    I have a 63 that I picked up about 5-6 years ago(cheap!)...fantastic guitars! Even the vintage models are affordable still.

    My all-time favorite electric guitar. I've been waiting for them to release a Dot Neck 330 re-issue forever (it seems). Unfortunately (for me), they've decided to team it up with their earlier 50's profile neck, as opposed to the early 60s neck, which I greatly prefer. That's OK, I can't afford to be lusting after any expensive guitars at this point anyway. Fortunately , though, I already have a couple of originals (well, a '61 330 & a '61 Epi Casino).

    Anyone know what the cost of these guitars may be I would like to know . A few months ago I was talking with a Gibson rep who mentioned these guitars but did not know the cost at that time .

    I had a 330L that sounded awesome but I couldn't abide with the 30/60 neck. I bet it's a great guitar!

    I sold my Gibson ES L after playing the new ES 330 and a side by side comparison found the ES L to be a nice instrument no question but the ES 330 1959 reissue just had that vintage tone , fatter neck that Ive found on the older 330s .

    Love the finish great job making this instrument look older without over doing it and the under wound P90s well they are way cool indeed .
