As an owner of a 1970 "long neck" 330, I'm happy to see a re-issue. If the economy wasn't so bad and if I didn't have higher monetary priorities, I'd get one.

I do like the higher fret access, Gibson headstock, and the real MOP inlays. And I happen to actually like the poly finish of the Epi, seems sturdier than the nitro. But other than that, for all practical purposes, they are 90% the same guitar.

 

So is Gibson really re-releasing it? I know they have done so from time to time.

 

And yes, the Casino is a 330 knock-off.

Well here's the deal.....for anybody that likes to do lead work above ...say the 15th fret...the Gibson is the way to go as RotcanX pointed out! Look at the pick by Notes of the 2 guitars for a comparison. If easy access to the upper register isn't a big deal then the casino is clearly a bargain. To be honest....this issue is why I don't own a casino!

Some mentioned, some time ago, that the Long Neck 330's had neck joint problems (as in they folded up, at that point), in the past. Anyone know anything more, about that?! It may have been the reason they stopped making the

long neck versions, to begin with...poor sales, too...obviously. Bob, have you had any "issues" with your 330?

Hi Notes, nice Pics! those are great looking hollow bodies... Yes u can pre-order the 330 on MF...

 

 

Funny thing is, i've spent this year modding my bigsby Casino, enjoying my elitist, and finally convinced myself

that a 60's 330 is just not worth it... now this friggin' 330 has to ruin all of that!@#%^&

I found this blurb about the ES-330 interesting and wonder what others think about it:

 

Musical feedback

More acoustic in nature than most electric guitars, the ES-330 provides a balanced voice with more power than other hollowbodies. The sum and difference of the top and back (not to mention rims) create a vibratory explosion of acoustical energy with an awesome midrange that exhibits a sweet spot at every fret. This results in its ability to produce musical feedback. The ES-330 starts feeding back at a lower volume threshold and delivers a wider dynamic range of musical feedback. Controlled feedback is musical and adds to the player’s creative arsenal. With the ES-330, players need only pivot their stance a bit to get in the zone. Infinite sustain is theirs at just the turn of their torso with overtones, undertones, howls, and shrieks at their beck and call. Because the ES-330 starts feeding back at a lower volume threshold further from the source, you actually have a lot more control over the feedback.

 

 

This is the MF description.
