The Epiphone version of this guitar was the Casino. At well under 7 pounds, this guitar is light as a feather (well…a heavy feather anyway…). One day I hope to find a 1968 ES-330. ‘68 was the year they went to the “long neck” on which the the neck join is moved up by several frets (from 15 to 19 maybe? I can’t remember exactly…), making access to the top-most frets easier. The ES-335, 345 and 355 always had this join, but it took until 1968 to find it on the 330.
