    I have been playing archtops for a few years now and have been wanting a really good Gibson for quite a while. Yesterday that wish finally came true when I brought this 1952 ES-350 home. It's an amazing guitar with really thick and rich sounding P90 pickups. I play mostly blues, swing and faux jazz and this guitar can cover it all. This will definitely be ending my GAS (for a while).

    Wowsers, that's a beauty! IMO, there is no better tone than a big ol' hollowbody and P-90s -- just ask this guy:

    The cat's all like "WHY YOU HAZ NEW PETZ?!???!!" Then it snorted some more catnip and robbed a liquor store.

    But at least you still have a badass guitar. I'm digging the bit of flame that's on there. Really makes it look nice.
