    I really do believe that we need a photo thread of our beloved small semi hollows.

    Please post pictures of your guitars here, but know this: Since there are significantly more ES335´s out there they will have to create - or stick to - their own picture thread so we won´t be drowned with pictures of great and beautiful guitars that don´t belong here.

    Please heed this wish!

    Here´s my guitar, named "Shirin". A CS336 ordered in 2011 and delivered december 2012 after more than 12 months waiting. It´s the first electric - and the second guitar over all - I´ve ever owned. I´m planning to change the PU´s to a pair of Fralin P92´s, but due to being low on funds I haven´t yet done so.

    Wow … simply beautiful … & yes, in my opinion Fralin P-92s will be a great improvement over the '57's
    Luv the Maple fretboard … that's exceptionally cool!!

    Damn you guys!!! I played a 336 when they first came out. I remember it was solid top and resonated like warm milk...

    I'm thinking the 339 will be in my very near future.

    My 2007 ES-339, all stock, a great guitar. I love the 60's neck profile.

    Thanks for presenting eye candy of great guitars!! I hope there´ll be more pics over the weeks.

    Yes, my guitar has a maple fretboard. One of the perks with a custom order, is that it makes the guitar customized :)

    And I love the curly koa top on RCCola´s guitar. Is that modelled as a 356?

    Are there so few players of small Gibson semi hollows, that we so far only have six picture contributors?

    Come on; show us your guitars! Don´t be shy :)

    Threads like this never come up ...thank you! :D
    I LOVE my 336! As a tried-n-true solidbody guy, this is the hollow body guit for guys who don't do hollow-body guits. After some pup adjustments, man did I discover what a soulful tone machine these 336s are!

    BTW, how many have cream pup rings to match the binding, eh? eh? ;)

    Not to mention I love the open/wide grain of the mahogany back :D

    Oh Man Ed … that baby is a totally scrumptious yummy creature …
    Curious to know what pups you upgraded …
    I soooo loved everything about my 336 … but, as with most Gibsons, simply didn't dig the pups very much …
