    The guitar on the left in your photo has a bridge pickup that is turned around 180 degrees so that the pole pieces are closer to the neck. This may or may not be the original condition of the pickups, but clearly the guitar on the right does not have the bridge pickup rotated 180 degrees.
    That's all of them. Very observant bunch. I didn't notice the upside down pickup for at least a week after I got the guitar.

    Just joined the club with a 65/66 ES-330. Delightful to play, hold and stroke. All original save the tuners and headstock repair mod (they should just break and repair at the factory and save us the trouble). I'd post an image if I could.

    I've heard that some old vintage sounded better as it was with same type of gauge strings and set up untouched and then you get some that tweaks and sets them up to their liking and gauge of strings and all that sounded even way better or maybe the opposite so they try to bring it back to original state. Dunno as i haven't own a vintage piece before , although I almost did and missed out on a mint '61 SG Custom.
    When I got it, the strings were SIT (Stay In Tune), and they certainly did NOT live up to their name. They sounded fine, but I was worried about if tuning would be an issue. I installed a set of Ernie Ball Cobalts and the guitar stayed in tune better and tone is explosive. I'm not that concerned about originality in strings, I just use what I like. But, I can say without reservation, I love this guitar!

    Thanks for the reply Steve! That is fine 345 you got there. Sure looks like you been playing it since it's first birth

    I haven/t dabbled in Vintage instruments as of late, but my one miss that wasn't meant to be was an original 1961 SG Custom all stock.
    The more I lurk in the vintage area the more I am super drawn in to the history and vibe. One day!

    When there's not much else to do during the weekends nowadays, I did a little video with my ES.

    Re: Love ES's

    I dropped out of the guitar market around 3 years ago, and did not follow the bankruptcy of Gibson, the closing of their Memphis factory, etc. This Coronavirus outbreak is causing a disruption to manufacturing and sales throughout the U.S. Have any 1964 ES-335 Reissue's been made in 2020?
