"A working mans guitar with a maestro tremelo arm. These make great rhythm guitars and are great studio tools. The absence of a solid block inside prevents them from being played too loud. All in all a fine piece of mid sixties American made Gibson craftsmanship," says Joe Bonamaassa, on his [website](http://jbonamassa.com/joes-guitar-of-the-week/guitar-of-the-week-13-1966-es-330/).more
In an NPR article, Shane Timm - Jack Antonoff's guitar tech - talks about his troubles with Antonoff's vintage 1968 Gibson ES-330. Previous to this role, Timm worked as a technician for Mercedes Benz and BMW, and talks about his aptitude for fixing things: “It's another piece of equipment belonging to Antanoff that gives Timm the most trouble: a red, vintage 1968 Gibson ES-330 electric guitar. Timm says he's fixed the instrument so many times it'll eventually be "a very old body with all brand new parts." "It's like it's a person almost, and it wants to just mess with me. And it could be as simple as like, [Jack] just set it down on the ground a little awkwardly and for some reason as it wobbles around on the floor a wire decides to go," he says. "But every time I tackle it and I fix it, ... I fix something new.”” (original source [here](http://www.npr.org/blogs/therecord/2012/07/16/156746554/he-keeps-fun-running))more
Stoneking says, "Got this hollowbody thinline Gibson in 2009, I like these cherry red guitars, back when I was 11 years old this would have been my absolute dream guitar. It has a completely hollow body and P90 pickups, Gibson’s version of the Epiphone Casino that John Lennon favoured," on [his website](http://cwstoneking.com/instruments/).more
I have a Cherry late '66 / early '67 version with the chrome dog ear P90's and trapeze tail piece. Fully Hollow, a beast that you have to tame if playing with gain. The guitar is alive!! such fun to play and neck is warm and full, Bridge has a great brightness that cuts.....
