don't have a 335 (yet) but I do have a '67 Rivoli bass. Cherry red with white binding.
    Not mine, and in way better condition but pretty much the same as what I have.

    Might get an Epi ES 335 Dot, or save my money and get a Gibson.

    Not mine but belongs to a friend, 1971 Kalamazoo made given to him when he was 18. Modded with a coil tap switch and locking tuners.
    Went missing for a few years and finally found its way back home last November, still plays like a dream, and Mick Jagger used it on a solo album. Priceless!
