    You may be right. Florida is the 3rd most populous state for people, but first most populous for alligators. Smart Floridians might be better off measuring things in metric kangaroos, like the rest...

    Like most Floridians, I hadn't thought of that. But I think you're right. It can't be good for the alligators.

    I'd be worried about the flexing. It it's an ES-335 it should have a center block so it would not flex any more than an SG or LP...which is to say, not much. Gibson ES-330's did not have center...
