Gibson 1963 ES-335 Block Reissue
Gibson es 335 block reissue, etc ...
Made by the custom shop ... Gibson? right?
If so it seems that it is super Gibson luthiers who are "in hand" these rolls.

Ben there will have to take remedial lessons the guys, because the work is weak ... See below.

UTILIZATION

Beautiful guitar
Very nice, but the paint on the model I tried was not deposited uniformly, making as "orange peel" on the lower body ... Bizarre ...
Tested through a stack Carvin: 2 microphones sounded hyper deaf .... That low, horrible!
Then I ask to try another amp: Carvin a fire, but the combo version and, phew hopefully the guitar sounds of the fire god.
HOWEVER ....
there is another "cosmetic" problem because at the head of the guitar, the two scrolls are not the same size. There are at least 5mm difference ... I can not believe my eyes ... I asked the seller, who had not noticed and as I see the difference ... It notes like me, there is a real asymmetry between the two scrolls of the head. It is still zero, when you love the Look gibson, it is also for the beautiful faces of these heads. Anyway you look at other custom models. Shop: 7 guitars 5 stores have this visual defect ... We look at the "normal" models: the heads are perfect. The seller defends Gibson highlighting the custom guitars are handmade, so it's normal. Damn, I can not believe my ears! It would be normal for a skyscraper in 4500 boulles less well finished than the standard? They do not know how to use a meter luthiers of Gibson? I dream, I am disgusted, I was ready to break the bank, but I'm sorry this is niet! I do not agree to the 4500 board, it must be perfect! The seller told me that for this price it is not possible, it must pass through the more expensive models in Gib, he sold it a few months ago a Les Paul made by luthiers stars Gibson it was a massacre this guitar but it was worth more than € 8,000 ... I swallow my hat, I strangled (I stop the discussion with the seller, we do not happen to be agreed ...

SOUNDS

57 classic pickups .... Great!
It's great, although I think it is rather very muscle for me who am accustomed to a telecaster (the opposite, but that's what is interesting) ...

OVERALL OPINION

A guitar custom shop should be FLAWLESS! And above 4500 € ... Some will think that I am very fussy and they are right. But 4500 € I'm entitled! So my conclusion is simple: given the guitars I saw the pitiful level of finish, I think it is primarily a catch galore allowing Gibson to maximize profits! Okay, that's their choice, and they still end up as Playel .... In any case it will be without me.
But see the bright side of things: I save my € 4,500 of the scam ... And I know a great luthier any vintage gibson from the USA ... With my € 4500, he told me to find myself a very nice and are in good condition (can not be a 335, but rather a 330 at that price ...). Who said that every problem there is a solution?
