Overview

Gibson Custom' ES-330 with Bigsby Electric Guitar 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.
