You are looking at a Gibson 1959 ES-330TD Hollow Body Electric Guitar Vintage Natural, serial number R21631. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (5 lbs, 14.5 oz.)

Paying homage to a classic Gibson hollow body, this Gibson 1959 ES-330TD combines exacting '50s neck and body specifications, slightly underwound P-90 pickups and aged hardware to offer players that late '50s feel, tone and all-around vintage vibe. The top and back of the 1959 ES-330TD are both crafted from hot pressed 3-ply maple/poplar/maple and feature cream color binding to cater to the vintage aesthetic. Thanks to the maple body and fully hollow, single chamber construction, this ES-330 is not only lightweight, but it has a sound that's full of life, whether played acoustically or plugged in. Up to spec with the late '50s ES-330s, the comfortable mahogany neck is topped off with a hand-selected dark rosewood fingerboard that boasts softly curved, rounded cream fingerboard binding. The 16th fret neck joint and just the right neck angle give this ES-330 a great feel that'll make you want to play all night.

Tied together with an original spec wiring harness, a set of P-90 Dogear pickups on aged-nickel plated bases will take you back to the tones of Grant Green in a laid-back New York jazz club. The nickel-plated hardware is aged to perfection, and includes a set of Tone Pros Kluson Tuners with white buttons and a tuning ratio of 18:01, and an ABR-1 bridge paired with either an aluminum nickel-plated Trapeze tailpiece (Vintage Burst and Vintage Natural models) or a Bigsby tailpiece (Vintage Cherry model). Offered your choice of three classic finishes, each guitar has also been treated with Gibson's warm Vintage Original Spec (VOS) process to give this '59 ES-330TD a gracefully aged appearance. The Gibson 1959 ES-330TD VOS Hollow Body Electric Guitar comes with the full protection of a hardshell case. Included inside the case is the Certificate of Authenticity for this finely crafted instrument.
