8) i think just buying an edwards 335 or tokai 335 will simply do your request great. What I?m looking for is an instrument from the late 70s to the early 90s. I tried a Tokai ES100 that was great, but this particulat guitar had a twisted neck... Tried a Burny (335) that I did not like at all. Neve...

335

My next guitar will be a 335.

I?ll probably go for either a Greco, a Tokai or an Orville by Gibson.

- I prefer thin necks over fat ones.
- I prefer a thin body over a thick one.
- I prefer a lighter instrument over a heavy one.

Wich brand would be the best choice?

I?ve got a photo flame Orville LP Standard ( http://www.tokaiforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=13417 ) and it?s a fantastic instrument in every respect. Exept for the looks that is. The photo flame looks horrible in real life... Still there is as much solid mahogany and solid maple as in the ones without ve...

Hi, El Polifemo Semms to be an all original Guitar, except the strap-pin at the upper cutaway, not sure about the speed-knobs. Very strong cherry color! The specs seem to be the same to my Orville LP Junior, so I think you?re right. Please show some pics from the back of your guitar & headstock (se...

Jr Double Cut

Having bought a great Orville Les Paul 10 months ago I received my Greco LP Jr Double Cut yesterday. The guitar has one P90 in the bridge position and is as light as a feather.
