^ Jimmy Dawkins !
I got really lucky finding my 330, I was still in high school, a buddy was in legal trouble and needed money for a lawyer. He offered me his 67 for 100 bucks! Wish I could have come up with enough to also buy his Rickenbacker....Ooooooooohhhhhh!!!!!
I’ve owned several other hollow electrics over the years, experimenting when I stumbled across one at a decent price.
Trying to find something with big single coils that might replicate the ES-330.
I’ve sold them all.
I’ve had several 330s in my hand over the years, very nice but pricey.
Each time, I decided against it and kept my wallet in my pocket.
The prices on them keep going up and up and up…
Yep - the 64 I'm my avatar has been my favourite guitar since I got it in 1989. Its got plenty of competition but is always number 1.Yes, the ES-335 is the best guitar ever built!!! I whole-heartedly believe that! I have a vintage 1964 335. If my house were on fire, I would run back into it to save that guitar, and maybe my kids!
Define "best"? You are over thinking things, my man. The 335 is the best guitar ever! Period! All that needs to be said!I think we need to define "best". Best for what? I certainly think it is the single most versatile guitar of all time. And likely would be my pick if I could only have 1 guitar. I think to say "best" you have to define the style, genre, etc.
