    I wonder if Andertons or Thomann??? might be taking advantage to these big Gibson blowouts?

    I bet it is a 2015. They kinda screwed up using T first because they didn't realize the letters were supposed to advance backwards. I bet they just said "screw it" and reused S.

    Oh now I see, your bridge is wired with nylon saddles and a locking mechanism. Yeah that isn't stock. Everything else looks right though.

    Thing is, there never were cherry red '59 ES-330s so if it sounds good leave it. I've had the wired bridges rattle on me but some sound great. Easy enough to swap with a wireless brass saddle one next string change to see what you think. Nice thing about the locking mechanism is it stays in place during string changes...

    Yeah I discovered it's tonepros G formula avr2 bridge, so it's locking and has the wire but it's made not to rattle (it doesn't at all) and the nylon is supposed to mimic the old Gibson nylon only its more lubricated. I've got no complaints with it yet so it stays!
