Another unique feature of 535's is the solid (not laminate) rims.  Plus they put the input jack on the rim, vs. in the top.  I've always hated the location of 335 input jacks. 

The founders must have had a reason for these changes/upgrades, and put them into effect right from the beginning of production back in the day.

absolutely, much better design. 
I tend to prefer the thinner body on the 535 as well, though the 335 body depth never bothered me

One cool thing about those 535's was the matching wood pickguards.

When new owners took over, that went away.  Thus my plastic 535 was never installed.

Congratulations!

Amen, as shown in my profile pic!
i also have a '94 550 in natural with a matching pickguard, as well as a 1 piece flame maple neck! That's the guitar I'm taking to the grave.
