Product Description

The Gibson Custom ES-339 Plain Top Electric Guitar combines the vocal-like tonal qualities of a semi hollowbody with the bite and sustain of a solidbody! This instrument from Gibson Custom is perfect for players looking for that great semi hollowbody tone in a package the size of a solid body such as a Les Paul or SG. A gently arched top with real f-holes, solid maple center block, and rounded symmetrical cutaways gives you the look and tone of classic Gibson semi hollowbodies.

Gibson Custom ES-339 Plain Top Electric Guitar Features

  • Semi-hollow, chambered body laminated maple top and back
  • Gibson’s classic ’59 rounded profile neck for a great feel
  • 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
The Gibson ES-339 offers the player a choice of superb neck feels. The rounded '59 profile replicates the slightly chunky yet fast carve of late '50s Les Pauls and ES-335s. Top it all off with a choice of thin nitrocellulose finishes and throw in a plus-lined Gibson Custom hardshell case, and it's an unbeatable instrument, whatever kind of music you make.

Body and Finish
The top, back and sides of the Custom Shop ES-339 are crafted with the same pressed-arch, laminated-maple with solid maple centerblock construction that was used by Gibson to produce the first ES-335s 52 years ago, but the ES-339 is made to more compact dimensions closer to those of Gibson's solidbody electric guitars.

The 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 Gibson ES-339 plain top guitar is equipped with pickups and electronics that accurately reflect the originals 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.

Electronics Hardware
The ES-339 semi-hollowbody from Gibson Custom 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.
