  • Gibson 335?

    Any of you guys own one? Would you consider one if you played mainly hard/heavy rock?



    I love the look and feel of the semi-hollows but don't have enough experience with them to know if they would suit my style of music.

        They can feed back pretty bad if you're playing high gain loudly.



        Like at shows.



        If you're just playing with yourself in your room at night you should be ok.

          They dont feedback as much as people thing, especially the modern ones, they're semi hollow and that block down the middle is what helps feedback.



          They're awesome for anything.

            I own one but I don't play hard rock. it's a semi-hollow so it won't feed back as much as a true hollow body. Ted Nugent rocked a real hollow body and I like his stuff.



            For the record, I own Gibson Les Pauls, SGs and other guitars more suited more for hard rock. I can honestly say that the playability and tone of my ES 335 is second to none. From chimey cleans to over driven tube blues riffs, this is my go to guitar.

              Mine did.



              To the point that I never played it. It got sold.



              I was trying to run it thru a Trainwreck clone...as soon as the volume came up, WAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH.....

                Sounds like a bit of a fault :/ Mine works fine, guess they're all different though, could be pickups etc.

                  One of the best 4 guitars that ever existed, used in pretty much every application. They'll do anything you throw at them.

                  So yes, get one.



                  Not a 335 exactly but similar:




                  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIDqlTnFsK8







                  Same guy with "real" 335




                  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E10Olxb7zNE





                  Clapton




                  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djRAF_ph3TQ







                  And there are lots of players who play hard rock stuff on 335s/355s like for example Alex Lifeson and Joe Bonamassa.

                    Chris Cornell and Dave Grohl seem to do just fine with them and I also use mine for hard rock.

                            I heard someone say that you can make a 335 sound like anything, but you can't make anything sound like a 335. That's about right.

                              I picked an Epi dot when they first came out for a back up beater, but it gets used alot and can do everything from Sabbath/Ozzy or heavier just fine.



                              Added plus you can get it to feedback easier than a LP or SG, but it's not a problem even at high gain.
