    In the past my brother had a ES-335 style guitar from the 60s or 70s. I believe it was Italian made. The defining feature of the guitar is that it had 6 large control knobs around the lower edge of the guitar body following the contour of the body, a volume and tone for each pickup. For the life of me, i cannot remember what it was or find a picture of this guitar anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Sounds more like a Harmony H59 Rocket to me, but those are single cut. They do have a row of six large knobs following the contour of the body, though...

    BAM! It is the Harmony. I knew it was hollow, went on a limb with the 335.
    Thanks!

    I can't imagine wiring that, through the F holes!
