    1960 Gibson ES-330 Natural Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar, Serial # R356324. Guitar has considerable weather checking but finish appears to be original. Neck has been re-bound and re-fretted but is free of breaks and has never been re-set. Moderate weather checking overall. Bridge is correct, but the saddles have been replaced. Knobs, nut and tuners are replacements. Sticker residue on the possibly re-finished headstock. The inside of the F holes are painted white around the edges which could be factory. Electronics are working and some screws have been replaced for truss rod and pickup mount. Screws for tailpiece are also replacements. The fingerboard appears to have have been replaced and there are two cracks in the neck. One is substantial crack on the base side from thirteenth fret back to the sixth fret, that has been filled. The other is in center of back of neck between third and fifth fret. However, the neck appears to be original. Work is professional, but not factory quality. Early 1960's black Gibson hard case included. Hard case included. Condition: Fair.
