We just got this 1966 Gibson ES-330 back from Jeff Hoppe at South Sound Guitar Repair in Tacoma, Washington, where he performed another excellent fret job.  The frets are the same width as the originals with a little extra height for great feel and playability.

The only other change to this beautiful and perfect playing 330 is the pickguard.  The original hardware was used to mount it to the guitar and no new holes were added.

The guitar shows checking throughout and loads of vintage character without being thrashed.  The truss rod was checked while we were setting it up and there is room for future neck relief adjustments.

A modern TKL hardshell case is included.
