I really like my Antique Sunburst 335--it's a little darker and smokier than either of the two you've pictured, if that makes sense.
I like the lightburst finish, but they are really variable--some are great and some are just blah. The current Cherry is too bright of a red--I much prefer the darker cherry that they use on the Custom Shop 339. I LOVE some of the flamed blond 335s I've seen lately. They are always more expensive, but they really are gorgeous.
My fav finish color for a 335 though would have to be the Larry Carlton Iced Tea. That's was the color of my old long neck 330, and it was just a beautiful color. I almost bought a LC Signature 335, but they have the narrow 1-9/16 nut. Come to think of it, Gibson did a Tangerine Burst on the 336/356 series that was really stunning, too.
I guess if you have your heart set on one of the two, I'd take the one that felt and sounded the best--of course. I agree about the teardrop burst, so I lean towards the Lightburst, but I'd have to see it in person to be sure.
P.S. Hey, if you're tight with Jol--have him send you a Hamer Monaco or a Newport!!!
