Zu aller erst muss ich erklären, dass ich seit 15 Jahren kaum noch etwas anderes spiele als Hollowbodymodelle.
Angefangen hat alles mit einer Ibanez JSM 100, das Scofieldmodell, das originale.
2006 kaufte ich eine ganz normale ES-335 in VS. Nun habe ich seitdem versucht, herauszufinden was wohl die absolute, ultimative Wahnsinns-335 sein würde. Ich spiele hauptsächlich Jazz, aber auch Rock, Blues, Bluesrock etc. Die 335 ist die variabelste Gitarre der Welt und den Spagat, den dieser Gitarrentyp hinlegt ist schlichtweg einzigartig. Also wollte ich nichts anderes als die beste 335 der Welt. 2014 habe ich dann noch die damalige Larry Carlton 335 gekauft. Übrigens eine Wahnsinnsgitarre.

Nach einigem Sparen war es nun soweit und ich holte die 1959er, die bereits optisch auf den Bildern zum Niederknien hübsch ist. Ich war verliebt vom ersten Moment an.
Als ich die Gitarre auspackte, war ich völlig begeistert. Das Finish ist sehr geschmackvoll geaged, ohne dass Ecken fehlen oder wirkliche Kratzer vorhanden wären. Damit konnte ich mich anfreunden. Ich spiele den ersten Ton auf der tiefen E-Saite am siebten Bund und:
es sirrt und surrt, dass ich sofort wieder zum Umtauschen fahren wollte. Ich versuch es am zehnten Bund: es surrt am 5. Bund: es surrt...

Es ist unfassbar. Die Gitarre kostet richtig dickes Geld und irgendwo in den Tonabnehmern oder im Korpus gibt es Vibrationen, die sich aber tatsächlich auch auf den elektrischen Ton auswirken. Also nicht nur rein akustisch im trockenen Betrieb.

Ich habe mich beruhigt, eine geraucht und dachte mir o.k., meine 2005 ES-175 hat gesurrt, das selbe Geräusch, meine 2006er L-5 hat nach einigen Monaten gesurrt, das selbe Geräusch, meine 2007er Super 400 hat nach Monaten ebenfalls gesurrt.
Nur meine beiden 335 haben das nicht.

Ich habe dann die 1959er an den Amp angeschlossen und siehe da: ein warmer runder vollmuniger Ton erreicht mein Ohr. Ah ha klingt schön, aber gar nicht so viel anders als meine 2006er 335. Also habe ich abwechselnd die eine und dann die andere gespielt. Der Unterschied ist absolut marginal. Die 1959er ist einen Ticken weicher auf der hohen e-Saite, was aber vermutlich noch nicht mal an den Tonabnehmern sondern an dem doppelt so dicken Hals liegt. Die Dicke des Halses beeinflusst den Ton der Gitarre enorm. Der Punkt ist der: Wenn die 1959er so klingt wie das Original für um die 40.000 Stecken und die 1959er aber nicht viel anders klingt als meine 0815 335 aus 2006 dann klingt meine 2006er 335 wie eine 1959er für um die 40.000 ?.

Der klangliche Unterschied ist wirklich ernüchternd gering. Ich wage zu behaupten, dass 90% der hier vorhandenen Gitarristen überhaupt keinen Unterschied vernommen hätten und schon gar keinen der irgendwie ins Gewicht fällt. Da frage ich mich doch, wozu der ganze Blödsinn mit Vermessung und Research, Rolled Binding, Hide Glue Konzept etc. Das ist doch alles so was für'n ...

Nachdem ich keine Lust habe 5 balkongroße Riesen für eine klirrende Gitarre hinzulegen, die, selbst man das wegbekommen würde, nicht großartig anders klingt als meine 335 aus 2006,ging die optisch mehr als gelungene Gitarre zurück.

Gibson schafft es somit nach über 30 Jahren des Gitarrenspiels immer noch mich zu enttäuschen. Irgendwer sollte denen mal wirklich in den Verlängerten treten. Deren amerikanische Arroganz ist angesichts der gebotenen Qualität nur noch lächerlich.

Das Instrument ist vom Klangbild sehr gut. Die Bespielbarkeit optimal. Eine super Vintage-Gitarre. Was Gibson da baut ist absolut der Hammer. Da ein Original bei ca. 40000,00 EUR liegt ist der gezahlte Preis wirklich angemessen. Die Gitarre ist nach Vergleich mit dem Original (so gut wie) identisch. Ein wunderbares Instrument.

Nearly impossible to intonate .Needed to reverse 5 saddle to make intonation acceptable, from there my 2 starts for quality . I also do not understand why Gibson writes Custom Buckers, which are normally Alnico 3 and this can be found on Gibsons webside..But after opening de guitar, on the back of the pick-ups is written BB1 and BB2.
I strongly recommend to put Gibson Pure Nickel strings. Those change completely the tone.More bass,more treble but very subtile and more sustain and overall warmer sound.

Got the guitar Delivered late , but was worth the wait. Right off the box i wasn't over delighted as it looked way too flashy, over time with slight wear and tear the guitar's true beauty is starting to pop out.
Appreciate the Gibson's aproach on moving out of the box with the looks, its beautiful in person.
Tone is great, does everything you want it to do. The more you mess around the more you unlock, this again depends on your hands, mind, pedals and what amp you are running into. ( What i wish it should have had was a coil tap, that would have been a real game changer.)
Keeping her in tune is a bit of a hassle but then again you realize things aren't suppose to be that perfect.
The back neck of the guitar isn't that smooth, something you will have to compincate for the sleek and superbe feel in the front.
Components used in the Guitar are top the class.
Overall a sweet guitar which sings and roars when asked. Thomann did an excillent job with the delivery, you can't beat the price that this store offeres elsewhere.
