Milestone of guitar building

J.H.335, 28.01.2013
I got this ES-335, because I am a fan of this guitar first, and second, because the Thomann pictures convinced me completely. But not everything is as it seems:

First, what frowned at me:
(I) fastening screws of the tuners, which are not wholly turned into the wood;
(Ii) a Gibson logo on the headboard, which consists only of a sticker and not, as before, of individual letters;
(Iii) neither serial nor "Made in USA" on the back of the headstock;
(Iv) an FC (faded cherry), which is more like a bright red; and
(V) for a 'real' recovery (which means' reissue 'for me) of a' 63 ES-335, the neck is too thick;

But: the processing is flawless except for the above-mentioned defect (i). (Ii) has always been like this, I just have not noticed. Regarding (iii), I was told that this was the same way. To (iv) I hope that the color changes into the positive. To (v), I must confess that I am happy because I have big hands, the D-shaping of the neck is good for me in my hand and is pleasant to play. An ES-335 seems to be preferred because of its body size rather of large-grown guitarists.

The lacquer is impeccable, the Gibson-like fingerboard binding is always raised over the edges of the fretboard. The electrics, as expected, without complaint: Volume- and also Tone-Potis have a particularly effective effect on the last 3 units of their 10-part scale. This allows the amplifier input stage to be sent to the distorted range with small rotation.

Most importantly, the strings are set well. Here you have nothing to adjust. In addition, no rattling, from the deepest to the highest positions, all sounds sound clear and clean, and there are also no unwanted resonances from other parts, such as pickups or ABR-bridge. Nothing, except sound. Very good.

How it sounds is, according to the experience, more difficult to put into words. The expert knows, each ES-335 sounds different. Compared with the well-known 335s ('81, '87, '88, '09) my '63 reissue also sounds very acoustic: a bright sound with very well differentiable single notes. Since my musical direction is not (more) from Alvin Lee (Blues Rock), but rather from Jim Hall (lyric jazz), I first had some problems to get the 'right' jazz sound. But it goes: You can turn the heights almost completely away (there is still enough) and you get the jazz tone with the long sustain (eg John Abercrombie). Every tone stands and has power - evenly over the entire fingerboard - without failures or over-concrements. A balanced sound, acoustic as well as electric (getest with: Mesa Express, Fender Super 60, AER alpha). If you like it a little roughened (J.Sco), no problem. The guitar can sing and for the blues it was finally conceived (also) conceived.

The included black suitcase with custom inscription is sure to pick up the guitar, since nothing wobbles. As so often, so in my case: It does not matter to the Gibson people whether the red of the guitar fits the red lining of the suitcase or not. A black lining would have been optimal. Well, you can not have everything. On the flap (this cloth between guitar cover and trunk lid) one dispensed, there was in 1963 also not. The suitcase is, of course, classes more stable and handy than an original.

Who in the favorable position is to be able to choose between an ordinary ES-335 and a reissue, which should grab the reissue, even if it is almost twice as expensive. A good guitar remains a good guitar. It will be more enjoyable and therefore a profitable investment.

Conclusion: almost a must, not only for the guitar collector, a piece of guitar tradition for all sound demands in the usual Gibson quality.

The Voice!

All in finesse ...
Whatever the micro picked this guitar "sings"!
Harmonics and sustain galore.
One downside:
Impossible to leave it ... the amp will eventually heat up!
