• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Back in '08 when the ES-330L came out, I bought this one in Vintage Sunburst.

It quickly became one of my favorite guitars to play plugged or unplugged. But what I really wanted was the same guitar in natural finish. It wasn't available and I let it go because I was so happy with the VS guitar. Then I stumbled across this and I had to have it. I had some concern about the amount of tint added as some natural finish Gibsons I had in recent years had too little tint and others too much. I didn't capture the color particularly well in the photos, but you get the idea. I opened the case and this is what greeted me.

I'll need to tweak the intonation a little bit but it is set up very nice with medium/low action and no fret buzz.

I couldn't justify having both so I let the Vintage Sunburst one go. Still in the honeymoon phase but it looks like it will be a keeper.

That is a great looking guitar, instant GAS. I even checked ebay, no luck.
