Slim Harpo guitar of choice was the Gibson ES-330. Now Gibson USA is proud to recreate his guitar in the form of the Slim Harpo "Lovell" ES-330. The Slim Harpo "Lovell" ES-330 features 3-ply maple / poplar / maple top, back and sides with spruce bracing, a mahogany neck with rounded C profile, rosewood fretboard with small block inlays, ABR-1 bridge with Trapeze tailpiece, Vintage Deluxe tuners with white buttons, Dogear P-90 pickups with hand-wired controls and Orange Drop® capacitors, and has a custom "Lovell" logo on the back of the headstock to honor Slim Harpo's life partner, manager and the co-writer of many of his biggest hits, Lovell Moore.
Legendary blues musician James "Slim Harpo" Moore is remembered for his hit songs like "I'm A King Bee," "Baby Scratch My Back," and "Shake Your Hips." His songs have been covered by artists such as The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, and The Yardbirds.
