We present an all original 1968 Gibson ES-330 TD in Sunburst finish with Factory Lyre Vibrola. Made in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
This Gibson hollow body guitar is in super clean condition and we have graded this beauty to near mint. A gorgeous sunburst finish with the most beautiful flamed maple top.
This Gibson Es-330 TD 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 1-piece mahogany neck has a C-shaped profile that gains a bit of depth as you move into the higher registers of the fretboard and has a full 1 9/16″ nut width. The rosewood fretboard with block inlays is so beautiful. The original Kluson Deluxe double-line tuners are intact, and these tuners turn smoothly with their original white buttons. The “Gibson” logo is inlaid in pearl on the headstock face. The bridge is the original chrome Gibson patent number Tune-o-Matic, as well as the stock pickguard, switch tip, pickup covers, and black hat knobs. 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.
All pickups and the electronics/wiring remain untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
Comes complete with its chipboard case. The latches and handle are also intact.
