Description

The Gibson Custom ES330 VOS Hollowbody 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 ES330 from Gibson Custom is a lightweight, full hollowbody guitar with a lively sound whether played acoustically or plugged in. With the 16th fret neck joint and just the right neck angle, the ES330 has a great feel that makes you want to play all night.

All VOS model Gibsons are given an aged appearance by enduring unique staining, wet-sanding, and hand-rubbing processes. The result of these methods creates a visually stunning reflection of a well-cared for 40-year-old Gibson.

Gibson Custom ES330 VOS Hollowbody Electric Guitar Features

  • 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 (Aluminum Bigbsy on the Vintage Cherry)
  • TonePros Kluson tuners with white buttons and 18:1 tuning ratio
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 the Gibson Custom ES330 guitar 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 ES330 VOS guitar are magical. Offered in old-school colors and all finished in Gibson Custom’s warm Vintage Original Spec process, the ES330 is a guitar that just makes sense from beginning to end.

Manufacture
Gibson

The home of Gibson electric guitars today is "Gibson USA," built in 1974 in Nashville specifically for the production of Gibson's Les Paul guitars. Although the entire guitar industry went through a slump in the late '70s, the spirit of innovation remained strong at Gibson. In response to a growing demand for vintage stylings, Gibson tapped its rich history and reissued the dot-neck version of the ES-335 in 1981 and the flametop sunburst Les Paul in 1982. At the same time, two legendary guitarists joined Gibson- B.B. King in 1980 with the Lucille model and Chet Atkins in 1982 with his new concept of a solidbody acoustic guitar.

Gibson world headquarters moved to Nashville in 1984 with the closing of the Kalamazoo plant. The financially troubled company was rescued in January 1986 by Henry Juszkiewicz and David Berryman, and the new owners quickly restored Gibson's reputation for quality as well as its profitability.

Today's Gibson electric guitars represent the history as well as the future of the electric guitar. The models whose designs have become classics-the ES-175, ES-335, Flying V, Explorer, Firebird, SGs and Les Pauls-are a testament to Gibson's wide appeal, spanning more than four decades of music styles. Gibson's close relationship with musicians is manifest in endorsement models from King, Atkins and jazz greats Howard Roberts and Herb Ellis, plus new Les Pauls made to the personal specifications of rock stars Jimmy Page and Joe Perry. In 1994, Gibson's Centennial year, the new Nighthawk model won an industry award for design, setting the stage for a second hundred years of Gibson quality and innovation.
