1965 Gibson USA ES 330 TD

Joe Bonamassa loves these as rhythm guitars – I just love it as it has one of the slinkiest necks I’ve ever played – P90 pickups that have all the snarl and bite you’d expect, and it’s hollow bodied so feedback is a cinch….

I’ve had a replacement pickguard made, and the guitar comes in a new Turner case in a rather attractive leather look finish….  It has picked up a couple of small scuffs in the plastic exterior, but is otherwise brand new.  It even has a humidity meter built into the lid of the case!  One of the Tuners is a replacement Gibson Deluxe badged tuner, whilst the other 5 are the original Kluson Deluxe badged tuners – the only difference is the lettering!

Of all the guitars I own.  this is the one that everyone says I shouldn’t sell… But  – if it’s worth the price to you below  – that’s my price….

– similar to the ES-330 T, (- double round cutaway semi-hollow bound body, arched maple top, raised bound black pickguard, f-holes, maple back/sides, mahogany neck, 22-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlay, tune-o-matic bridge/trapeze tailpiece, blackface peghead with pearl logo inlay, 3-per-side tuners with plastic buttons, nickel hardware.) except has two single coil pickups, four knobs (two v, two tone), and a three-way pickup switch, available in Cherry (1960-1975), Natural (1959-1962), Sparkling Burgundy (1967-69), or Sunburst finish, mfg. 1959-1975.

Currently I have had offers upto £2500 for this guitar – but I have turned them down as I can’t bear to part with it.
