THE TPP PAUL WELLER
"WHAAM!" 330 TRIBUTE
Few guitars have embodied 'swinging London' more than Mod-God Paul Weller's stunning "WHAAM!" pop-art guitar. Crafted using a beautiful Rickenbacker 330, the guitar was custom modified with a Gibson Humbucker in the neck position to create a far more versatile guitar for Weller to use in the studio and on stage.
Despite these custom modifications however, it is of course the amazing artwork inspired by pop-artist Roy Lichtenstein that will always allow this classic guitar to endure. Lichtenstein’s 1963 masterpiece, “WHAAM!” was based on a page from a 1962 comic book, this is a guitar-art icon.
