We present an all original 1966 Gibson Es-330 TDC in Cherry Red finish. Made in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
This hollow body is in great condition with very few nicks, dings, finish flaw and other cosmetic wear.
This Gibson Es-330 TDC is so acoustically resonant. The fullness of the unplugged tone translates very well through the pickups, which deliver a very dynamic and nuanced tone, with the heft and midrange fullness that only comes with the combination of a fully hollow body and a good P-90 pickups.
The original Kluson Deluxe double line tuners with white buttons are intact, and these turn smoothly. The original nut and frets are in perfect shape with a lot of life left. The bridge is the original chrome ABR 1 Tune-o-Matic bridge with nylon saddles. The original chrome trapeze tailpiece is intact, Black reflector cap knobs, as well as the stock pickguard, switch tip and chrome pickup covers.
The back of the headstock is stamped “second” that happened some times and does not decrease the value, it usually means that some cosmetic imperfection caused it to be designated.
Pickups and the electronics/wiring remain untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
Comes with a newer Gibson hardshell case.
