Way back in 1969, my girlfriend was very supportive of me buying a Gibson ES 335. She made me lunch everyday so I wouldn't have to spend $'s and save for my guitar. I had a summer job bagging groceries and was making minimum wage od $1.65 an hour. I was 16. I ended up buying that new 335 at Sam Ash for $250.00. My dad told me that if I saved the $'s, he'd pay the tax and drive me to and from SA. Great deal and support. I married her. I still have that 335. Last Feb., Linda came with me to do a trade for a 1968 ES 335 in Pa. I did the deal. BTW, I'm Mr 335 junior if you didn't notice. Here's both 335's................. Any stories?
