I see Kerry Brown is from Squamish. Beautiful area.
Shreddy is in Kelowna I think it is called, and Kerry is in Squamish. Both are super nice guys.
Kerry has shown us pics of Squamish, yes very beautiful
i liked the es-339...until i played one...then realised the neck access isnt anything like an SG
I guess an LP or an ES 135 175 isn't your thing then, everdying.
The best "substitute" for a Gibson 335 style guitar is the Epiphone Casino. I have two Casinos and if someone wanted to trade a Gibson 335 for one of my Casinos, I would say, "No." The Casinos are that good. And darn cheap in comparison to a $3,000 Gibson 335. The Standard Casino goes for just 450 bucks!
I can go on and on about how great these guitars are. The proof really is in the fact that I have two of them. So darn great that I just could not own one.
That's how I feel about my Riviera P93.
It's my favorite to play right now.
I love my SG’s. I am very fortunate to own three of them, and I carefully searched, saved and acquired them over a span of many years. No impulse buys, no buy/sell. When I found the ones I wanted I locked them in. I can’t really foresee me selling them unless perhaps circumstances required me to.
That said, I have always had a spot for semi hollows in my music room. I just love the sound, the warmness, the look. Ugh, those curves. But most of all, above tone, the reason I pick up my Sheraton the most is because sometimes you just need a guitar that hugs you back.
Throwing a 335 on my knee and wrapping around it is so fulfilling. SG’s are fast and light and built for tone and carry great mojo. But the 335 just has swagger.
I like my Epiphone Casino,
The 2020 Riviera is available, cool guitar
There is a certain something about playing a hollow body. This may sound odd, but a semi-hollow just seems more real than a solid body. A solid body is inanimate, while the hollow body is alive. I swear my Casino creaks every now and then. It really does. You hear the wood. It's a comforting sound. The guitar is alive. A living breathing thing.
A solid body is a slab of wood with a long neck attached to it. I love my Tele and Strat and SG...but they are tools. A hollow body guitar is a living, breathing friend.
Well that’s about as nice as they come!
Bob, I do not like RED, NORMALLY. Cars, Guitars, Clothes, LIPSTICK on women LOL, Nail Polish etc. But

If all goes well, I am looking to get an ES copy by Washburn
It is called an HB 30
There are more pics HERE and a review HERE on my website.
that’s a fantastic write up Bob.
Bob, do you mind if I share the write up link elsewhere with some other guitar fans?
Thank you kindly! So now the world knows why I converted from a Les Paul to an ES-335 as my main squeeze. It really is the centerpiece of my studio kit.
Not at all, thank you. It is meant to be shared.
By the way, more on-topic to this forum, I also reviewed a lovely Dave's Guitars 2016 Gibson SG Standard '61 Reissue Limited Edition on the site, HERE.
