Semi Acoustic 335 Recommendations please

Postby skinnygav » Tue Apr 03, 2012 11:48 am

Hi all,

i'm looking for semi acoustic guitar recommendations, looking for a Chuck Berry type sound. Only requirements are that it fits in to the 'affordable' category and has a fixed bridge.

There are a couple I have on my list to try out, see below, does anyone else have any further recommendations/experiences good bad or otherwise?

1) Epiphone Sheraton
2) Tanglewood TSB59
3) Ibanez AS73

Thanks

You might be able to find an Epiphone Dot, which is their version of the 335. Casinos are like gold dust; rumoured to be the most requested left-hand guitar ever, Epi/Gibson discontinued them for 'lack of demand'. Idiots.

Epiphone Dot is a good shout and not that uncommon as they have only recently been discontinued.
If you go down the Sheraton route, bear in mind that it has a semi-hollow body so will sound a lot different.
I played one once and loved it.

thanks guys,

re Hagstrom, they look good but i am not sure about those tail peices, are they just going to be a recipe for tuning instability?

would like to try a dot, i keep an eye on ebay anyway but i'd like to play before buying ideally.
