The Birth of a Legend
First introduced in the late '50s, the ES series became an instant rock classic, bringing the feel and look of an archtop to a generation of players who had grown up playing solid body guitars like the Les Paul. The ES-335, the first in the ES series, was an instant success. But for many players who were used to smaller solid body guitars, the ES-335 felt too bulky to play on stage. The Epiphone ES339 Pro is the perfect remedy, featuring smaller body dimensions while still retaining the bell-like tone the ES series is famous for.
