Experience the clarity, chime, and jangle of a fully hollow electric with P-90 pickups.
Originally introduced in 1959, The Gibson ES-330 Electric Guitar is back with its magical, mystical blend of fully hollowbody construction, trapeze tailpiece, and biting P-90 single coil pickups that make each note sparkling clear with a screaching midrange punch. The artisans at Gibson Custom have created a new kind of ES330 that is not a reissue yet it has all the attributes of the original 1959 ES-330 with enhancements like the vintage period correct 1 11/16" nut, correct 17 degree angled headstock, nylon bridge saddles, long neck profile, and vintage premium tuners.
The ES-330 guitar's body is truly hollow and has no center brace running through it, making it a lightweight, comfortable and uniquely resonant instrument. The one-piece Honduran mahogany neck has a long, narrow tenon and the 30/60 neck that is slimmer than a '59 rounded profile and ever-so-slightly larger than a '60 slim-tapered making it comfortable for any guitarist. The large 1-11/16" nut width means you'll have plenty of fingerboard real estate to peel off your favorite riffs. The ES-330 features a pair of dog-ear P90 pickups that, along with the hollowbody construction, provided the punch on great Beatles recordings such as "Taxman" and "Paperback Writer," and most of the electric guitar tracks on Sgt. Pepper.
