Not sure if they are still making my model, it's one of the rare solid top falcons, the rest are laminates.

Ron Thorn sums it up: “The Electric Spanish guitar’s airy vocal ‘cluck’ seems to only be obtainable through laminated builds. In addition, their reluctance to reach the ‘non-musical’ undesirable feedback point is usually a welcome feature. Stability-wise, cross-grained ply glue-ups formed into an arch yield a very strong result."

I'm a believer in terms of having laminates on a 335, also i prefer round lams in fender boards.

odd that he associates that to the laminates, dont think you get some of that ES's sound in other guitar brands. Maybe its unique to gibson

Just to point out that laminates have it s place, although tbh I didn't try enough to judge. tongue.gif

But you're right about 335 has its own thing going, Collings semis never sounded the same to me. And all those smaller semi bodies like 339, never sounded any where near.
