Hi guys. After listening to a lot of Eddie Roberts lately (from the New Mastersounds), I'm on the lookout for a 60's ES-330. I have already spotted a few on differents vintage specialized sites, but I can't make up my mind whether going for a pre 1965 or a a later model (between 1966 and 1969). Besides the cost (obviously also an important factor), it seems that a few changes occured after 1965 : Fingerboard/body junction at the 19th fret Narrower nut Headstock angle I'm mainly wondering about the first two, how they would impact playability, in one direction or the other. Is the narrower neck a big deal ? And is it really a problem if the neck joins the body at the 16th rather at the 19th fret ? Doesn't seem to bother Mr Roberts as he uses a 1965 model, at least for this last aspect. It seems also that the cherry finish costs more on the vintage market, any reason why ? Are they rarer ? And last, I had spotted some nice specimens on Elderly Instruments, but they state that those instruments cannot be shipped to EU countries. Could that be because of the Brasilian rosewood fingerboard ? Anyway, if you have some experience with ES-330s of those particulars vintages, please feel free to share.
