    This is "The String Butler", an easy and inexpensive add-on that changes the geometry of the strings as they go through and behind the nut to greatly improve tuning stability. I have this also on my Les Paul. They work very well!

    I didn't think my 335 purchase all the way through. Turns out it's on the other side of the country and probably been in the back of a Fed Ex truck for 4 days in below zero temps. I keep telling my self they use heated trailers.

    Let it sit inside for a day before you open it. Before all the "you don't have to"s start, I'll tell you this. Anyone who tells you that you don't need to wait will not be there to bail you out if you open right away and have problems. I think the smart thing to do is err to the side of caution and wait a day. Let the debates continue.

    It came in yesterday, I did give it a few hours to acclimate and all seems good.
    It's not as nice as some of the others pictured here but it is in better shape than I was expecting, not a scratch on the back (I'll take care of that I'm sure) and it plays and sounds amazing. It's supposedly a 2004. What kind of pickups are in these? I don't plan on changing them they sound awesome, just curious.

    This should hold me over for a while or at least till axe starts a 175 thread anyways

    Good ones are amazing, and I've never heard a non-gibson do it, but they don't all do (actually not many) ' that thing ' , it's low-fi, it's fat and it's 3d.
