First teased back in January, Gibson has announced the new Slim Harpo signature "Lovell" ES-330 guitar.

The author of blues standards like "Baby Scratch My Back" and "I'm a King Bee," Harpo left a tremendous mark on the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, and The Kinks, each of whom covered his songs. 

His signature guitar features a three-ply maple/poplar/maple top, back and sides with spruce bracing, a mahogany neck with a rounded C profile, and a rosewood fretboard with small block inlays.

An ABR-1 bridge with a trapeze tailpiece, Vintage Deluxe tuners with white buttons, and a custom “Lovell” logo on the back of the guitar's headstock – which honors Lovell Moore, Harpo's wife, manager, and the co-writer of some of his most enduring songs – also come standard on the instrument.
