You are looking at a Gibson ES-330 VOS Hollow Body Electric Guitar Vintage Natural, serial number R21631. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (5 lbs, 14.5 oz.)

Paying homage to a classic Gibson hollow body, this Gibson ES-330 combines exacting '50s neck and body specifications, slightly underwound P-90 pickups and aged hardware to offer players that late '50s feel, tone and all-around vintage vibe. The top and back of the ES-330 are both crafted from hot pressed 3-ply maple/poplar/maple and feature cream color binding to cater to the vintage aesthetic. Thanks to the maple body and fully hollow, single chamber construction, this ES-330 is not only lightweight, but it has a sound that's full of life, whether you're plugged in or playing acoustically. Up to spec with the late '50s ES-330s, the comfortably rounded '50s-style mahogany neck is topped off with a hand-selected dark rosewood fingerboard that boasts softly curved, rounded aged cream fingerboard binding. Offering a great feel that is sure to keep you playing for hours on end, the ES-330 features a 16th fret neck joint and just the right neck angle.

Fitted with a pair of slightly under wound P-90 Dogear pickups on aged nickel-plated bases with an original spec wiring harness, this ES-330 will serve up timeless Gibson tone that'll sound great whether you're playing clean smooth jazz, funk, rockabilly or overdriven blues & rock. The nickel-plated hardware is aged to perfection, and includes a set of Tone Pros Kluson 18:01 ratio tuners with vintage-style white buttons and an ABR-1 bridge paired with either an aluminum nickel-plated Trapeze tailpiece (Vintage Burst and Vintage Natural models) or a Bigsby tailpiece (Vintage Cherry model). Each guitar has been treated with Gibson's warm Vintage Original Spec (VOS) process to give this ES-330 gracefully aged appearance. Offered your choice of three classic finishes, this ES-330  imparts an old-school look that is undoubtedly Gibson. The Gibson ES-330 Hollow Body Electric Guitar comes with the full protection of a hardshell case. Included inside the case is the Certificate of Authenticity for this finely crafted instrument.
