es 330 with fuzzboxes?

Probably pretty awesome, although I'm sure it has a lot to do with the pedal. A good pedal vs. a crummy pedal can yield decidedly different results, although it's all up to personal taste. With my 335, although not fully hollow, my old Big Muff pedal sounds awesome, not a ton of feedback unless it's waaaay cranked. I'm sure the feedback threshold on a 330 would be much lower, but I'm sure you can get it to work to your advantage. Also if feedback becomes a big problem and you're set on a using a fuzz, I've heard of people stuffing the body with cotton. I have never tried this, but I hear that it's a feedback dampener and that it doesn't affect the overall tone of the guitar too much. I've heard of guys having the hollowbodies stuffed for decades. That said Steve Howe played his 175 with Yes doing arenas for 40 years! So it can go either way. I think it's just a trial and error thing. Maybe someone else can chime in with some first hand experience, but it seems like not a whole lot of real "rockers" hang out in the ES section, sorry if I'm wrong on that...

ES 330's and Casinos are tone machines of character
Exploring the OD/Fuzz capabilities thereof can be very interesting...
Lower and Warmer....
