I have a original Gibson 1959 ES 330T w/ alligator case and can not find the serial. Only has a ES 330 very lightly stamped in black ink in the low-e F hole.

Look carefully to see if there's an FON (factory order number) stamped inside the back on the opposite (treble) side.  If it's from 1959, the number should be preceded by the letter 'S'.

Jim is correct, that’s where you should find it - but sometimes the ink can be almost totally faded out.
