    I was reading a discussion where people said they were retiring their les pauls for 335s because they're tonally similar while lighter and better upper fret access.

    That inspired my trying my Ibanez, I'm sold. Not getting rid of my les pauls but yeah, it's got all that fullness, while lighter and better upper fret access. Love it.

    I’m a Gretsch guy when it comes to semis. From the Streamliner series to the Prolines they are just the perfect guitars for me. I have a 335 my wife got me for Christmas 9 years ago that I love, but my Gretsches rule the roost.

    Try the Gretsch Streamliner 2622s. Fantastic semis, really inexpensive and play and sound amazing!

    Thank you, it was just a production guitar, no custom shop high falutin' build, but a nice one that made it out with the regular shmoes. I found it imperceptibly used for an amazing price once upon a time.
