    I've been a fanatic Les Paul guy for over 40 years, and have owned my share. Currently have 4 LP's all real nice instruments. Like a lot of us older dudes, I've also been fortunate to own some nice guitars from other makers, mostly Fender and Gretsch. I was recently looking for my next purchase when a friend mentioned getting an ES-330, since I always dug the sound of P-90's. I ended up with this 330 from the Memphis Custom Shop, a '61 VOS Reissue. A wonderfully crafted guitar. I let my buddy test it out and he begs IMG_2354.JPG me to bring it to his gigs so he can play it live!

    330s are cool as f...

    I have one on my wish list.

    My current favourite “other Gibson” is this ‘58 Reissue ES-335

    Mine are pretty much all "Other Gibsons." Even my LP is an ES LP.

    Nice 330. Mine is 2013 VOS. Most beautiful guitar I own.

    My pair of 335's, Firebird, ES LP, and my SG's all get nearly equal love to the 330. :hippie:

    My "other Gibson" would be my '16 Firebird V "T", it doesn't see that much play, as it plays way different than any other guitar I've ever owned, but at the same time, I think it's the most beautiful instrument I have.

    Originally for my wife who said she wanted to learn, but never did. Too many other hobbies. Now it will be my grandson's first real guitar after the mini strat. '06 SG Special, threw on new knobs and changed everything to nickle along with covering the naked p/us

    Mine would have to be my Gibson Vegas High Roller that I've fit a LP pickguard to. Gives a bit of ES vibe. DSCN0312.JPG

    I actually prefer the way SGs play to Les Pauls, but I never mention it around these parts. Here's the other woman:

    I love Explorers, so comfortable to play and so badass looking.
