I've gotten the green light to get one of these. Reviews have been uniformly excellent, and I've wanted a semi-acoustic for a while.

Problem is, I am feeling less materialistic than I have in my life. New 'things' really have no interest to me after the last 5 months. I don't 'need' any more 'things.'

Except a semi-acoustic guitar.

I was seriously considering buying another Telecaster (Well a HB Fusion T so not the same thing)

The drone cured me of all that. Now all I think about are batteries and accessories for the drone.

Yeah, I bet it's good. Just a bit much for 'retail therapy,' and I have 15 guitars.
Just not a semi. I sold an Artcore AS103NT a couple of years back because it was too bright, too much polyurethane, too heavy.

But, I think my 'retail therapy' will be an ARM iMac sometime this year.
And I'm in no shape to enjoy a new guitar right now, anyway.

I'll probably order one on Monday, knowing me.

Man I am really interested in one of these 335s. I had an american Epi Sheraton and loved it. I have also played some really good Asian Epiphones. Hope you get it soon and share your thoughts with us. The 335 shape is pefect for me. The wide waist really makes playing sitting down much more comfy.

you've (and your wife) have just taken one of the worst beatings life throws at us. it takes time to readjust to normality under normal circumstances, under the extra weird state of things at the minute...

plenty of time to get back on the lovely, lovely horse, with its


fetlocks blowing in the wind :singer:

no hurry, just enjoy the roses n stuff :tu:

Well the drone just got a lot more expensive. I lost control of it and it went into a marsh (swamp) and died.
