A wonderful hollowbody with a unique sound and super comfortable action.
Gibson Custom' ES-330 is reminiscent of the classic Gibson, late ™50s feel, including the comfortable neck shape blending into the soft curves of the rounded fingerboard binding. The ES-330 is a lightweight, lively sounding guitar whether played acoustically or plugged in. With the 16th fret neck joint and just the right neck angle, it' got a great feel that makes you want to play all night.
The combination of exacting ™50s body and neck specifications and slightly underwound P-90 pickups on aged nickel-plated bases tied together with an original spec wiring harness will bring you back to the tones of Grant Green in a laid-back New York jazz club. Run it through an old tube amp and you won™t be able to keep from playing one British Invasion song after another.
The weight, the feel and the tone of this ES-330 are magical. Offered in old-school colors and all finished in Gibson's warm Vintage Original Spec process, it' a guitar that just makes sense from beginning to end. Includes case.
- Three-ply Maple/Poplar/Maple hot-pressed top and back
- Rosewood fingerboard with Mother-of-Pearl dot inlays
- Underwound P-90 Dog Ear pickups
- Nickel-plated ABR-1 bridge with Trapeze tailpiece
- TonePros® Kluson® tuners with white buttons and 18:1 tuning ratio
- Includes Gibson Custom hardshell case

Comments about Gibson ES-330 Electric Guitar:
Lookin' like an ordinary ES-335 clone, the ES-330 is totally different beast. And it's not a cruel beast at all - this guitar is like a funny joyful pet. Its ringin' sound is light and speedy, resembles much more The Beatles and early 60's pop rock, than blues or rockabilly.
I'm usin' Gibson Custom VOS ES-330 with the small VOX tube amplifier and with the tube Marshall. All I can say is that VOX is much better companion for this guitar.
The voice of ES-330 is extremely sweet and tuneful even unplugged - so it's useful when you practice at home for night. And the action is flawless. Great instrument with uncommon timbre and inimitable nature.
