Gibson Es 320 TD ( 1971-1974 )
The gibson es-320 td is one of gibsons' guitars that was just forgotten over time , in 1971 gibson introduced the gibson es 320 td which was sort of a
different variation model or at least very similar to the more popular gibson es 330 td . There's not much literature on why this guitar was released , the facts are the gibson es-320 td never caught on and slowly disappeared from the market in late 1974 early 1975.
From then on there was much little talk or info about the es-320 td , its like it was forgotten , from my point of view as a collector it doesn't carry much significance historically ,
However, the guitar is not as much in demand by collectors compared to the es-330 or others , but is still collectible and a nice guitar to own .
The gibson es-320 td is a double rounded cutaway thinline arched top acoustic guitar ( T for thinline - D for double cutaway ) , it has a semi hollow bound body , maple top , maple back / sides and neck unlike the es-330 which had a mahogany neck ,
pearl dot inlays on a rosewood fingerboard , tune o matic bridge with a cover ( gibson logo engraved ) unlike the es-330 which had a trapeze tailpiece , has a volume and a tone control with 2 slide switches mounted on a metal plate , 2 single coil pickups , and were made in mostly natural finishes , some guitars were made in walnut and cherry finishes .
I had the opportunity to briefly play on this guitar and in my opinion its an excellent overall players guitar , the touch was impeccable , though I found the pickups had a muffled sound and were missing brightness , it could of been the settings on the amp since I had only like 5 minutes to play on it .
