Yes, but more interesting is, that they together cover a superb tonal range. I once said a Panther and a Les Paul with 57 Classics are a very nice pair, but you also can replace the LP with a 335.
Being a 335 and Gretsch fan in one person, you will absolutely love the Panther ... if not, I would be very astonished.
Totally. My Panther doesn't sound anything like a 335, it sounds exactly like a Gretsch in a comfortable and high-gain friendly package.
"High-gain friendly" is a good keyword ... the Broadkaster doesn't have a center block, right?
Yes, it does.
Could the PG interviewer be any less in formed or pay less attention to the interview?
I don't like the tension roller bigsby. Otherwise it looks cool
The Panthers and Broadcasters are both center block guitars; I'm not sure why the Broadcaster needs a Bigsby extension bar?
I like the white w/black pick guard.
I'm sure it needs a tension bar due to a different neck angle. I also dislike the bridge.
The bridge on the Broadcaster has no wood base, so doesn't sit as high off the guitar top. A tension bar is therefore needed to provide a decent break angle behind the bridge.
Yes but, if it is any consolation, they still have the white here:
By the way, that Flagstaff Sunset Panther is gorgeous; you can still get one at Elderly Instruments.
I'd love that Flagstaff one,its even more beautiful in person!
A pinned, wooden base bridge makes no sense on a centerblock guitar. The posts going into the centerblock should work better.
Yes, and it's the most rare, but all are still available, white, black & red. The limited red one though is pretty hard to find already.
The thing I appreciate about the ES335 design is the easy generous access to the upper frets. I'm sure you l Ike that on the Panther as well.
Like I said, I got my red beauty.
Hmmm - have you or anyone else tried out these Fulltron pups ??
Didn't we have a dedicated thread about that question already, with the result, that noone was able to try them so far?
My Flagstaff Sunset Panther with Setzer Sigs, Tru-Arc Titanium Serpentune bridge and a Paul Setzer custom solid red tortoise pickguard, one of the best guitars in my Gretsch collection:
