Gibson LE ES330 Tamio Okuda Electric Guitar Features
- Fully hollow thinline body
- Rosewood fingerboard
- Memphis Historic Spec P-90 pickups
- Tamio Okuda's custom emblem engraved
- Hardshell case included
Although it looks somewhat like the ES-335, the ES-330 has a fully hollow body and 16th-fret neck joint. The most desirable first-generation ES-330s had simple dot inlays and Gibson’s proprietary VOS treatment gives the nickel hardware a gently aged patina.
Tamio Okuda's custom emblem is engraved into the commemorative truss-rod cover. Their historic truss rod has no tube, a proven known to enhance the guitar's resonance and sustain and Memphis Historic Spec P-90s accurately capture the depth, complexity and bite of vintage ’50s single coil pickups.
Using fret wire of precise vintage specs delivers an accurate ’58 playing feel. The labor-intensive nitrocellulose finish is given our VOS treatment for a gently aged look.
