Built to '50s-correct specs

Gibson Memphis wanted to re-create the experience of playing a classic Gibson ES from the '50s and built the lefty 1959 ES-330 TD to exacting vintage specs. The single-chamber body has a 3-ply maple/poplar/maple top and back and creates a lively and vibrant sound with incredible sustain. The mahogany neck has a maple spline, enhancing the strength and preventing twisting or warping. And the P-90 pickups sport nickel covers, standard on early ES models.

Hollowbody plus two P-90s equals tonal freedom

Both acoustically and plugged-in, the Gibson Memphis 1959 ES-330 TD absolutely sings. The fully hollowbody allows harmonics and overtones to develop beautifully, and the sweet tone is only enhanced by the impressive sustain. Dual P-90 single-coil pickups, each with their own volume and tone controls, allow you to explore a very wide tonal range. This left-handed 1959 ES-330 TD packs underwound pickups for a vintage sound that can cover everything from jazz and R&B to country, rock, and blues.

Amazingly smooth playability, with Plek precision

Countless guitarists over the decades have loved their ES-330 TD for its just right feel and response. The thinline body style, a favorite at Sweetwater, is comfortable to wear and play while still giving you true hollowbody sweetness and depth. Rounded fingerboard binding further enhances the feel of the well-balanced mahogany neck. And Gibson Memphis' Plek Pro fret-optimization process ensures precision intonation and incredibly smooth action, for the feel of an instrument that's been broken in and well maintained since the late '50s. Play it fast or strum it slowly; play it unplugged or crank up your tube amp - the lefty 1959 ES-330 TD will respond beautifully no matter how you play it.
