Overview

The Gibson ES-330 is a fully hollow double cutaway, meaning it lacks the center wood block found on its semi-hollowbody counterpart, the ES-335. Also in contrast to the 335, the 330 was built with a pair of P-90 pickups as opposed to humbuckers. The actual model number of this guitar is the ES-330TD: the TD stands for thinline double pickup. Those with a designation of ES-330T only have one pickup.
