    Thank you.

    Yeah, I know about the p/u rings.

    I think they look cool.

    I'm not sure if the TP6 is stock.

    A direct retrofit for the original Gibson stopbar, the TP-6 delivers the ability to fine tune any string on your guitar in seconds. Micro-adjustment tuners and carefully crafted gears and saddles allows for smooth string movement and precise tuning ability. This OEM part is available in either Chrome or Gold finish.

    Thank you.

    If I can sell/trade 5 more guitars, I may look for another ES 335 (Cinnamin Burst; Sunburst or Figured Aquamarine:agreed:).

    A B3 Phoenix; Warrior Figured Isabella; Fano At De Facto SP6 or Teye Apache would be nice too.:hmm:

    You should accidentally buy left handed ES 335s and give them to me since you are such a nice guy.

    Thank you.

    I was tempted to trade for a Gibson Midtown Deluxe at the GC in Somerville, NJ with a more figured brown top, BUT, the deal breaker was a Richlite fret board.

    It played and sounded great but I just am too much of a cork sniffer.

    I am thinking about it though.

    The 335 bug is still in me.

    Maybe another?:rolleyes:

    The GC in Somerville, NJ also has a Gibson Chet Atkins in walnut.

    From what I remember, the CA has a mild pin striped grain.

    It's around the same price as the walnut 335 which was listed at $2299.99.

    I already have a wine pinstripped Gibson Chet Atkins.

    ++++++++++++++++

    I traded these for the walnut ES 335:

    Jimi Hendrix Strat.jpg

    I have about $1600.00in both the Firebird & Jimi.

    They are really nice guitars but I rarely used them.

    In the trade, to my surprise, GC included a new EH Oceans 11 pedal and gave me $80.00.

    It also helped that I know the salesman.

    I had both Firebird & Jimi on CL but I got tired of the silly hagglers and scammers.

    I blinked and did the trade with the devil.

    The knobs; tailpiece and p/u mounting rings were probably changed by the previous owner (John Krieger, brother of amp repairman Dennis Krieger)

    When I changed the strings, I noticed John's way of attaching them to the tuning key posts.:rolleyes:
