After Gibson successfully launched the ES335, ES345 and ES355 models, in 1958, there was an expansion of the range, including a new cheaper model; the ES330. Although the same shape as the other models, the 330 had significant differences; the main being the lack of central maple block, and hence trapeze tailpiece; and a shorter neck joining the body at the 16th fret (as opossed to the 19th of the 335.
It came in two variants; the single-pickup ES330T, and the dual-pickup ES330TD. The pickup was a single coil P90 unit rather than the humbucker of the other models.
