Rarified Semi-Hollow Coil Taps

The other day I tripped upon the little known Gibson semi-hollow ES-369, I don't even remember where. It wasn't here. It's notable for the dirty fingers and a coil tap, but otherwise its a 335.

It's pretty nice, but its rarity and Gibsons known lacking manufacturing practises mean you'd be paying extra for a substandard product.

But I think I should've looked closer at the Yamaha in Songbird only a couple months ago. The Japanese have a sneaky way of hiding nice features without disturbing the visual aesthetic of the instrument they copy. Damn.
