Fifties-Style ES-330 Is Back


Gibson Custom tells us that their new 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. They say that the new ES-330 is a lightweight, lively sounding guitar whether played acoustically or plugged in, and, 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.
A Gibson PR person told us, "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 our warm Vintage Original Spec process, it's a guitar that just makes sense from beginning to end."
