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 P-90 pickups as opposed to humbuckers, and with a neck joint at the 17th instead of 19th fret. Those with a designation of ES-330T only have one pickup.
