This arrived today. After driving it around the block for a few hours I'm very impressed. This model is new for this year, no neck binding as were the early, first year '58 es335's. At 8.5lbs it feels good to me, not featherweight and not heavy, hangs well on the shoulder. Nice neck at .92 at the first fret and 1.04 at the 12th. Color and finish have a really nice look and feel. I've been a finisher for nearly 50 years, I'm not easily impressed. The Rosewood fingerboard is very dark with hint of red now and then. The new MHS pickups really shine. They can be clear and focused and with a turn of the knob will get up and sing. All the pickup selections shine. Like I mentioned earlier, I'm very impressed. Thumbs up for the Memphis shop for this one.
