    This guy gives a pretty good demonstration of how versatile an ES 335 is.
    No! You can't have the keys to the wine cellar!

        I own that Stu-Mac tool as well as many others...

          They have a similarly invaluable tool for installing and removing tremolo springs, and "The Key" makes intonating Floyds a snap. I have an account with them, getting ready to order some stuff for one of the bass builds this weekend... great company.



          I really wouldn't want one...
          Me neither, since I basically make my own sig model.

              I've been using StewMac not "Stu-Mac" since 1988...

                I don't know why I thought that was right...

                I looked down and saw "StewMac" on an old catalog by my desk...

                  maybe it's the same burnt part of my brain that makes me prone to type incorrect words like "fluoride' and "comming"...

                    Can't remember when I first ordered from StewMac.

                    They're in southern Ohio, if I get an order in before 4 it's here the next day. Almost instant gratification, and I don't have to go all the way to Guitarget or Sam Ash.

                      Gotta love that. I get the same turnaround when I order bodies from KnE since he's in Riverside, the county next door to L.A. ... I went ahead and ordered all the small parts for the P/J bass build I'm working on from StewMac last night. Another cool thing about StewMac ordering, though - 2-day Air was just $10 more than standard, figured, why not? Stuff will show up at my office Wednesday instead of next Monday? Suuuure! What they DIDN'T have was a Hipshot Bass Extender Key (decided on that as a last-minute addition) for a non MIM Fender-sized peghole in black, so grabbed that off Fleabay (free shipping!)... & they don't have black BML tuners either; will get them from Warmoth when I order the neck (which will take 4-6 weeks to fabricate).

                      So hey, will basically have a P/Jhale667 signature bass soon.

                          I put a Gotoh 201B on this one, pretty sturdy. And I already found the schematic to do the 18v mod on the STC-3P.

                            It's similar to the John Lennon "Revolution" Casino from a few years ago, which features a sanded down and satin finish,removed pick guard, different pick ups and a dead stop tail piece. Essentially, it too is a 335 copy, but really tends to sound very bright and is prone to wailing feedback at times. Ted Nugent would love it, but for me it was just too hard to handle, and it had some ridiculous tuning issues. I bought mine used, and kept it for barely a month before unloading it.

                              Funny thing is, I watched the 2013 Rock n Roll Hall of Fame thing over the weekend and Cornell was there, playing with Heart on "Barracuda" and also in the finale on "Crossroads" and he was playing an ES-335, but it was black, definitely not olive drab green.

                              One would think this would have been a perfect opportunity to display his signature model (or does it come in more than one color?)

                                Coulda been a logistics thing... maybe Gibson hasn't delivered the prototype to him yet?
