In Topic: Troubles at Gibson?

Just found out that Gibson won't be at NAMM this year.  Bad signs all around...

I like the body but not crazy about the green neck.

The green isn't as bright in person.  It shows up REALLY green in pictures.

 

 

I would've never guessed that color combo was Gibson!  I know that on different boards, 339 players give it high props (I don't recall ever playing one).

Someone mentioned that it was like the PRS Blue Whale.  I've never seen a Blue Whale before but I fell in love with this top immediately.  It is a GREAT playing guitar.

 

 

How much different does it sound over your 335?

It isn't a huge difference, but the 335 sounds more hollow (if that makes sense).

Why doesn't Gibson do a commercial using you and all your guitars...

Thanks Ron.  I've been promising the Gibson rep a picture of all of them together.  I thought that I would have time over the holidays but I didn't.

 

 

Do you rotate your guitars or do you have just a couple of regulars? .. such a cool collection

I have an Excel spreadsheet that helps me keep track.  It also records the time I have on the strings for string changes.  I have a HUGE string change day coming up soon... :)

 

 

Another gorgeous new guitar to the collection, Ben. Beautiful figured top. And I really like the size of the 339's.

Thank you!  I really like the 339 size too.  It is a bit more comfortable than the 335, 195, 135, & 175 but a similar sound.

I'm pretty sure that is his Valley Arts Brett Mason Signature Telecaster.
