Classic semi-hollowbody sound from a solidbody-sized guitar in limited edition colors.
Epiphone introduces the much anticipated ES-339 PRO - an instrument with its roots planted firmly in the classic era that helped define the Epiphone and Gibson Kalamazoo factory as a leader in cutting edge instruments. Today, this new semi-hollowbody from Epiphone turns back the clock while simultaneously rocketing the player-favorite into the future.
The Birth of a Legend: Introduced in the late '50s, the ES series became an instant classic by bringing the feel of an archtop to players who had wholly embraced solid body classics like the Les Paul. The first in the ES series, the ES-335 became an instant success but for many players, its body was slightly too big. The new ES-339 PRO is the perfect remedy, featuring body dimensions that are smaller while still retaining the bell-like tones of all ES series guitars as well as the classic shape.
Classic Construction: The Epiphone ES-339 PRO features a reduced size laminated Maple body with a solid center block. The SlimTaper™ "D" profile 24.75" Mahogany neck has 22 jumbo frets with a 1-11/16" nut and is hand-set and glued with a Mortise and Tenon neck joint with Titebond™ Glue. The 12" radius neck also features a Rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl inlays, much like the original. Single ply silver-sparkle binding on the fingerboard and body completes the classic look and looks superb on all the ES-339 PRO's finishes which include Cherry, Ebony, Natural, and Vintage Sunburst.
Epiphone Barrier Breaking Electronics: The new Epiphone ES-339 PRO pickups are set up to provide a huge variety of sound choices for the modern guitarist. For those who are used to carrying two guitars to gigs, the ES-339 PRO will solve that problem once and for all. Now, you can play any gig and any style with just one guitar--the Epiphone ES-339 PRO. The ES-339 PRO's fabulous Alnico Classic PRO™ humbucker pickups can make an infinite variety of tones thanks to the 3-way Pickup Selector which features a push/pull coil tap. The neck pickup volume pot and the bridge pickup volume pot each feature an easy-touch push/pull coil tap, making it easy to switch back and forth between single coil or classic humbucker sounds. The all-metal heavy duty Epiphone 1/4" output jack gives you a lifetime of worry-free use.
Epiphone Hardware You Can Trust: The classic Epiphone hardware you've come to know and trust makes the ES-339 PRO a must-have guitar. Featuring Epiphone's LockTone™ Tune-o-matic bridge and LockTone™ Stopbar tailpiece, the ES-339 PRO sports all nickel hardware along with Grover™ 14:1 ratio Vintage machine heads with Tombstone buttons. Case sold separately.
