    ive always wanted a ES335 style guitar. i played this one for about 45 mins at guitar center before i decided on it. i tell ya im real impressed with the sound and finish for the price. only thing i hated was the lack of binding on the fretboard. that added touch can really spruce up a guitars looks. but epiphone doesnt typically put binding on the dots. there was a few special editions that slipped through via musiciansfriend.com. i wanted a epi les paul with a sunburst of some sort but it was out of my price range at the time ($400) this was a great compromise. it has a really nice flame top and the pups sound pretty good and get the sound i was goin for. i just have one photo of it that i took with my cell. quality is crappy but its just a lil pic to show it off. i took the pickguard off because i think the epi pickguards look bulky...

    Very nice. I've always liked those guitars too. I love the tone Eric Johnson gets from his, makes me wish I had one. Nice score! :hbang:

    This guy (Mike Graff):



    Gets some pretty slick tones out of those style (though he's a Gretsch player) guitars.
