RARE VINTAGE 1960 GIBSON ES-330TN


via this auction

"Description: Rare 1960 Gibson ES-330 TN electric guitar in natural finish. This is a gorgeous gem in a highly sought after color with very pretty figuring in the wood. A definite must have for any collector. The woody character of the guitar transverses into its tone, making it lots of fun to play.

Cosmetic Condition: Super cool vintage vibe - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches, weather checking & finish wear. Overall the guitar has a great look to it with a gorgeous patina.

Neck: Beautifully figured mahogany neck with nicely aged cream binding & tortoise side-dots. Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot inlays. The third fret dot inlay appears to be a replacement. Original frets show some wear, but have plenty of life in them. Original Kluson Deluxe tuners in perfect working condition. The D & G tuners are slightly bent, but still function properly. 1 11/16" nut width; 24 3/4" scale length.

Body: Double-bound, hollow maple body with dual F-holes. There's some delightful bird's eye figuring in the back of the body adding to the personal character of the guitar. Trapeze tailpiece with ABR-1 bridge; nickel hardware; 5-ply black pickguard.

Pickup: Single P-90 pickup with a good, strong output of 9.07K ohms. Master volume & tone controls with gold "top hat" knobs. The guitar is very light weight at only 5lbs 9oz & offers a warm, rich tone with sweet resonance. Easy to play & a real joy!

Case: Original hardshell case included."
