Gibson 1962 guitar and amplifier catalogue. Page 8. Electric Spanish thinline series, continuing on from the very highly appointed ES guitars on page 7. The Gibson thinline semi acoustic range was immediately well received; and quickly replicated by other manufacturers, so it is no surprise that these guitars took pride of place at the front of this catalogue. Details of three Gibson thinline semis are shown here, from the high end Stereo ES-345TD, through the very best known of these models (and by far the biggest seller), the ES-335TD and finally the less well known ES-330T. This was, of course, the single pickup version of the dual pickup ES-330TD, which was actually far more popular; so much so that production of the single pickup 330T was discontinued in 1963, making this it's final catalogue appearance.
1962 ES thinline prices are as follows: (Zone 1, USA, Oct 1962 price list) ES-345TD $395 (Cherry finish $410), ES-335TD $300 (Cherry finish $315), ES-330TD $275 (Cherry finish $290), ES-330T $230 (Cherry finish $245).
