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.
