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.

General Your general opinion of this product. What a great guitar! Gibson really did nice work in making this beauty. The sound is amazing and it sustains FOREVER!! If I were to pick on anything I would say that Gibson Memphis is a little sloppy in their delivery to end user. There were some scratches and the figuring on the Tri-Burst I received is noticeable but not intense. I found this on 2 different ones in this color. The weird thing is when you look into the F holes you can see intensely figured / flamed wood? What's up with that? That's why I gave only 4 stars on finish, and that is all Memphis quality control. The guys at AMS were great to work with. A++ Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Definitely. So far so good. If it is as good as my 3 other Les Pauls, I know I will be totally satisfied. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Neck pick up is super creamy and the clean tones are just to die for. I love the '57's it gives you gritty, nasty rock tones when playing dirty, bright, creamy and rich when clean. As I said in general comments... IT SUSTAINS FOREVER!! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Look, colors are awesome. Looked like someone got a little too aggressive with the buffing wheel at the factory, I prefer to put my own scratches on my guitars, but was enough to bug me that it would be sent out that way. A lot of wood shavings and warehouse junk in 2 guitars/cases. Very odd
Love this guitar
