Anyone here lucky enough to own a lefty ES-330 (fully hollow with P-90's)?<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> 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!<br /> <br /> 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...

Thanks for reminding me about those - I think that's the ticket!

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...<br /> <br /> 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<br /> Long time no hear. Probaby you do not remember this lefty.<br /> I have one.<br /> Great lightweight instrument to play with delightful p90's.<br /> 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.<br /> <br /> The last years I acquired some vintage fenders that killed the gas. Guess I will be selling the gibsons and keep the fenders.<br /> Where you lefties recommend me to auction?<br /> <br /> Greetz<br /> Rico<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />

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