About This Listing

A beautiful 1959 Gibson ES-330.

Note to USA buyers outside of Washington State: for instructions on how to purchase this on reverb without being assessed sales tax at the time of purchase, please contact me before purchasing.

Fat 59 neck. It’s not the later “medium” profile you see towards the end of the year. Factory fat frets as well.

Looks like it was originally sold at a music store called Claude Crocker’s Music Centre Limited in New Westminster, BC in Canada. take a look at the dealer sticker still on the back of the head stock! That’s actually just across the border from where I live!

The body is in very clean condition with the minimal signs of light handling wear. For the sake of those that are meticulous and picky, here’s all the details. The guitar got played a little bit in the cowboy chord position. So there’s a little finish wear are your index finger with resting on the treble side of the neck on the first couple frets. There’s a few minor indentations and marks along the back of the neck but nothing to write home about. There’s not a strap button on the upper horn would you can use if you’d like. The low E saddle looks a little more worn than the rest but they are all vintage or original parts of the bridge. One fret dot marker was re-glued… The one on the 15th fret. You would not have known if I didn’t tell you :-). There is some wear to the tip of the treble side bridge post but it works exactly as it should. There’s a little finish “smudge” at the tip of the headstock on the back. Probably from resting on a strap or something that a previous owner stored in the case in the headstock area.

So, most would just say “excellent, clean condition“ and leave it at that. That would be completely accurate. But I like to give you all the nitty-gritty, microscopic details :-).

Comes in the original deluxe lifton case which is in similar condition to the guitar.

You’ll get the string box, but the rest of the case candy and sign are not included.

If you are located outside USA, please contact me before purchasing discuss shipping arrangements.
