Today I got a new webcam and I've recorded some guitar noodling with my ES335 over a backing track...

The audio quality is AWFUL but I think that you can get an idea of the SM's sound ;)

I promise that I'll record a new clip with better audio sound (and playing...;D)

ΥΓ: Sorry of all you ZZ-Top lovers out there... :-\

A nice version of 'Blue Jean Blues' there Elavd !  :D

Lovely tone and playing.  I noticed that the bass and treble strings sounded nicely balanced - I assume you have either got them set up differently now, or are digging into the bass strings a bit harder.  Your demonstration of the AIV Stormys has made me look forward to playing my S.G. loaded with them ( when the house decorating is done ).   

Nice one ...  8)

That was awesome man! Sounded fantastic, are you still debating over the new pickups?
I thought the tone was superb.

I did both ;)
I lower the bass side of the pickups and got the 3 pole screws under the bass strings a little higher.
I think that they sound more "spanky" now ;)

I now have recorded another take of Blue Jeans Blue, with better audio quality (using my Tech-21 Trademark 30 amp).

You can hear the neck pickup first, then both pickups and then the bridge ;)

The audio quality is better, my playing is worse... 8)

That's a great sounding ES-335!

VERY sweet, acoustic and mellow.
