Many artists used 335’s. Eric Clapton, Larry Carlton, Alex Lifeson, Alvin Lee, and Lee Ritenour among others. It is a semi-hollow body, has a warrmer, fuller sound than a solid body and is a very versatile guitar. Not really for metal or very hard rock, it’s great for blues, jazz, and classic type rock. This one is walnut colored, has Gibson “patent number” (original) pick ups, and is worth $2000 to $3000.
