Price paid: £ 350

Purchased from: GuitarGuitar

Features: Gig bag – Loads of pockets, very useful. Strap – Hasn’t broken in 2 years. // 10

Sound: – Amp – Marshall MG Series 10CD
– Lead – Venom Professional Noiseless Instrument Cable with 90° jack. (Very good)
– Pedal – Boss ME-25 (amazing pedal)
– Clean tones – amazing sound, very jazzy.
– Distortion – again, a fantastic sound, very “punky” (as it should be)
– Effects – sounds very good with effects such as delay, reverb, wah, etc.
– Pickup – Gibson Dirty Fingers Humbucker x1 – The best I’ve ever used. // 10

Action, Fit & Finish: The action of the guitar was very well set up on my guitar. Loved the factory strings, not sure what they were. Currently using Ernie Ball Skinny Top Heavy Bottom strings. – Sounds excellent. My only minor concern was the it was matte and after some use it becomes shiny from where you rest your hand. Looks good though, not too bothered. // 10

Reliability & Durability: I’ve played it on stage a few times and I’ve had no problems. // 10

Impression: Style of music – Rock/Punk, Jazz, Metal, Blues. Playing time – 2008-present. “Can I have the Gibson version for this price?” (£350). If stolen – Buy a new one. Love – sounds and playability. Hate – Nothing Favourite Feature – Pickups. Compared this to the ES-335, I preferred the ES-333. // 10 Was this review helpful to you? Yes / No Post your comment

Sound: This guitar is terrible. Has no clean sound at all. Distortion is great if you are only looking for a pop punk guitar. I play it with a Marshall AVT150 half stack and the clean sound is jsut terrible. The Tom DeLonge Strat sounds 10x as good as this. // 3

Action, Fit & Finish: Action is pretty good. Not as good as most Gibsons. Finish is good on it. Only flaw really is the sound and the input gets loose. Its not Gibson quality. // 5

Reliability & Durability: This guitar will last. Playing live or just sitting at home. Comes with a nice hardshell fitted case. Strap buttons are good but, would replace with strap locks if you’re playing shows. Because th strap tends to slip off because of the strap button location behind the guitar. // 7

Impression: Good for only one stlye of music. I play punk/emo/scremo/metal and about the only one this guitar is good for is pop punk. I’ve been playing for around 5 yrs now. If this guitar was lost or stolen I probly wouldn’t waste the money again. If you like the look of the guitar get a ES-333 or ES-335 they sound way better. Or if you want the Tom Delonge name get the Fender Tom Strat as I said before the sound is way better and will do more type of styles. This is the worse Gibson I’ve ever played. // 4 Was this review helpful to you? Yes / No Post your comment

Sound: This guitar is the best guitar for my style of music. I play mostly punk/emo/screamo. You get a rich sound when you have distortion on it and you get a nice smooth tone when you play it clean. I also use it as an acoustic to make songs for my band cause it’s a semi-hollow. // 10

Action, Fit & Finish: The action on the guitar is great. The pickups are fine. My guitar didn’t contain any flaws. // 10

Reliability & Durability: This gutiar will probably withstand live playing considering its a signature of someone who tours a lot. The finish is good enough to last. The strap buttons are solid. I can depend on this guitar. I wouldnt need a backup with this guitar // 10

Impression: I play punk/emo/screamo/ as I said before and this guitar goes perfect with the bands I play. I’ve only been playing for 2 years. I also have Toms Fender. I love this gutiars sound with distortion. The pickups are great even though they were brought back from the 70’s. I wish it was lighter and a little smaller cause im used to the Fender Strat and that is very light and very small compared to his new guitar. All in all this guitar is a great guitar. // 10 Was this review helpful to you? Yes / No Post your comment
