Had my two 335s side by side last night and noticed the difference in the positions of the switches(and also Volume knobs), checked with '50s/60s ones and they can be different too, quite took me by surprise.

Oh yeah, I see what you mean. They're a little bit different.

Btw, I like your taste in guitars! Beautiful. :)

Are your pickguards slightly different? The switch looks to be in the same place with respect to the "point" at mid-f-hole, but the pickguard appears to be located at different positions with respect to pointed feature. The guard on the tri-color burst seems further toward the tailpiece- look at where they line up on the binding in the pics. You can see the binding in the cut-away on the tri-color whereas the lead edge of the guard covers the binding on the other.

They all look fantastic!

Look where the toggle is with respect to the tailpiece. I see what you’re talkin’ about with the pickguards tho.

In relation to the stoptail piece, I guess it's about a 1/16th to 1/8th of an inch difference.

But look at the tail in relation to the f holes. Is the neck joint the same? If so, then the TP location is what moved.
