If there's one thing Gibson had a good handle on in the 1950's it was building archtop hollowbody guitars. The ES-330 is their 2-pickup, double-cutaway offering that has since gone down in the history books. This one is from their golden era of guitar building so you've got the best tone-woods, the best neck carves, the best design aesthetics, and that special something that is hard to put into words but you know it when you find it. This is one sublime guitar that you just don't want to put down.
As with a lot of guitar that roam the world for 50+ years it has had some work over the years. There are no cracks or breaks but there are some mods. Like a lot of guitars it got some new tuners and the pickup slots were widened for humbuckers along the way. A set of vintage Gibson P90s is now back in the guitar, along with a new wiring harness so it sounds just like it should. The bridge and Bigsby are recent additions as well. Most importantly it has recently gotten a pro re-fret so it plays amazing. A good fret-job can certainly "make" a guitar.
Repro hard case included.
