Same. I’ve got two projects on the go as it is. And one of them is my old Epiphone 335, which is in a state of undress.
Blimey - that looks in a state of undress. What are your plans?
I’d like a 330 or casino next.
A 330 would be the ultimate but they're even harder to find than a 335... @rickster's is the best guitar I've ever played...
The plan is to strip all the poly finish and sand it. Then it needs a repair to the fretboard where it’s come away from the neck at the top, and maybe some work done on the frets. I haven’t decided yet, but I might refinish it with Tru Oil. Then it’s going to get new pickups, hardware and wiring.
Probably all a bit OTT for an old Epiphone, but it has sentimental value for me as I got it for my 21st back in ‘98. It’s an early Korean model and it plays very nicely, so it should be half decent when I’m done with it.
This’ll do nicely. Someone lend me thee grand?

Transformer arrived, this thing doesn't disappoint... Less splashy and sustainy than my Twin but I really love it... The lead channel isn't quite to my taste, bit mushy and Boogie-ish, much like the Ice Cube trick you can do on the reverb/vibrato channel of a Twin...
Super happy!! Great size, only had it up to 3 and that was super loud, will work great as my gigging art rock amp... Will be getting a flight case for it... Now I need to find an art rock band!
Such a cool amp, love it.
If you ever see a cheap one, grab it!
You'll see I'm using my generic settings, everything dimed apart from the master volume... 🤪
Ha! You're so extreme!
My default setting is 6 for everything because 5 is too middle of the road.
It is awesome. Where's the channel switch? Is it a pull-pot thing?
I actually did a gig last weekend. Acoustic duo thing with my buddy Junkpile Mat. Tim the drummer came down too, now we're on the hunt for a bass player... getting there.
I've got a millennial 335 dot too - i replaced the tuners and pickups a few years ago. Always hated the black gloss finish tho - very interested to see how this turns out.
Wow - that sounds great.
I don't know a lot about these, is there any worry of sanding through the plys on the top if you're taking it all the way back with a clear finish?
Just came across these from Lowden - outrageously pretty
I'm looking for a guitar tutor and came across this guy's website. It's magnificent, featuring such gifs as
i learnt how to shred just by looking at this gif.
I just picked up my Stratocaster and discovered my frets have become scalloped after I opened this gif in the vicinity of it.
Yeah, I’ll need to be careful not to sand through the top layer, that wouldn’t look good at all. More of a worry is causing the ply to de-laminate by being hamfisted with the heat gun, but all ok so far.
Needs more Joe.
Stick pictures up of this as you go, I'd be really interested to see them - I've not seen many 335 projects around.
@izzymitchi on IG, do it...
My Les Paul through the Super Champ's lead channel is pure Marshall awesomeness... Was not expecting this, maybe I should flog the ghetto stack!!? 🤯
Is that still with everything on 10? including reverb?!
Is it Fender tone stacks that just cut and have no boost?
Not nearly as cool as a Super Champ, but just dragged out my own Rivera-designed combo to check it still works. 1981-ish Yamaha G100-112, all tranny, about 45lbs (oof) of very very loud and surprisingly warm cleanliness. Two channels, pull fat/pull treble, 3 band EQ plus parametric, quite nice long pan reverb. Cost me £75 without a speaker. Currently has a Deltalite 2512, this could be improved...
I never realised Jay Graydon and Dean Parks were involved too...
