JVG Custom es335 Prototype Flame top BEFORE - finish ...WoW special high quality build to suit hand crafted beauty.... - BEFORE finish... ask|
Here we just completed a run and we will have 2 of these es335 - es347 flame tops prototype guitars stay tuned or better yet order yours now in your favorite burst. These will be 100% old school Nitrocellulose lacquer finished like glass and both of these are amazing flame tops built here in our JVG custom shop to surpass that of one of my all time favorites the vintage Ibanez as200 from 1978 or so the John Schofield signature es335... we have owned many vintage and modern Gibson es335's & es347's which were my heavy influences for which we studied them well and I make this feel like a smooth vintage guitar with its eased fingerboard edges this will be part of the overall treatment these prototypes will receive. I am a big fan of the vintage violin burst some of the old Ibanez guitars had as well as classic vintage Gibson even one of my monster 1990's Yamaha sa2200's this was my insparation. The body is the same as the Gibson es335 in that ours is also 3- piece laminated construction Curley flame maple top -poplar center and Curley flame maple back. We use all american electronics wiring CTS pots & switchkraft switch & output jacks and our high grade standard "Journeyman" model that comes loaded with one of our favorite PAF replica pickups made in Japan by Gotoh these are vintage correct and sound beautiful and we pair that with some real great tone capasitors for true vintage tone, these are some of the very same pickups used in top Japan for makers like Tokai, Greco, Burney, Orville, Fernandes, Yamaha and a few other top es335 makers back in the day, well Im a believer and I think you will be too when you see - feel and hear our es335 style offering... not yet finished as you can see so you have a chance to select a color burst and we can make your dream custom built es335 style guitar a reality...
