As a lefty the chances are pretty good that you’ve not had the opportunity to give a Charlie Christian pickup equipped Telecaster a workout before, so there’s a good chance you don’t know what you’re missing out on.
This is an NOS(New Old Stock) ES-335 Dot(1959 Reissue) in Cherry Red with Nickel Hardware.This guitar is much more resonant and the chords ring out with more accurately articulated notes, and the bottom end really stands out!The new Gibson ES-330 in a Sunset Burst finish is designed with historic hollow-body features at heart.This guitar has a nice weight at well under 9 lbs: 8.65 lbs (8lbs, 10.4oz to be exact) as measured on a Mettler commercial scale.The neck has a comfortable 59 profile: .92/1st fret, .99/12th fret.
I think I’ve seen one other factory left-handed Blonde Strat, but certainly not from the Hendrix era(both the white Woodstock and black Band of Gypsies Strats were from 1968).
