til the next GAS attack starts to torture me

After all the trouble with the PRS which was almost impossible to sell I received today this unbelievable beauty : A 1994 OBG 335 in crazy near mint condition.It is hard to believe,but she is almost like brandnew,except some minor scratches on the pickguard.Even the back has only one or two small marks as she has never been played.What looks like dings on top of the headstock are only reflections,she is really almost mint.Thanks again to Tom,she is even better as described
And here we go :








Or for much better pics from the seller : http://s170.photobucket.com/albums/u265/Bandini1970/Orville%20By%20Gibson%20ES-335/

Congratulations Timo, a stunner!!

I am happy you like her so much because I just bought a similar one, a 1995 model also in mint condition and I can't wait for her to arrive.

What sort of music style do you use her for?

What other guitars do you compare her with? Any other ES's?

Cheers,

Joop

Hi Joop
Sorry for the delay,I just came back from holidays yesterday.Congratulations to your Orville,she's gorgeous and I hope you already have her.For me it is the first ES and I still have an OBG Les Paul from 93,so they are not really comparable.I do not use the guitar for a special style,especially as I started guitar playing 2 years ago and still have to find my style but I mostly play older bluesy ZZ Top stuff and Waitin for the bus or just got paid sounds really nice with this ES through my little tube amp.
