I've always wanted a 335 with mid-60s small block inlays and factory Bigsby but without the 'Custom Made' plaque.

And a few weeks ago I saw this 330L. Being a 330, it's hollow, but it has the small block inlays and m-o-p crown inlay on the headstock that I was after. Also it's got humbuckers rather than p-90s. Factory Bigsby and a nice VOS finish sealed it for me. Oh, the 'L' on the designation is to indicate that the neck joins the body at the 19th fret, to give better access to the dusty end, rather than the 16th fret which is usual for a 330.

I like the MHS 'buckers and all these appointments effectively make it a hollow bodied 335 which makes it nice and light but the Bigsby balances it out so there's no neck dive.

Thanks for looking :wave:

Sweet!
I date her mother...and she has no neck dive :naughty:
Thanks charlie. About the neck dive, it just feels as though this guitar is pretty finely balanced so there might be a problem with neck dive if not for the Bigsby.

I've not explained myself very well but I hope you get my meaning.

BTW, yours looks like a real beaut. I bet those p90s really sing.

I just noticed...a 330 with a fixed bridge?
Is that just for the Bigsby ones?
