GIBSON ES 330 TDC, 1968

cherry red. The little sister in the double-cutaway/thinline/semi-hollowbody family, actually is a 100%  hollow-body guitar, because it has no maple block inside. Just like 335s, it has a laminated maple body and mahogany neck. The guitar you see here has two P90s with chrome covers, trapeze tailpiece, Kluson Deluxe tuners with plastic oval buttons, tune-o-matic bridge, chrome hardware and pearl-dot inlaid rosewood fretboard. Pearl Gibson logo (not "pantographed"). Original and ready to play, in excellent conditions.  Cherry red finish is really shiny on sides and back, and has turned a little darker on the top. So it's not faded, but is slightly different maybe for the yellowing of the clear-coat due to the exposure to the sun-light. Through this beautiful finish, you can see nicely figured woods. Normal playing wear on the back of the neck, a light checking on the body, but the guitar is in overall excellent condition. Good quality non-original hardshell case.
