OVERVIEW

A striking. striped semi-hollowbody with Gibson Dirty Fingers.

The Epiphone Tom Delonge Signature ES-333 is built to the exact specifications of Blink-182's guitarist, Tom Delonge. This cool new archtop combines semi-hollowbody design with the raw power of a USA-made Gibson Dirty Fingers humbucker pickup in a one-of-a-kind signature model. The Epiphone Tom Delonge Signature ES-333 features a mahogany center block for robust sustain wrapped in a laminated maple body. A solid mahogany neck joined at the 17th fret and the unique and instantly recognizable Tom Delonge "paintjob" featuring an eye-catching cream-colored racing stripe down the center of it's brown gloss finished body makes a bold statement.

Powerful Looks, Powerful Sound! Aside from the head-turning color-scheme, the real horsepower is under the hood and powered by one Humbucker pick-up. But it's not just any solitary Humbucker mind you! As Tom Delonge prefers for himself, this semi-hollowbody has one super-HOT Gibson USA Dirtyfingers Humbucker pickup right there at the bridge for sound that's guaranteed to cut through. Described as the critical union between power and dirt, Tom chose this pickup because "It's awesome. It sounds so good. It has so much more clarity and volume and a much wider sound... I instantly fell in love with it." Turn it down with the lone volume knob and turn your amp up for a clean, vintage tone, with a hearty breath of smoke. Turn both the guitar and your amp up and smoke the neighbors with Tom's signature tone!

Still Packed With More Value: Other details include a rosewood fingerboard with traditional "Dot" inlay, quality electronic parts including a full 1" 500K Ohm potentiometer and heavy-duty output jack. It also features chrome hardware including premium 16:1 ratio Grover machine heads for superior tuning stability and accuracy. Also included as standard equipment on the Epiphone Delonge Signature ES-333 are Epiphone's exclusive LockTone locking Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece which pump out even more sustain and make string changes a breeze.

Always There For You: The Epiphone Tom Delonge Signature ES-333 is protected by the Epiphone Lifetime Limited Warranty featuring Gibson 24/7/360 Customer Service and guarantees the instrument against defects in materials or workmanship.

Let me preface this with saying that I've owned a very wide range of guitars, mostly Gibsons, through the years. In general, you get what you pay for. Long story short, this wonderful guitar delivers like a high end Epi that is frankly better than many low end Gibsons. I really couldn't be happier with the sound, quality and construct. Just be sure you understand what you are buying here: semi-hollow, rounder sound with more distortion/feedback from the strategically selected dirty finger pickup. If you are playing pop punk or modern country with a hard rock edge...this is the guitar for you. If you are looking for a smooth jazz sound, well...you probably wouldn't be here shopping a Tom Delonge model anything. LOLThis guitar is really am amazing value and a performance guitar quality. Very fine for gigging, and only just just short - as you'd expect for the price - for the most demanding studio work.

The neck on this guitar is the biggest I've ever seen on an electric. Its huge. Still playable but it really is very thick. The electronics are nice and it has decent tuning machines. The issue with mine is that it will not intonate. It gets very close but the bridge won't get it there. I plan on switching it out to a TonePros, which offers more travel distance of the saddles. Then it should be okay. There are better guitars in this price range.

Comments about Epiphone Tom Delonge Signature ES-333 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

The Gibson Dirty Fingers are great, i get a lot of compliments about it. I wish it had a bridge pick up and more controls but other than that its a good choice for decoration or playing. I've heard its not versatile but you may need a noise compression pedal for cleaner tones. I prefer distortion.

          Comments about Epiphone Tom Delonge Signature ES-333 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

          The Dirty Fingers Pickup Is ALIVE! This ES 333 sounds Amazing. I have alot of high end guitars this is a steal well made and sounds over the top great!!
          If you want a well built guitar with fantastic playabilty that can Kick punk and alt music to the ground through the air and in your face this is your guitar....The Gibson Dirty Finger pickup combined with the es 333 hollow body gives you infinate sustain and crunchy grind. I Just got this guitar played all afternoon through my Blackstar amp. Its Alive with crunchy choppy punchy punk rock tunes...I own Gibsons acoustics and electrics I wanted a hollowbody for Jack white grove...so I gave this a try man I am glad I did its a really Fantastic guitar for the Money..If your a adult seasoned player or just startings out in a band this is the guitar to have. I am reall happy with this Epiphone I have a grin on my face the whole time Im playing....Now to start another band..
          Built well Light weight great sounding!
          Really great buy worth the cash!

          Amazing Guitar

          Comments about Epiphone Tom Delonge Signature ES-333 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

          This guitar sounds amazing... distortin, clean, with or without effects... A lot of people says that this is an exclusive punk rock guitar but I think you can play several genres on this...although poprock is the way to go with this guitar.
          I own this guitar and also Tom DeLonge's statocaster. I gotta admit that I love them both, this guitar sounds awesome with distortion, dirty finger pick ups are for that... Although I do like this guitar for cleans too..I prefer my old Fender for that. Up to you.

          The only thing was that mine came with a problem with electronics...remember this is a guitar made in china so maybe you'll have to give it a tune up first... chance the strings, check the electronic and pieces... but it's a great guitar. I highly recomend it...

          (sorry for my bad english)

          A Joy to Play!

          By Don Salvatore

          from Alaska

          Comments about Epiphone Tom Delonge Signature ES-333 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

          The satin-finished neck is fast and feels solid without feeling too chunky. It's got insane sustain. The Dirty Fingers pickup delivers the amps! I am able to dial-up to an aggressive Punk tone without having to plug in my pedals, and at mid-volume it's focused enough for soloing. It's a cool looking axe and I have trouble putting it down. The hollow-body sound really comes to life when strumming near the bridge. Fun guitar!
          This is probably the most comfortable guitar I've ever played. The satin finish on the neck is super fast and the balance is terrific. I LOVE the volume-only control setup. It lets you go from clean, vintage semi-hollow sounds to crunchy/punchy Punk without having to juggle a bunch of variables. The hardware is all solid and beautiful. It stays in tune for weeks at a time!
          I'm more of a covered-pickups kinda guy, so I wish the pickups were a liiiittle less exposed, but everything else on this thing is solid. It's got a comforting heft without being heavy or unbalanced. The hardware is all excellent Epiphone quality.
          Man, for this price you get a LOT of guitar! This is my first sem-hollow and it gives me the versatility of that vintage quasi-acoustic sound and the ability to punch back into Punk without having to reach for my Les Paul. It's got class, it's got style, it's got attitude. A solid all-around primary guitar (especially if you can't decide between an or an electric) or a great secondary axe to add some flavor to your act.

          Comments about Epiphone Tom Delonge Signature ES-333 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

          i used to have the fender tom delonge strat, but i could never really get the sound i wanted from it. i tried a used tom delonge epiphone and i loved the way it sounded, so i sold my fender and bought a new epiphonewhen i first got it, i wasnt sure about the paint job, but the matte finish has grown on me. i would like it if they offered other color options, but oh wellwhen the guitar came from shipping, it was set up perfectly from the start and i didnt have to adjust anything other than changing the strings to ernie balls.at first i thought the guitar sounded a little too washed together, but leaving the volume at 10 will have that effect. i learned to adjust it (i keep the knob at about 5-7) and now i get great tones. with delay and some phaser you can get sounds exactly like AVAthe semi-hollow body adds a nice sound to it as well. it produces a more full tone overall, especially for palm muting. as for the construction, i have no complaints. like i said, it came set up perfectly, the neck feels great, and the tuners are also pretty goodit is a little neck heavy, so if youre not holding it and moving around, it will tip, but youre getting a lighter body (which is very nice), so its really not a big deal once youre used to it. overall, if youre looking for a nice rock guitar, this is a nice option. i never played the gibson version, but this works great for getting that AVA and Blink sound. note: i thought about getting an epiphone dot and putting a dirty fingers at the bridge because i really liked the natural finish, but after playing both guitars its clear this is a better product. the neck is noticeably thinner and feels like its higher quality overall

          I bought a used ES-333 from this site and they ran out of them. So, they sent me a NEW one for the price of the used one! The service from this site and company is amazing. As well as the guitar. I love how different this guitar is and how it stands out. Im new to playing guitar but from previous knowledge with bass, i know what to listen for sound wise. This guitar is amazing and will catch the audience in mid sentence.
