There are guitars designed for all genres from country to metal, but the Epiphone Tom DeLonge ES-333 Signature is one of the few that fits pop punk like a glove. With a semi-hollow body, slim neck, and hot Gibson Dirty Fingers humbucker, this ES-333 matches the irreverent spirit of its namesake.
Light, Comfortable Design
The Tom DeLonge ES-333 signature guitar is a variation on the classic semi-hollowbody guitar. This model joins a laminated maple and birch body to a mahogany neck cut in a SlimTaper profile and topped with a rosewood fretboard, helping you play with the speed of DeLonge's chugging rhythms. The semi-hollow design not only spares shoulders -- appreciated by guitarists who like to sling their axes low -- but contributes to the overall bright tone of the guitar. Players should have no trouble cutting through even the loudest of mixes with this guitar.
Primed for Punk
The stripped-down aesthetic of the Tom DeLonge signature guitar should come as no surprise to fans of the Blink-182 frontman. Equipped with a single Gibson Dirty Fingers humbucking pickup in the bridge position, this guitar can't help but deliver scorching rhythm and lead tones. The single volume knob is designed to minimize interference and really get the most out of this already-hot pickup.
If the guitar's aggressive sound were not enough, Tom DeLonge's racing stripe finish and signature on the back of the headstock will remind anyone of whom this guitar was inspired by. This ES-333 features other no-nonsense appointments like a LockTone Tune-o-Matic bridge and stopbar for comfortable palm-muting and easy intonation adjustments. Working in sync with the Grover die-cast tuners, the Tom DeLonge signature's hardware helps ensure the guitar stands up to even the angriest punk strummers.

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 the perfect weapon to carry into the battlefields of pop punk.
When DeLonge appeared in 2003 with a signature model, there were two questions on the lips of every punk fan around the world. What is that? And how do you get one?
As it turned out, DeLonge was rocking his Gibson ES-333 -- 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 millennium, it was no surprise when his ES-333 went into production as a Gibson signature model, complete with all the premium features demanded by the man himself.
Everybody knows that Epiphone is the only luthier licensed to build official versions of Gibson models. 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.
