Today..Lawman Guitars is Presenting...
A Beautiful 1966 Gibson ES330TD Guitar with a Factory installed Maestro Vibrato WITHOUT the Lyre Cover...AND with the Original Gibson Liftone Gold interior Hardshell Case!
This vintage guitar is just beautiful. All original down to the Kluson Double Line Tuners, Truss Rod Cover, Pickguard, Bridge, Maestro Gibson Vibrato Tailpiece, electronics and of course the fantastic Gibson P90 Pickups. Not to forget the original Hardshell Case…what a terrific Guitar outfit this is..
I was puzzled by the tailpiece when I first saw the guitar. I am not used to seeing a Maestro without the cover on it. A cool feature for a ES330 to have a Vibrato but this one looks extra cool without the cover. No indication that it was ever on it. No fading around what would have been a covered vibrato tailpiece. Very cool and it works great. I love the Gibson Vibratos.
So what is the difference between a 330 and 335?
At first glace this model looks like an ES335, but it isn't anything even close. Fully hollow instead of semi-hollow, neck meets body at the 15th fret instead of the 19th fret, and P-90 pickups instead of Humbucking pickups in the Gibson ES 335 guitar.
This Gibson ES330 guitar sounds and plays just great. I have had many 1960’s Gibson Guitars and I always love grabbing them for the first time and feeling the awesome feel of the Gibson necks. This neck is dead straight and we set it up with great playing low action. Plenty of room to raise or lower it for your playing preference. The neck angle is perfect and there is no indication of the neck ever being reset. Nor does it need it. A really great neck. The original frets have plenty of life left in them. Some pitting on the upper few. The neck is a 25 inch scale neck and nut measures 1 9/16ths inch... I just can’t say enough about how great this neck is. Check those pics!
The P90's sounds amazing. I love P90’s anyway but one's from 1966 just has that sparkle that we all recognize. Very strong and can be aggressive when required, but also so full of tone and life when you want it to speak to you.
Check out the case. Its been around..Some tolex is missing but overall a very good Lifton Hard Shell Case... Original handle, latches, hinges and even the accessory box is still present. The original handle has some tape on it to hold it together but its still there and still functioning..The Lifton metal logo plate is still in the case. Love the Gold interior.... Great original case for this great guitar.
Now this guitar is uber cool but vintage and used so it is sold as-is no returns...however ..I have been hand picking out my customers guitars for over 20 years now..... My customers love the guitars I find them..this one will not be an exception...
Thanks for checking out our cool guitars...
