The Epiphone Tom DeLonge Signature ES333 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar is the signature model of Tom DeLonge of Blink 182 and Angels & Airwaves fame, making this axe is the perfect weapon to carry into the battlefields of pop punk. When DeLonge appeared in 2003 with a new signature model, there were two questions on the lips of every punk fan around the world.
What the hell is that? And how the hell do I get one?
As it turned out, DeLonge was rocking his new Gibson ES333 – a customized version of the company’s classic semi-hollow design, finished in retro paint, and equipped with one Dirty Fingers humbucker and a single volume control for maximum punk kudos. With DeLonge hailed as the most exciting guitarist of the new millennium, it was no surprise when his ES333 went into production as a Gibson signature model, complete with all the premium features demanded by the man himself.
Gearwire’s Owen O’Malley reviews the ES-333 Tom DeLonge Signature in this video:
Everybody knows that Epiphone is the only luthier licensed to build official versions of Gibson models. And at the 2008 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, punk fans were in for the thrill of their lives, as the Tom DeLonge ES333 made its world debut with Epiphone’s name on the headstock. It’s got the same cool vibe. It’s got the same great features. And if you loved All The Small Things, you’ll love the small price.
The Epiphone Tom DeLonge ES333 is a stunner from top to toe. As specified by the Blink 182 legend, you’ve got a cutaway maple and birch body with twin f-holes, finished in brown with a cool racing stripe. There’s a set mahogany neck with Slim-Taper profile, so you can pull off the lightning-fast rhythm work that is DeLonge’s specialty, and a smooth rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets. When it comes to hardware, meanwhile, you won’t find anything more reliable than the die-cast Grover tuners and the combination of a LockTone tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece.
Some guitars have so many dials and pickups that you lose count. So it’s refreshing that the Epiphone Tom DeLonge ES-333 has just one of each – with the same legendary USA-made Dirty Fingers bridge humbucker that featured on the Gibson original and an intuitive volume dial to control how hard it bites.

Read 1 Epiphone Tom DeLonge Signature ES333 Electric Guitar Review
This guitar sounds simply amazing The dirty fingers really let you hear EVERY single string that’s being strummed It’s perfect for my style of music (new alternative/pop punk/heavy) It sounds very chunky and in your face
I gave it a 10 because I don’t really want another pickup or other volume or tone knobs I love the sound for what it is That’s just me personally I know almost everybody would like mote features but I don’t care
Ease of Use:
Like I said it’s got one sound But run that sound through different effects and you’ve got thousands of sounds
The build quality and finish are fantastic but I gave it a 9 because it first got delivered to me with a crack in the neck and took me about a month to get a replacement Got put on stupid back order
For $500? HELL YEAH! if something happened to it I’d buy it again asap I plan on buying a couple more and getting someone to paint them different color schemes
Customer support was pretty nice but couldn’t really do what I needed them to
The Wow Factor:
