I bought a used Epiphone ES 335 Pro on Saturday via a trade in. What an excellent guitar! I'm shocked at the quality, it seems as nice as my Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro II.<br /> <br /> The previous owner replaced the "E" logo pickguard with a plain black one. The guitar came with a very nice HSC too.<br /> <br /> The 335 has 11's on it, but still plays really well. I prefer 10's on shorter scale guitars, but I'm leaving the 11's on for a recording project that's very jazz oriented.<br /> <br /> Who new? (:oD

Congrats!<br /> <br /> I think that E was a sticker and peeled off. At least it was on my Dot.

Yep, nice guitar. My "e" peeled off quickly. I'm getting around to putting together a track in the vein of Crossroads just to feature this guitar.

Well then maybe the "E" was peeled off.<br /> <br /> littleuch - I can now see how Clapton played those Crossroads solo parts in the key of A way up the neck due to the access provided by the 335. It's harder to play those notes on a Les Paul.

It's good to hear that said. Some Epi'scan be a decent sub at a reasonable price.

Reading the OP I though yep, the E fell off just like my Dot Deluxe. Great guitars for the price. Congrats and enjoy!

It's actually part of the Epiphone guarantee that the E will fall off within the warranty period. If it doesn't you can return it and they will remove it.<br /> <br /> But seriously, yes, they can be nice guitars. I've often considered one to pair up with my Sheraton, and maybe even keep a guitar that I haven't swapped the humbuckers out of!<br /> <br /> These Epis can have quite a harsh edge on the fingerboard, and one thing you can do to make it feel and play better is take some 600 grit paper on a block and sand the edges of the fingerboard to a rounder shape. You will be removing some fret end as well so go carefully, and re-angle the fret ends with the block, and smooth with a fret file. There should be plenty of room between the strings and the fret ends to do this safely.

I hear the 335 Pro's are much better quality and tone than the Dots.

The Ultra 339's aren't bad either.

Rob - Can I upload photos to the FDP by logging into the site using my iPhone (all recent photos are on the phone)? <br /> <br /> The whole transferring photos to my PC to upload is too much bother for me.

That's how I do it 5 strats, hence all the crappy pictures. I don't even own a computer.
