Yeah, I'm the guy who was jonesin' for a 335 a month ago. I just played a real tele through my Princeton Reverb. It was like taking a blanket off the amp. I've been using my Epiphone ES-335 Pro's bridge split coil-style. I had never played a "real" tele (Fender or otherwise) through it until yesterday. Man 'o man... Please PM me if you have a mid-line Fender or a well-modded copy that you are willing to part with. Sale or trade-for-the-Epiphone+cash. Wear and tear doesn't bother me. 'Probably not an SX unless it's cream-your-pants good. My Epiphone 335-Pro was purchased mid-2016 for $390 with a case. It was (is) a blem. For some reason, the guitar has a small screw hole in it. It's my only guitar and gets constant use. 'No big belt rash, but lots of fingerprints. What can I say? It's not new. The picture makes the screw hole look bigger than it is, but it's there nonetheless. I look forward to hearing from you.
