'12 ES-330 VN '59 N.O.S. Natural Custom Shop 2 P90 UNPLAYED OHC code GI31-
Gibson's ES-330 has found new popularity in recent years as players discover how great these guitars sound. Basically an ES-335 shape without a sustain block, these guitar pack loads of vintage punch thanks to dual P-90 pickups. Many folks were introduced to the ES-330 by its near identical cousin, the Epiphone Casino. From blues to rock to Beatle style pop, these guitars do it all. Gibson has recently reissued the ES-330. A fully hollow laminated maple body delivers great tone. The mahogany neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. Dual P-90s dish out great tone. Kluson tuners, a trapeze tailpiece and Tuneomatic bridge mean rock solid performance. The whole package is finished in blonde lacquer and dressed up with full binding and a laminated multi layer pickguard. The finish has the vibe of Gibsons VOS treatment with a nice aged look right from the factory. Made in the Memphis Custom Shop to the highest levels of quality. A great hollowbody with killer bite and vibe! Radius: 12" - scala: 24 3/4" - Pickup: 2 Underwound P-90 Dog Ear (Alnico II ) weighing in at only 6 Lbs
The fully hollow body starts with mahogany sides, tailblock, and headblock, and has a 3-ply maple/poplar/maple top and back. This combination creates a very resonant and lively sound while allowing the notes to fully bloom with impressive sustain. The mahogany neck has a maple spline to increase strength and stability, substantially decreasing the possibility of warping or twisting. The hand-selected dark rosewood fingerboard has a rounded binding, which gives the neck a smooth, supple feel. Add to that Gibson’s Plek Pro fret-optimization process for intonation and action and you have a guitar you’ll never want to put down.
After sampling many classic P-90 pickups, Gibson created the Memphis P-90 in the familiar “dog ear” shape, complete with period-correct black plastic covers, but the sound of these pickups is where the true beauty lies. Under-wound for true vintage sound, they have a wide tonal range from warm and silky to raucous and twangy, perfectly capturing and replicating the 1959 ES-330 TD’s vibe.
This is a great sounding hollowbody with good tone and feel. The 59 neck is straight, the action is good and the frets are fine. The pickups have tons of sparkle and growl.
