The ES-330 TD was initially a stepping stone model into the thinline ES series of guitars but for us shares much more in common with Gibsonäó»s earlier thinline archtops such as the ES-225 it superseded in 1959.
Fully hollow with no centre block, this one weighs in at a feather under 6lbsŒæand feels very lively to play. The 2 single coil P-90 pickups can sound twangy and snappy on the bridge pickup and big, warm and rounded on the neck with the middle position a perfect blend of the two. Clean they sound great for everything from Grant Green to latter day Beatles, into a breaking up amp they sound perfect for everything from roots Americana, swampy blues to trashy Garage rock n roll.
A standard Gibson 24 Œ_äó� scale length with a 16 fret neck joint keep the guitar feeling nice and compact and with a strong Sunburst with minimal checking to the finish it really looks the part especially the combination of block inlays and black P-90 covers.
Comes with the original yellow-lined Lifton case.
