Is that a 335 or something else.?
Note: Bruce Gary, formerly drummer for the Knack playing Tony Williams. Pretty cool.
And young Carla Bley.

Looks to be a Gibson ES-355TDSV with ebony fretboard. Look at the split diamond headstock to see the difference from the 335 and 345 markers. Also if you go to 6:31 in the video you'll see the round Varitone dial near the bridge.

even cheaper at twice the price.!

Not that I know that much about the physicality of electric guitars, I understood, back in the day, when the guitarist in the band went looking for a good, current model (1975?), Tele.

I get it on a solid body, but not so much on a semi or hollow like the 335.
Generally, wouldn't a current $3500 335 be reasonably close in tone to a "vintage" $12,500, 55 year old?

Since I've started playing guitar (and attempting to buy guitars), I stare endlessly at old pics and vids of guitar players and their instruments. Generally, everything that pros were playing in the 70s were incredibly beautiful instruments. Then I go to see how much something like would cost now (even current versions) and it's insane.

[edit] here's Derek Trucks doing amazing things with a 1965 335 [www.youtube.com] - the guitar: [www.groundguitar.com]

Actually many CBS Fenders from the 70s were lousy. When I worked on 48th St in the early 70s I got to play dozens of them in the course of selling/buying and setting them up. Late 50s were the holy grail, early to mid 60s were drool worthy and late 60s early CBS instruments were still excellent as there were many with Pre CBS parts and wiring. CBS hadn’t had time to start ruining things yet. In the 70s they really went downhill. I have a laugh looking at what these Fenders sell for now. Also you couldn’t give a Jaguar or Jazzmaster away in those days. Those were Surf music guitars and no rockers player them until they became the rage with the punks and hipsters who didn’t want to go near a Tele or strat.

Gibson went through the same thing when Norlin bought them in 69. The quality slowly but gradually declined. As far as a $3500 instrument sounding close to vintage instruments, there are videos on YouTube where they compare Squiers to American made to Custom Shop and to Vintage instruments. You might be surprised to see how little they differ.
