The Gibson ES-330 - this is a great vintage guitar, rare and unique as it should be. The ES-330 was the only hollowbody with P-90 pickups that Gibson ever made...exactly like the Epiphone Casino...but perhaps because the Beatles used a Casino and made it incredibly popular, the 330 never reached the acclaim of its Epiphone counterpart or that of the Gibson ES-335. That's not to say it's not good! On the contrary - many well known guitarists opted for the ES-330: Brian Jones and Keith Richards, Bernard Sumner of New Order, Elliot Smith and Pete Doherty in The Libertines.

This is a vintage guitars like a classic vintage guitar should be - rare, hard to find and some great players have used it! Another plus i sthe amazing, dark cherry finish...well worn, dark, looks old and cool like a new Epiphone Casino never could...when we saw this in front of our eyes we couldn't help but think: "wow!"
