For those that love the sound of an ES-335 but want a smaller frame, the Gibson Memphis ES-339 Electric Guitar is set to deliver all you need. Smooth jazz rhythm and punchy, twangy lead that only a hollowbody can deliver, the Gibson Memphis ES-339 will steal your heart.
The Gibson ES-339 Electric Guitar employees the same construction as the original ES-335s, with its laminated maple body and solid maple centre-block but with compact dimensions that make it more appealing to players of solid body guitars. This body has then been finished with a thin faded cherry gloss that gives it a beautiful visage without any compromise on natural resonance.
Joined to the body of the Gibson ES339 Electric Guitar is a highly playable neck made from a single piece of quarter-sawn mahogany and carved to the new 30/60 profile. This profile incorporates the thinner necks of the early ’60s and adds 0.030-inches of depth to it, for real comfort and grip. This has been topped with a rosewood fingerboard and leads to the 17-degree back-angled headstock, which has been equipped with a set of Grover milk-bottle rotomatic tuners.
At the other end of the Gibson ES-339’s neck is the classic pairing of a Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, firmly anchoring the guitar with optimal resonance and sustain.
The Gibson ES-339 Electric Guitar has been loaded up with two legendary Burstbucker pickups. A Burstbucker 1 pickup gives you the ability to replicate huge rhythm tones whilst the Burstbucker 2 is there to give you astonishing lead tones. All of this power can be controlled via the independent tone and volume controls as well as a 3-way pickup switching system to give you ultra quick sound changes when required.
Finally, the addition of some new twists such as rolled neck binding for additional comfort and capacitor changes for less treble cut than previous models give this rendition of the Gibson Memphis ES-339 Electric Guitar all that it takes to be a legend in the making.
