Seller also notes the pickup covers may have been changed.

How can you don’t love the 1965 Gibson Es 330 Electric Guitar? It’s one of the instruments that helped build the guitar-centric world of today, and this vintage ’65 example is a total keeper. It’s a gorgeous sounding guitar that you almost instantly fall for. The sunburst is really amazing, going to dark cherry at the edges instead of the normal black. Like a lot of vintage instruments it’s had a few changes over the years and this one has a new nut, bridge, and knobs. It once had a humbucker in the bridge position but the original P-90 is back in and the cover almost totally covers up any evidence of the mod. No breaks or repairs to be found though. It’s nice and light and resonant and has a rich tone even before you get near an amp. It’s a joy to plug in though, as the pickups merely amplify what’s already there, it’s hard to get a bad sound of this one.

Gibson Es 330 Review

review

The following is about Gibson Es 330 Review.

Features: The ES-330 is a thinbody, double cutaway, fully hollow body guitar produced by Gibson from about 1952 to the early 1970’s. Gibson es 330 attached the neck at the 15th fret, but starting in 1967, they lengthened the neck where it joined the body at 19th fret. This matched the neck length of the ES-335.

Sound: The guitar originally came with two P90 pickups, but these gave me problems as single coil pickups will if you play where they control the house lights with a rheostat. With the new P100 pickups, the sounds I heard from ES-335’s, SG’s and Les Paul is really nice. It just feels and sounds more like the Gibson guitar sound I’ve grown to love. The rest of the electronics are Standard factory installed, three way pickup selector switch and associated volume and tone knobs for each pickup.

Action, Fit & Finish: The action has always been quite good. By replacing the original nut with a graphite nut, the strings no longer bind when using the Bigsby tremolo bar allowing the guitar to stay in tune even if the tremolo bar is used. A friend had a similar ES-330, only with the trapeze at the bottom. It didn’t play as well or have the balance the Bigsby gives to the instrument. The sustain was much better with the Bigsby tail piece as well.

Reliability & Durability: The guitar has held up well the last 30 years with a little checking in the finish. The neck is superb and easy to play. Outside of replacing the pickups, nothing has been done to the electronics. All original wiring is in place. The chrome pickup covers fit over the newer P100 pickups so from an external viewpoint, you can’t tell anything has changed.

Through Gibson Es 330 Review, everyone have a new realize about it. If you like it, BUY IT NOW!!!

Gibson Es 330 Electric Guitar

gibson es 330

 

Gibson es 330 is a wonderful hollowbody with a unique sound guitar. And it has super comfortable action. Gibson Memphis’s gibson es-330 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 gibson es-330 is a lively sounding and lightweight guitar whether played acoustically or plugged in. With the 16th fret neck joint and just the right neck angle, gibson es-330 got a great feel that makes you want to play all night.

The combination of exacting’ 50s body and neck specifications and slightly underwound P-90 pickups on aged nickel-plated bases tied together with an original spec wiring harness will bring you back to the tones of Grant Green in a laid-back New York jazz club. Some people call this guitar’s neck is the “long neck”. As a matter of fact, the neck is set in a different place. A slimmer neck is easier access to the upper frets. This thing sounds unreal ! The guitar is beautiful. Well built and it smells good too. The vintage sunburst finish suits the guitar perfectly. Run it through an old tube amp and you won’t be able to keep from playing one British Invasion song after another.

The weight, the feel and the tone of this gibson es-330 are magical. Offered in old-school colors and all finished in Gibson’s warm Vintage Original Spec process, it’s a guitar that just makes sense from beginning to end. Includes case.

Look in like an ordinary ES-335 clone, the ES-330 is totally different beast. And it’s not a cruel beast at all – this guitar is like a funny joyful pet. Its ringing sound is light and speedy, resembles much more The Beatles and early 60’s pop rock, than blues or rockabilly.

If you are looking at one of these and sitting on the fence, gibson es-330 is a good choice. For the love of all that is holy BUY IT NOW!!
