  • 335 maple or mahogany neck?

    What is the neck construction of the 60's Gibson dot neck 335's?? What would be the tonal differences between a mahogany or maple set in neck?

    As far as I know 335s have only been made with mahogany necks.

        This ^

        Generally speaking maple is brighter and snappier sounding than mahogany. Mahogany is warmer with

        a singing and kinda dark midrange and softer attack. But I have a 335-style guitar with a mahogany

        neck that is really bright sounding.

            Oh young Padawan.



            There was a period from the early to mid 70's to the early 80's where you could only get maple necks on ES guitars, the Dot Reissue in 1982 was the return of the mahoganey neck, but only for that model. Gibson maple necks were a three ply laminate on thos ones, with a volute.

                335s in general are snappy I find with a sort of hollow midrange. The 339 I'm babysitting is quite bright.

                        Since I' posting from my wife's iPad I'm having trouble with c/p, but do an image search for 1979 ES335. All I see is maple, all I sold at that time were maple.
