Through his trendsetting work with the formative punk-pop band of the 1990s, Blink 182, as well as his playing with Box Car Racer and Angels & Airwaves, Tom Delonge has established a driving guitar style that is instantly recognizable. Equally notable for its energy and compelling simplicity, Delonge’s playing is partnered by a taste in high-quality, no-nonsense guitars, and the Tom Delonge signature model from Gibson Custom suits this ethos to a “T.” Subtly yet superbly hip, with all the power to rock but nothing that might get in the way, this model offers a unique blend of timeless Gibson tradition and contemporary Delonge style and attitude.
i hope gibson custom will reissue this guitar…with a cheaper price 😀
I love this guitar of all time
I want one but I want one like his white and black striped one
you’d think tom would want to call it the ES-182
where did you get those guitars? i mean these different colors
Oh my may i buy one, Tom saved my life and i’d love to own a piece of something
any interest in trading? i have the brown and white gibson signed by all of blink, have photo proof of them signing it too, i’d love your white one
He used the Epiphone once at a show in 2009 in cleveland. That’s the only time i saw him use it, he was having issues with the wireless on his capo’d gibson. To say he uses both would be inaccurate tho lol. Could have been a ploy to boost sales of the epiphone model. But he’s a professional musician with a Gibson contract and his own signature model. He’s going to play th Gibson, not use both lol
I have been playing with my Epiphone ES-333 (Tom Delonge signature) for quite some time now, i absolutly love it.
And i need a good back up guitar for gigs, so i have been thinking about getting an Gibson ES-333.
But i don’t know if it’s worth it if it feels and sounds the same..
In my hometown here in Sweden it don’t have any chance to try the Gibson..
What’s the diffrence between the Epiphone and the Gibson? Feel, quality etc..
I don’t play either guitar, but here are a few differences I’ve found:
-Gibson has the P90 pickups, while the Epiphone has only 1 Gibson Dirty Fingers humbucker. As a result, the Epiphone only has a single knob
-the Epiphone has “dot” fret inlays vs. the Gibson trapezoidal ones.
I think the quality of Gibsons is generally higher than that of Epiphone. Gibsons are made in the USA, while Epiphones are made in Japan, Korea, etc.
According to Wikipedia,
Quote:From the early 1970s the Epiphone brand name has been increasingly used by Gibson for lower priced guitars manufactured in countries other than the United States.
The Gibson is probably about 4 or 5 times more expensive, but in general, I think you get what you pay for. That said, it doesn’t seem to me that there are THAT many differences to make it worth your while, especially if you love your Epiphone and are looking for a totally new guitar.
