OVERVIEW

A wonderful hollowbody with a unique sound and super comfortable action.

Gibson Custom’s 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’s 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’s a guitar that just makes sense from beginning to end. Includes case.

  • Three-ply Maple/Poplar/Maple hot-pressed top and back

    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.
