The Varitone is found on 345s and 355s. Wikipedia indicates that stereo was common but not a consistent feature on either. I'm still a little unclear about the differences between the 345 and 355, but it appears there were no differences in design, merely cosmetics. Historically, one only tends to see pics of these models with Vibrolas, rather than Bigsby units but they were available with Bigsbys, as were 335s. I don't dispute that this particular model is a decent axe, but for me it should only get the 355 moniker if it has a Varitone.Isn't that a 345?
I’ve never understood the draw his playing has on people. I follow the guy on Instagram and I watch clips of his playing that he posts on there, but I’ve never heard anything jaw dropping, to me at least.
And yet there he is selling out big shows and making a good living at it. He's doing something right, I guess.
I hope this was sarcastic. Whether you like or dislike his style and / or voice, no qualified musician can honestly say the he’s mediocre. Because if he's mediocre, we’re all gravel chompers.
