    I have played a lot of 335s and 335 variants. A good 335 shouldn't sound like a Les Paul. I think that a 339 gets pretty close but a good 335 should have the ability to play crystal clean and sweet in the bridge position with the volume turned down a bit and scream when opened. The great ones have clear sounding neck pups and no mud. I personally like the weaker pups too. Mine has pots that all work as they need to with differences in gradual adjustments. Its a stock Memphis guitar with a special ordered neck - basically a 59 LP shape.
