Hi fellas, down the track I'll get a 330 M2M from the CS when they're back in production, want a fat neck so M2M it'll be I think.
But prior to that I need to know what to expect, so is 6.5lb - 7.5lb the ballpark for these guitars, cheers.

It's been a long time since I had a 330, but it was very light. I'm guessing 7.5 lbs at most. Fat neck with the neck joint like a 335 would be sweet! Will your M2M be as such?

Yep, got my fat necked 335 delivered last year around 1" at the 1st and 1.08 at the 12th, the 330 will follow the same specs.

Good sized neck (not fat but "hefty") and a Bigglesby.

Remember - no center block so they will be on the lighter side.

Also remember - no center block so they feed back more/easier.

But...nobody lets you play really loud anymore sooooo.......

Given the fact that these ESs are prone to feedback, I guess I'll get myself a set of ear muffs and, a crash helmet in case the Marshall stack falls on me, well, that's what my insurance co says I should do :oops:
