I took a brief hiatus from some heavy gambling to film this little odyssey…this one goes out to Ray Dietrich…who changed the world forever in October of 1962…exactly 60 years ago…wow
Big thanks to all those who watch regularly and steal all my licks and concepts…use them in good health my friends.
Today’s amplification provided by Benson Electronics from Portland Oregon…the model is a very limited run of 3x10 tweed Bandmaster clones they recently made called a “Benmaster”
somewhat inconsequential side note:
from 3:04 to 3:06 is a good illustration of the kind of musical "telepathy" that can only come from one person...(the subconscious break in the rhythm in EXACTLY the same spot on both instruments)...that kinda shit fascinates me.

00:00 - Playing the 335
Well guys, the late 62/ early 63 block marker 335 with unopened factory PAF’s that i ordered on approval showed up today.
I swear i could already tell from just the few scant photos i saw of it that it had somethin’ special, and dammit if i wasn’t dead right.
As usual, upon opening the shipping box and the case for the first time, thousands of infantessimal calculations and observations took place in my mind…and they were all giving me a real nice warm feeling.
Every old guitar tells you a story when you hold it in your hands for the first time.
I love the way this one explained its life to me…its obviously been very well cared for, but it also clearly has a slightly naughty side that is ready to throw down any time.
Absolutely PERFECT neck profile…all of those zillion little things you look for add up beautifully when you look closely at this one…the balance…the smell…the evenness of the wear…the sustain…the acoustic vibe…powerful pickups…everything is just right.
Special thank you to Charlie Gelber at OK Guitars in Kent CT for the smooth ride. Basically all he deals in are old 335’s…and he literally has them all.
