    I recently acquired this 1999 Gibson Nashville ES-335 from Normans Rare Guitars. Awesome semi-hollow guitar that isn't too heavy at 8 & 1/4 pounds. It has the 60's slim neck and stock pickups. I tried 5 of them out that day, and this was the best sounding, lightest, and most importantly, blonde! I'm playing through a stock Carr Impala 1X12 Combo with only a Neunaber delay.

    He was in the band, but he kept asking, "Wha-key, wha-key?" And he was a gossiper, you know? So, we held a fake news conference to announce his departure. Sad. Very sad.
