Gibson dg-335 for buying

buy gibson dg-335 Review2

This guitar is the best guitar for my style of music. I play mostly punk/emo/screamo. You get a rich sound when you have distortion on it and you get a nice smooth tone when you play it clean.

buy gibson dg-335 Features: My guitar was made in August of 2010 in China, and it has 22 medium jumbo frets on a rosewood fretboard with a one ply-binding. The fretboard is adorned with Dot inlays and the neck has a 24-3/4″ scale length. It features a 1960′s slim-taper neck, but its still bigger than a Strat neck. The neck is mahogany and the back is not painted and allows for fast playing with little effort.

It has a maple/birch laminated top with an attractive cream racing stripe on a brown matte finish body. It has a Standard Gibson style hollow-body shape with cream binding all around.

The bridge is a Tune-o-matic, as is the stop bar. All the hardware is chrome, and I did notice a bit of “gunk”, or some residue on the stopbar..

All the electronics are passive, and it features one lone volume control potentiometer, topped with a matching cream knob. Standard Epiphone jack sometimes gets loose, as does the volume knob, but I have already fixed this. It has one pickup, a Gibson made dirty fingers humbucker. Its a monster, and has massive output. It has a great dirty crunch more akin to old rock records than todays over processed, over compressed hard rock sound.

Standard Grover tuners, though it stays in tune fine. The Epiphone strap buttons seem fine with my Planet Waves strap. Also came with the usual accessories; A crappy cable, truss rod wrench, and a box.
