I traded a Martin Backpacker for mine, a local shop used to do random trades if the owner liked the idea enough. The Aria was brand new too and I'd wanted a 335/semi acoustic fo a while.
Lovely guitar to play but I'd always felt the sound was maybe 85% of what it could be. Toyed with the idea of pickup swaps (decided against it when I discovered how fiddly 335 type guitars are to wire) then last year during furlough decided to try some flats.
Bought a D'addario set and just like that the missing piece of the tone slotted in place.
Now it's amazing, through that little Blackstar BEAM with a clean sound and some reverb/trem. Makes hours vanish.
