Tom Delonge Signature ES-333

Built to the Blink-182 guitarist’s specifications, the new semi-hollow body combines traditional ES construction and styling with the high-output tone and crunch of a Gibson USA Dirty Fingers humbucking pickup.

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..

So!
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.
