    1958 ES 335 & 2014 "Rich Robinson" ES 335

    Hello friends!


    Some time ago I shared video of my friend Phil Hurley playing and talking about his Les Paul Goldtops and comparing his hollow (and semi-hollow) body guitars.


    Last week we shot another video, this time showcasing an original '58 335. Phil and his bandmate Chris played the guitar and compared it to Phil's main guitar: a 2014 "Rich Robinson" 335.


    They both played the guitars through the same, custom Category 5 amps.


    The new video is available here:

    Great sounding guitars! I do think that the Rich Robinson pickups aren't as clear as the original PAF's, of course it could just be what the guitar's giving to the pickups and the older `58 had more clarity since the woods have dried and the Hide Glue has crystalized bonding the woods together.
    Thanks! BTW, the Rich Robinson is a wonderful sounding guitar! But it's 61 years old and the RR is only 5 years old..

    Thank you for the kinds words.

    Chris and Phil are a pleasure to work with. They know their stuff, they're generous and they can play​!
