Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this 1963 Gibson ES-330! This 330 is a scorcher! It plays like a bat out of hell and dishes out epic proportions of powerful tone! The neck pickup is super thick and meaty and the bridge pickup is soulful and clear as the day is long. This 330 is set up very well right now. The neck is straight, the truss rod works fine, the action is set medium / low and the guitar plays in tune in every position. We are all very fond of this 330. The tone is full bodied and the P90's are packing all the vintage punch you could hope for. Check it out!
