1968 GibsonES-330TD (No F Holes) – Sunburst

This employee-made 1968 Gibson ES-330TD in Cherry Sunburst is in mint condition and unlike anything we have ever seen! It was made by an employee from extras in the parts bin, and its most striking feature is the absence of F-holes in the body (think Al Caiola Model). It also has a bound fingerboard with block inlays. This neck actually joins the body at the 19th fret instead of the 16th, allowing full access to those killer high notes! Overall, this guitar is in incredible condition with virtually zero finish checking or wear. What an incredible piece!
