From the 1968 Gibson catalog, “Everything’s going for you with this beauty. Big Gibson sound with twin adjustable pickups. A thin silhouette that’s easy to play. Slim, fast low-action neck with full 22 frets. A great guitar to give or to get. Brilliant Cherry or Sunburst finish.” Gibson updated the ES-330 model in 1967 to have a 19th fret neck joint like the ES-335 instead of the previous 16th fret neck joint. Still, the ’68 ES-330 is a very different guitar than the ES-335 in that it’s fully hollow and has P-90 pickups instead of humbuckers. Players will find it to be lighter, warmer, and a bit more prone to feedback at high stage volumes when compared to an ES-335.
