A Masterpiece

I have been playing guitar for over 40 years and I feel compelled to say that this may be the finest instrument I have ever played. I currently own a Gibson ES335 Studio 2014 model and I have owned, over the years, Fenders, (still own 2), Guild acoustic and electrics (had a sweet 60's Bluesbird) and various other guitars, this one rises above the rest.This guitar is extremely lightweight and has a resonance I don't recall ever feeling in any electric guitar that I have ever played. You can feel it in your left hand, the vibrations just travel up the neck in a way I don't recall ever experiencing in the past.The build quality is top notch and the tones produced by the humbuckers are clean and detailed, great string to string clarity. The 335 is going on Ebay, this guitar is a keeper for life.Highly recommend this instrument, beautifully crafted and a pleasure to play, frankly I can't find a fault.

Received my Montreal Premiere about a week ago and haven't put it down. It is my first semi-hollow body; I generally gig with a Strat and Les Paul. The guitar is very lightweight, but very well constructed. It has a comfortable neck with a fairly flat fretboard. I have been playing the guitar through an old blackface Fender Pro Reverb and an Egnater Tweaker. It has its own voice that is very articulate. It does not sound like a Gibson semi-hollow body, but it you want that sound buy an ES-335. I have found many usable sounds from all 3 pickup configurations; it will cover a lot of ground musically. I can't wait to gig with this guitar.
Music background: Playing more than 40 years. Currently in a rock cover band.
