GIBSON ES-330 VOS

STOCK CODE: GIBES30VNNH1

GIBSON ES-330 VOS - ANTIQUE NATURAL - HOLLOW BODY ELEC GUITAR (ES330)

Gibson Memphiss 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. The new 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, its 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 wont 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, its a guitar that just makes sense from beginning to end.
