Contrary to popular belief, electric guitars are an instrument that requires you to master two very different things. One is, of course, the playing technique, but the other is utilizing the hardware of that guitar and that of the amplifier in order to dial in a great tone.

The Gibson ES-339 is loved by players who need semi-hollow tone but don’t want a guitar with too much bulk. Built as a smaller version of the ES-335, the ES-339 has the same semi-hollow tone and sustain in a smaller package. Made with a 3-ply maple and poplar laminate body, this guitar showcases a bright and lively sound with a warm, rich sustain. A mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard feel familiar in your hand and enable quick soloing and chording. Powered by a pair of ’57 Classic humbuckers, this guitar has all the PAF goodness you’d expect from a vintage Gibson, but with added clarity and bite.
ES-339 was designed to have the same appeal of the ES-335 but with a smaller, more comfortable body shape. The result of this design choice makes the ES-339 an easy-to-play semi-hollow with amazing sustain. You'll enjoy the hollowbody warmth without annoying feedback, thanks to the solid maple center block. Any guitarist of any caliber can appreciate the sound of the ES-339, but guitarists that perform nightly will find it to be a dream come true for comfort and tone.
