Vintage 1967 Gibson ES-330td electric guitar
Posted on May 26 2020
This vintage 1967 Gibson ES-330 electric guitar came through the shop a few years ago. It's an excellent example of a mid-1960s Gibson electric guitar. I'm always a vintage Gibson guitar buyer but I especially love the 1960s thinline electrics like the ES-330. Please contact me here to sell a vintage Gibson guitar.
Gibson's Thinline Archtop line has been an industry favorite since its introduction with the ES-225 T in 1955. The ES-125 TD, ES-330 TD and ES-335 TD were introduced a few years later and featured a traditional archtop body but decreased the depth of the body from about 3.5" to 1.75". This innovation made for a more comfortable playing experience as well as decreased feedback at high stage volumes. The ES-330 was fully hollow instead of having a solid center block in the body like the ES-335. The 330 also featured Gibson's P-90 single coil pickup instead of the humbucker. The ES-330 was offered in single pickup, double pickup, cherry finish, sunburst finish plus an optional Bigbsy brand B7 model tremolo tailpiece.
This model's warm, bluesy tone offers golden age vintage Gibson electric tone spanning many genres from Jazz to Blues to Rock and Indie. This 1967 Gibson ES-330td is in nice condition and comes to you in its original blue felt lined chip board case. The guitar is all original except for replaced proper Kluson tuners (Schallers removed) and an updated ABR-1 bridge with metal saddles. All other parts are original to the guitar and in excellent playing condition. The neck is straight and the frets have little wear on them. The action is low and the guitar plays nicely up and down the neck. The original P-90 pickups have lots of output but still retain that warm, clear tone. The original potentiometers, switch and output jack are also in proper working condition.
