Price : US $5,199
This is a Gibson ES330TDN. It is believed that this is a 1959 or a 1960 model. The serial number was supposed to be on a sticker in the f-hole, but the sticker is gone. This model guitar with the natural finish was only made in '59 and '60, and about 300 were made between the two years.
There are a few blemishes in the finish. The finish is checked, but not bad for a 46 year old guitar. Original hardshell case. The case is a little rough, with some tears and peeling away of the brown fabric and what looks like some water stains on the purple lining. Bigsby tailpiece which was most probably purchased with the guitar when new. It was taken off when it was obtained about 30 years ago. The spring is missing to the Bigsby, but otherwise is perfect. This guitar still plays very nice and the pickups and volume controls work fine.
It's not perfect, but it's still a very nice guitar that would make a great addition to a Gibson collection. On a scale of 1 to 10 it would rate a high 7 or low 8.
