Duane Allman’s 1950s/60s Gibson ES-330access_time First seen circa 1963
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.
