Help ID'ing this ES-330

Recommended Posts

Folks,

I am trying to get the particulars on this ES-330.  Posted 4 photos of limited size.

Serial Number 854145

Please help me with any info on this particular guitar.

Is it a 19 fret or 16 fret?

Wide or Narrow neck?

Thanks, JohnnyB

I'd say it's a post 1962 model. Sixteen fret...probably a thin neck. I LOVE ES-330's! I have one from 1966 and it's just incredible! I don't think I've ever played a bad one. Are you gonna buy it?

I have the Gibson Electric Serialization chapter from the 11th Edition Blue Book of Electric Guitars which indicates that serial# is either 1966 or 1969. I have a 1969 with S/N 833616 that originally I thought was a '66. The only way to be sure is to remove one of the pots and get the date code. Mine was dated 1968 so the guitar is an early 1969. The trapeze and the bridge on the 330 look identical to the ones on my '69.
