Product Description

An ES 339 with an impressive figured Maple Top, the warm semi-hollow bite of the Gibson Custom ES 339 Figured Semi Hollow Electric Guitar is perfect for blues, rock, jazz, country, or any other musical setting. Packed with a pair of Gibson’s acclaimed 57 Classic humbuckers, the Gibson Custom ES 339 Figured Semi Hollow Electric Guitar gives you everything from biting twang to wailing, cutting rock tones with a little overdrive applied.

Gibson Custom ES 339 Figured Semi Hollow Electric Guitar Features

  • Semi-Hollow, Chambered Body with Figured Maple Top
  • 30/60 Neck
  • 22 Fret Rosewood Fingerboard
  • Vintage Tulip Single Band Tuners
  • A pair of '57 Classic Humbuckers
  • Includes a Gibson Logo Hardshell Case and Certificate of Authenticity

Body and Finish
Crafted with the same pressed-arch, the Custom Shop ES 339 offers a laminated-maple back and side material, a gorgeous figured maple top and the solid maple centerblock construction that was used by Gibson to produce the first ES 335s 52 years ago. The ES 339 is made to more compact dimensions closer to those of Gibson’s solidbody electric guitars.

Neck and Headstock
The Custom Shop ES 339’s neck and headstock are made in the classic tradition of several great Gibson models, including that of its larger predecessor, the original ES 335. Carved from a single piece of quarter-sawn mahogany and topped with a rosewood fingerboard, the design incorporates Gibson’s lauded 17-degree back-angled headstock, which contributes greatly to the instrument’s resonance and sustain.

Pickups and Electronics
The Custom Shop ES 339 is equipped with pickups and electronics that accurately reflect the original units of the most desirable ES 335s ever made, but with performance enhancements to benefit today’s player. A pair of 57 Classic pickups capture that highly sought-after “PAF” style tone, noted for its unparalleled blend of warmth, richness and clarity, while quality CTS potentiometers, wired with Gibson’s Nashville Tone Circuit to maintain highs as you roll down the volume, and a Switchcraft selector and output jack translate the signal in pure vintage style.

Hardware
The ES 339 is equipped with hardware that mirrors the look and performance of its predecessor, the larger ES 335. Particulars include green-button Kluson-style tuners, a Tune-o-matic bridge and stop-bar tailpiece both made from the correct metals and plated in nickel, and Gibson’s original aluminum strap buttons, all of which contribute to the timeless look and tone of the instrument.

General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Beautiful...I considered just about every guitar on the market before purchasing the ES-339. First time I have bought a guitar online...thanks,AMS for the quick delivery.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
As good as it gets, the neck could be wider for fingerstyle stuff.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Very nice, could weigh a bit less
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
sounds like a Gibson
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
As a dent & scratch item the flaw was very minor...very subtle for a figured top ..which I dint mind.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
if there is a better value let me know.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
the nut was cut higher than I would have liked..this makes it a challenge to pull off & fret chords on the first couple frets..pretty good up the neck which is also easy to adjust.
