Gibson / ES330 / 1966 / Sunburst / Guitar
By 1966 the ES330 had block fingerboard inlays and chrome pickup covers. It’s personal taste, but this is my favourite look. The guitar is the hollow body equivalent to the more famous ES335 which features a centre block, and it has smoother sounding P90’s rather than humbuckers. It’s also the Gibson equivalent to the Epiphone Casino. Used by countless players over the years, it has to be one of the best looking Gibson electrics of all time and, if like me you prefer P90’s, one of the coolest. This guitar is in excellent condition, with changed Seymour Duncan Antiquity pickups. The wear on the back of the neck shows it’s been well played, but the rest of the guitar shows it’s been really looked after. The tobacco sunburst is still vivid, with beautiful looking lacquer checking. The back of the guitar shows signs of light buckle wear, but nothing to take away from the highly figured finish. Tonally it’s hugely versatile, taking you from smooth jazz tones, through biting blues, to driving rock. The neck is very comfortable with easy playing action. The guitar comes in a custom fitted Hiscox flight case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
