Duane Allman’s 1950s/60s Gibson ES-330

According to Jim Matherley, who came into contact with Duane in Florida in the early 60s, around 1963/64 Duane owned a Gibson ES-330 with a dot neck. Unfortunately – the rest of the specs are unknown, so consider the side image only a placeholder.

I had a (ES) 345 he wanted. He would’ve given anything for that guitar. In fact, I let him borrow it on a couple occasions. He had a 330, an old dot (neck). Of course, the 345 had the varitone switch, and Lee took that off of my guitar and copied it on one of his.

Unfortunately, we couldn’t find any other info regarding this guitar. If you happen to know anything, be sure to post it in the comments.
