    I decided to get myself a college graduation gift after I sold my vehicle. I only had 1 criteria: it had to be completely different than any other guitar I own. I've been listening to a lot of Rush/Alex Lifeson lately, so I went with a semi-hollow.

    This things plays and sounds great. Its got a Duncan 59 in the bridge and a Duncan Jazz in the neck, an ebony fretboard, a nitro finish, and a gorgeous flame maple front/back/sides. Even the neck has some figuring.

    Nice! A T486 is on my shortlist of guitars I'd like to purchase soon. Looks gorgeous. Can't wait to see more pics - or hear some clips!

    I'll try to record a short clip later today. I'll freely admit I'm a bit self conscious as I'm a bit rusty.
    I'm just here.

    Looks great! Can't wait to hear it.

    I'd love a clearer pic of that new headstock shape too, if you wouldn't mind.

    Here's the headstock and a very rough rundown of how it sounds. Enjoy!

    Well, my two favorite guitar players who use the ES-335 family are Eric Clapton and Alex Lifeson. It definitely influenced my decision

    Thanks!

    If you end up getting a T486, definitely play it first. The store I went to had this one and two T386s and I tried all three out. It took me about ten minutes to narrow it down to two, and another 30 to decide on this one. They're all so well built it takes a while to figure out which responds to the way you play.

    Nice score, Brody!
    I learned on a beat up Kent, so, I became kinda biased towards hollow bodies. I wanted a strat but I had this piece of junk, sorta thing. But the last decade I've heard quite a few nice ones. The tones they get are amazing. Yours sounds great, as well. Congrats!

    That is an absolutely stunning guitar. I am
    Not a fan of 335 type bodies but it does look good.

    That lanyard on the white guitar, moving on its own, is freaking me out a bit.
