I look for cross guitar ready to handle clean natural jazzy tone and nice smooth distorted rock sound.
I have checked Es137 and 335 and my filling is, that ES137 can do better jazzy tone on neck pickup (more air sounding) and also hardrock tone on bridge pickup sounds to me more fat and more responsive than on 335.
Is this only my feeling. Or do you also consider ES 137 way better in clean jazzy sound as well as les paul hardrock sound.
I checked, that central block of mahagony is just below bridge pickup and bridge. Not below the neck pickup - could be this reason for more spacier sound together with wider sides than 335?
