The Epiphone Tom Delonge Signature ES-333 is built to the exact specifications of Blink 182's guitarist, Tom Delonge. This cool archtop combines semi-hollowbody design with the raw power of a USA-made Gibson Dirty Fingers Humbucker pickup in a one-of-a-kind signature model. Epiphone is long famous for its own original semi-hollowbody models from the 1950s Kalamazoo, Michigan era, including the Riviera and the Sheraton. During the same time those guitars were being designed and constructed in Kalamazoo, the ES 335, first introduced in 1958, became a favorite of blues, rock, country, and pop acts for its elegant design and wide array of colorful tone combinations. And now the Tom Delonge ES 333 that classic sound plus Tom's custom refinements in your hands the Epiphone way.
The Epiphone Tom Delonge Signature ES-333 features a mahogany center block for amazing sustain wrapped in a Laminated maple body. A solid 24.75'' scale mahogany neck joined at the 17th fret features a rosewood fingerboard with a 1.68'' nut and an eye catching dovewing headstock featuring a unique natural finish. The one-of-a-kind and instantly recognizable Tom Delonge "paintjob" features an eye-catching cream-colored racing stripe down the center of it's Brown gloss finish and like Tom Delonge, makes a bold statement.
Aside from the head-turning color-scheme, the real horsepower is under the hood and powered by one, mighty humbucker pick-up. But it's not just any solitary humbucker mind you! As Tom Delonge prefers for himself, this semi-hollowbody has one super-HOT Gibson USA Dirtyfingers humbucker pickup right there at the bridge for sound that's guaranteed to cut through. Described as the critical union between power and dirt, Tom chose this pickup because "It's awesome. It sounds so good. It has so much more clarity and volume and a much wider sound... I instantly fell in love with it." Turn it down with the lone, cool, cream volume knob and turn your amp up for a clean, vintage tone with a hearty breath of smoke. Turn both the guitar and your amp up and smoke the neighbors with Tom's signature tone!
