    Hello,

    I've been a strat player since i started in the early 90s but It recently occurred to me that i just had to have an Epiphone 335. Was fortunate to get one for Christmas and here I am.

    A little bit about me: I used to do the band thing in the 90s/early 2000s but in 2003 all of my gear except my partscaster was stolen so had to take a forced hiatus from playing due to budget constraints and trying to support a family. In 2010 I decided to pick it up again and rebuilt my partscaster and got a Mustang amp to have something to noodle on. I've never had any experience with Epiphone products but i'm very impressed with the quality of the 335 Pro. Was not expecting it to be this good. I still love my strat but its going to be a while before i put down the 335. I guess when the strats start peeing on the carpet it will be time to give them some attention again.

    Welcome in chont. Pull up a chair and stay awhile but before you sit down, pictures are required.

    Thanks... and oops... forgot to post the pics. I posted these on another thread but this is probably a more suitable place. I do need to get a better shot though. Photographer I am not.

    Hi

    I’m a recent new member too, so welcome onboard. I joined the forum because the 335 pro is next on my wish list! Gotta to say yours looks gorgeous.

    Welcome to Epi-Talk. It's good to be on Santa's "nice" list. That's a beautiful 335.
