1959 ES-330 bridge?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am repairing/restoring an original1959/60 Gibson ES-330, what is type of bridge it would of came with? After some research, some pictures show a wired ABR-1 and some show non-wire ABR-1. Also would it have had nylon saddles?

The volume knobs are currently black ones this is also up for debate as I have seen both gold and black?

Thank you for the help

I can't help much except to say I think it's very unlikely to have had nylon saddles originally.

Here is a very nice one with a non-wire bridge and gold knobs -


And another (same shop) with again non-wire bridge and gold knobs -


Go for gold, I say - best wishes!
