    No Trades!!!

    Got for sale a Gibson Es-333 with hardshell case. The previous owner installed the black pickguard which looks great. I upgraded the stock 300K pots with CTS 500K vintage taper pots and upgraded caps (Russian PIO if i remember correctly). The pickups are the stock 490/498 pickups.

    Just spent over $200 getting the frets leveled and a new nut put on. There was some finish coming off of the back of the neck so I had my tech refinish it in black nitro, which is really nice and smooth feeling. The refinishing makes the "Made in USA" a bit faint to read, but the serial # is easily readable.

    Overall, the guitar is in good shape and plays easy with fast and low action. This guitar has a thinner 60's style neck which I love. There is some discoloration on the hardware which gives it a cool slightly reliced look. There is also a small chip and crack in the volume knob, but that can be replaced for a few bucks if you are inclined.

    $1,275 shipped/paypaled, and once again, no trades please!!
    Price Drop to $1,175
    Price Drop to $1,150

    Somebody's gonna be happy with this - I've got one and this is a steal at this price. I'm surprised no one has jumped on this yet!
