FDP Forum / The Lefty Forum / Lefty Gibson ES-330?

Anyone here lucky enough to own a lefty ES-330 (fully hollow with P-90's)?

Why am I gassing for another guitar? Guess I've been enjoying my Yamaha 335 style so much, I'm thinking something similar would also be a lot of fun and add another tone flavor I don't have.

This isn't something I could run out and order or buy soon...maybe in a year or two. Just wondering - and for the sake of reopening this languishing Lefty Forum (!) - if anyone has/had one and cares to share your experience. Thanks.

I wish mikey but unfortunately haven't seen or played one.

I'm Looking at a Epi Casino which is virtually same thing but a lot easier on the wallet. which would still leave me plenty of room for a pup swap later if need be

Is there a lefty Epi Casino available somewhere? If so, I'm all in!

Meanwhile, Gibson had another pretty good idea to follow up on their 339 (smaller body semi-hollow); a 390/smaller full hollow body - like an ES 330...

But don't know if you can get it in lefty?

My Ric 1997 fulfills all of my needs for a hollow body.

Check out this ES 330 at Daves. They are pretty aggressive on pricing. I recently purchased a Martin D-18 from them and the price was crazy.

Nice stuff there ... kinda pricey, though...

That 330 is gorgeous. Unfortunately, you can't find out what their discount on it would be by putting it in the cart (not that I could afford it either way).

Another option is a Heritage H530 which is a hollow body made by ex-Gibson workers in Kalamazoo. Jerry's Guitars has one that has an almond burst finish with Seth Lover humbuckers and it's a beauty, though I would probably order one with P-90's either from Jerry or Adirondack Guitars.

Hi guys
Long time no hear. Probaby you do not remember this lefty.
I have one.
Great lightweight instrument to play with delightful p90's.
It even has a woody smell coming from the untreated inside that is still there after the few years of ownership...never had that with any guitar, not even acoustic.

The last years I acquired some vintage fenders that killed the gas. Guess I will be selling the gibsons and keep the fenders.
Where you lefties recommend me to auction?

If you were in the USA, I'd say offer it on Reverb.com ... is that available in Belgium?
