Tonal EvaluationWowzers, this 335 knocked my socks off! I couldn't stop playing it, because its rich, warm tone was simply too inspiring! Overall, it has warm, woody, inviting bass response, a transparent midrange, and lots of sunny overtones in the highs. The bridge pickup has a little extra attitude in the upper mids to go with chiming highs and tight, snappy lows. The neck pickup has warm, clear, vintage-style bass response to go with sweet, singing highs. I dig this ES-335, and I'm sure you will, too!
