One of our favorite Gibson models, these '59 Reissues really nail the vibe, tones, and feel of the old 330s.

The ES-330 tends to live in the shadows of its famous sibling, the ES-335, but players of all stripes have called on a 330 (or it's cousin, the Epiphone Casino - Beatles, Grant Green, Gary Clark Jr, etc...etc...).
Loaded with a pair of under-wound P-90s, this guitar can cover a wide range of tones - surprisingly so. We've long used this model in the studio and on stage, and you'd be surprised at how easily you can cop killer clean tones through to "why do I own a Les Paul?" overdriven tones (no kidding).
If you're new to this style of guitar, they feel essentially like an ES-335 in hand. Same size/footprint, so to speak - but - they're a heck of a lot lighter and the way the notes feel under your hands certainly differs (hollow-body 330 vs semi-hollow 335). Notes tend to be a lot rounder, with a quick attack - clear, open tones surrounded by a fat, compressed bass...it's a really cool tone and playing experience.
Please note that this guitar has had a refret and new nut installed by Gibson w/the documentation included along with the CoA and original case.
