An early 1965 330 TDC. Attractive Cherry Finish, Nickel Hardware, Dual P-90 pickups, and bonnet knobs. A nice all original guitar displaying light vintage play wear. No crack or repairs. A nice example with the more desirable wide nut and nickel hardware combination that sets it apart from later 1960s 330s. Included is Gibson hardshell case.
