Gibson???s ES-339 found an immediate place in the hearts and hands of guitarists who worshiped the classic ES-335 look, feel and tone, but needed that time-tested versatility in a more compact package. The ES-339 Studio from Gibson Memphis nails all the benefits of its predecessors but with the popular Studio styling, for a no-compromises tone machine offering 100% American-made quality at an unbeatable price. A compact redesign of the elegant ES-335 lines, genuine Gibson humbucking pickups, top quality TonePros and Grover hardware, and the popular stripped-down Studio Series ethos make this guitar an unbeatable value, but a full-bore performer by any standards. Available in your choice of Ebony or Vintage Sunburst finish, in hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer, naturally.
Body and neck
Crafted just like a scaled-down rendition of the original ES-335, introduced in 1958, the ES-339 Studio has a body made from laminated maple with an arched top, two f-holes, and a solid maple core for enhanced clarity and sustain. Its stripped-down Studio ethos is revealed in a lack of binding and pickguard, with a comfort-enhancing ???soft edge??? body contour. A glued-in neck carries an unbound baked maple fingerboard with elegant dot inlays, and a simplified headstock with gold Gibson logo.
Pickups and electronics
Two genuine Gibson humbucking pickups translate timeless PAF-like tone, with warmth and depth from a 57 Classic in the neck position and more crunch and sting from a Super 57 in the bridge. They are routed through a single master volume and tone control, with quality CTS pots, an Orange Drop tone cap, and three-way selector switch.
Top-quality hardware includes genuine Grover Rotomatic tuners, and TonePros AVR2 bridge and long-anchor tailpiece studs for optimum resonance and sustain.
The ES-339 Studio comes protected in a Gibson hardshell case.
