    Why Gibson doesn’t offer a standard 335 with P90s is beyond me...

    I present to you, my new to me Luther Dickinson 335. I don’t know his playing from Adam, but a 335 with low wound alnico II P90s and a bigsby might as well be my signature guitar. Clips incoming of course.

    Nice... there’s all that you need in a 335 :).
    Luther is the man. Super blues player, both acoustic and electric, a real student of the blues when it comes to classic styles like Delta or Piedmont. Great slide player, and cigar box too.
    He could sound like R.L.Burnside or Clapton when he needs to, definitely my favorite modern blues player.

    Awesome guitar, Luther is great you should check him out North Mississippi Allstars is a fun band. The Shake hands with shorty album is a personal favorite of mine. Enjoy!

    60s slim with a hair of extra width. Wish it were a 50s neck carve but not a deal breaker.

    I love this thing!

    Absolutely gorgeous!

    Just curious...Is it hollow like a 330, or is it blocked down the middle?

    Gorgeous! Hard telling what goes on in the minds of those running things at Gibson. One of their best guitar bodies with one of their all time best pickups. What more could you ask for?

    You had me at slim taper...

    Now I really may need to look into one of these. Fortunately, I imagine it's out of my price range. Or unfortunately.

    Yeah, I see it is a model from about 5 years ago. Quick check found one on Reverb for $2400. I could sell 5-6 guitars and get one...

    What is the weight of it?
