How can you don’t love the 1965 Gibson Es 330 Electric Guitar? It’s one of the instruments that helped build the guitar-centric world of today, and this vintage ’65 example is a total keeper. It’s a gorgeous sounding guitar that you almost instantly fall for. The sunburst is really amazing, going to dark cherry at the edges instead of the normal black. Like a lot of vintage instruments it’s had a few changes over the years and this one has a new nut, bridge, and knobs. It once had a humbucker in the bridge position but the original P-90 is back in and the cover almost totally covers up any evidence of the mod. No breaks or repairs to be found though. It’s nice and light and resonant and has a rich tone even before you get near an amp. It’s a joy to plug in though, as the pickups merely amplify what’s already there, it’s hard to get a bad sound of this one.
