The Epiphone Tom Delonge Signature ES-333 is built to the exact specifications of Blink 182's guitarist, Tom Delonge. This cool archtop combines semi-hollowbody design with the raw power of a USA-made Gibson Dirty Fingers Humbucker pickup in a one-of-a-kind signature model. Epiphone is long famous for its own original semi-hollowbody models from the 1950s Kalamazoo, Michigan era, including the Riviera and the Sheraton. During the same time those guitars were being designed and constructed in Kalamazoo, the ES 335, first introduced in 1958, became a favorite of blues, rock, country, and pop acts for its elegant design and wide array of colorful tone combinations. And now the Tom Delonge ES 333 that classic sound plus Tom’s custom refinements in your hands the Epiphone way.

The Epiphone Tom Delonge Signature ES-333 features a mahogany center block for amazing sustain wrapped in a Laminated maple body. A solid 24.75” scale mahogany neck joined at the 17th fret features a rosewood fingerboard with a 1.68” nut and an eye catching dovewing headstock featuring a unique natural finish. The one-of-a-kind and instantly recognizable Tom Delonge "paintjob" features an eye-catching cream-colored racing stripe down the center of it's Brown gloss finish and like Tom Delonge, makes a bold statement.

Aside from the head-turning color-scheme, the real horsepower is under the hood and powered by one, mighty humbucker pick-up. But it’s not just any solitary humbucker mind you! As Tom Delonge prefers for himself, this semi-hollowbody has one super-HOT Gibson USA Dirtyfingers humbucker pickup right there at the bridge for sound that’s guaranteed to cut through. Described as the critical union between power and dirt, Tom chose this pickup because "It's awesome. It sounds so good. It has so much more clarity and volume and a much wider sound... I instantly fell in love with it." Turn it down with the lone, cool, cream volume knob and turn your amp up for a clean, vintage tone with a hearty breath of smoke. Turn both the guitar and your amp up and smoke the neighbors with Tom’s signature tone!

Other details include a rosewood fingerboard with traditional “Dot” inlay, quality electronic parts including a full 1” 500K Ohm potentiometer and heavy-duty output jack. The Tom Delonge Signature ES-333 also features chrome hardware including premium 16:1 ratio Grover machine heads for superior tuning stability and accuracy. Also included as standard equipment on the Epiphone Tom Delonge Signature ES-333 are Epiphone’s exclusive LockTone™ locking Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece which pump out even more sustain and make string changes a breeze. Case not included.

      Comments about Epiphone Tom DeLonge Signature Semi Hollow Body Electric Guitar (Brown):

      After seeing awesome reviews I decided to try this guitar, as I am a huge fan of Tom Delonge's touch on his Gibson model. Seeing how affordable this is compared to buying a Gibson, I figured Id give it a shot. When it came the paint felt cheap and the guitar did not even play when I plugged in. Wanting this guitar so badly because of the awesome pickup (and blink-182 tonality), I returned the defective guitar and ordered a new one. The new one barely worked!! The jack was loose so the sound would cut out through the amp. If you're serious about a semi hollow guitar spend a little more money customizing or buying a better quality guitar.

        Comments about Epiphone Tom DeLonge Signature Semi Hollow Body Electric Guitar (Brown):

        I am a 14 year old female who is DEEPLY in love with anything that involves a Blink 182 member! I wanted the guitar for years and finally got it! The first strum was just...AMAZING!!! and so have the other so far!!! From the sound to the feel, its just amazing all around. When I first open the package, I saw that there was no pick guard and was sort of upset thinking I might scratch the paint off...but no worries, the strings are pretty high up from the guitar because of the bridge... so no scratches!!!!!! I have 2 bands and practice and preform with this guitar. I highly recommend this guitar.

        Comments about Epiphone Tom DeLonge Signature Semi Hollow Body Electric Guitar (Brown):

        i used to have the fender tom delonge strat, but i could never really get the sound i wanted from it. i tried a used tom delonge epiphone and i loved the way it sounded, so i sold my fender and bought a new epiphone

        when i first got it, i wasnt sure about the paint job, but the matte finish has grown on me. i would like it if they offered other color options, but oh well

        when the guitar came from shipping, it was set up perfectly from the start and i didnt have to adjust anything other than changing the strings to ernie balls.

        at first i thought the guitar sounded a little too washed together, but leaving the volume at 10 will have that effect. i learned to adjust it (i keep the knob at about 5-7) and now i get great tones. with delay and some phaser you can get sounds exactly like AVA

        the semi-hollow body adds a nice sound to it as well. it produces a more full tone overall, especially for palm muting. as for the construction, i have no complaints. like i said, it came set up perfectly, the neck feels great, and the tuners are also pretty good

        it is a little neck heavy, so if youre not holding it and moving around, it will tip, but youre getting a lighter body (which is very nice), so its really not a big deal once youre used to it.

        overall, if youre looking for a nice rock guitar, this is a nice option. i never played the gibson version, but this works great for getting that AVA and Blink sound.

        note: i thought about getting an epiphone dot and putting a dirty fingers at the bridge because i really liked the natural finish, but after playing both guitars its clear this is a better product. the neck is noticeably thinner and feels like its higher quality overall

          Comments about Epiphone Tom DeLonge Signature Semi Hollow Body Electric Guitar (Brown):

          i have owned this instrument for about a month now, and dont ever regret buying it. i play it through a marshall mg-series full stack and it sounds nearly identical to the blink-182-type-sound (i have no effects plugged in). i am the lead singer and rythm guitarist for a local cover band and this is currently my main guitar. it is perfect for live performance b/c of it's massive volume, zero feedback and stripped down controls. it also has very nice sustain for an epiphone. not to mention it's very unique looks. i reccomend this to EVERYONE who plays any type of CURRENT AGE alternative/pop/punk/rock and even some metal. for it's price, its pretty close to the best thing you can buy as far as simple guitars go. im still waiting for Gibson to make a version of it tho, that wuld be even better.
