These Epiphones are not $2,500. guitars, I wanted one for the fact I know where the basic issues are with them and most of the time can be easily addressed. This is the case with my new Epiphone ES-339 I recently purchased at the sale price from Guitar Center. Wow, what a bargain considering I almost bought the guitar a week prior to the sale at regular price, which is still a great deal for a semi-hollow body ES. I'm not even going to complain about what I did to make this guitar comparable to a Gibson because I enjoy performing my own set-ups, and I would have gone through it regardless. The guitar came very playable and nearly in tune, but maybe a half step down to prevent stress during shipping. The guitar came with equipped with 0.10 gauge strings, but I'm not sure if they were the advertised D'Addario's as the ends were not colored, and they seemed a little 'brittle' in tone. I played the guitar for three days to get a feel for it before attempting to make any improvements. During initial set-up, I noticed that the low E, A, and G strings went to their extreme adjustments to get near perfect intonation, all three were sharp. I suspected the bridge as these are the same bridges on the Epiphone Les Paul's that are set-up with .09 gauge strings from the factory. I also lowered the pick-ups (bridge and neck) as they were way too hot at the set height. I purchased a set of D'Addario NYXL 9-46 and installed after cleaning and conditioning the fretboard, then hand polishing the frets. The 339 felt like a totally different guitar, for the better, so much I would put it up against a Gibson. I bought a Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro II last year from Guitar Center in West Palm, and the neck on the Epiphone feels better. Unplugged the guitar has a nice acoustic tone with no dull or bad spots, no fret buzz. The pots, coil splits, and selector switch are top notch and silent. The guitar is worth every penny and some. With a little love, this is a winner for certain.

I purchased this at the closest Guitar Center to where I live which is 90 minutes away. I love the look of it and the size was a plus, too. Plucked it a little bit in the store, it was the display model and I could tell it had been rode hard and put away wet too many times. they did not have a new one in stock so I took a chance and purchased it. When I got it home and started playing it more that I did in the store i noticed fret buzz on the fourth fret with the E, A, and D strings. didn't think much of it, figured I will just take it to my guitar guy and get the fret adjusted. I took it to the luthier in Ann Arbor, Mi and when he started looking at it he was not impressed with what he was seeing. He laid his straight edge across the frets and it was rocking harder that Van Halen. He started poking around at other frets and found the same thing. He also got his dial gauge out to check for correct depth and in some spots the frets didn't even register. He also found some loose frets. He said he could do a fret job on it for $200 bucks if I wanted him to, but he suggested I take it back, which I did. Guitar Center was great about it, though, They took it back and let me exchange it for another guitar. Ended up leaving with a Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro. Payed a little more but well worth it. Moral of the story: Don't buy the display model!

    Comments about Epiphone ES-339 PRO Electric Guitar:

    I bought my es339 after doing a ton of research. After replacing the nut (tusq xl) and getting a setup, guitar plays perfect. Finish was perfect, pickups are solid, tuners are quality. Only con I have is the cheap emblem on the pick guard...

      Comments about Epiphone ES-339 PRO Electric Guitar:

      I own a Gibson Les Paul and a Gibson ES135. I evolved from Fender to Gibson through the years because I just prefer the sound, tone and the way a Gibson feels & plays. The Gibson ES 135 is the larger body style. I love it but it can be uncomfortable if you are sitting for long periods of time. It gets up in your ribs.

      I was really interested in the smaller body size of the Epiphone ES 339 but I was a little concerned about the craftsmanship and sound of an Epiphone because I hadn't really ever played one. I drove 90 miles to my nearest Guitar Center to check one out.

      Looking at it and holding it, I was pretty impressed. I took it in the little demo room to give it a whirl. It played great and sounded very good considering it was off the rack.

      It did need a setup and I paid Guitar Center to do that and I also added a bone nut. The one that comes with it is plastic.

      After taking it home and plugging it up to my setup, I was really very impressed with the guitar. It compares well with the Gibsons I own. The craftsmanship, sound and the feel of the guitar is incredible for the money.

      I was going back and forth on whether to buy the 335 or 339 but the smaller body of the 339 is incredibly comfortable to play. I absolutely love it!

      Overall, I couldn't be more pleased with the guitar. I spent a little money on a setup and a bone nut and am amazed at the value of guitar I got for the money.

      If you love semi-hollow bodies but don't want to pay the Gibson price, I can say with confidence that this guitar delivers! Another reviewer mentioned that the guitar helped him play more and got him enthused about playing. I can absolutely second that!

      I've been playing for 20+ years. This guitar has definitely got me excited about playing again! First of all, it's absolutely beautiful (vintage sunburst)! It holds it's own against the Gibsons I own and the smaller body of the ES 339 is very nice! Amazing guitar for the money. Great value!

        Great value for a beginning or intermediate player whose focus is blues/jazz but also likes to have a single coil pickup sound occasionally. Neck and fretboard are comfortable. Resonance is above average. Finish and build is quite good for a MIC instrument. Pick ups sound good. Tone and volume knobs are cheap looking-easily replaceable. Purchased Epi case designed for this guitar-very good quality.

          Comments about Epiphone ES-339 PRO Electric Guitar:

          Unbelievable quality on this guitar - the first semi solid body guitar I have owned since my 1966 ES355. Many tone variations are available with the coil split. I have no intention of replacing the pickups as the stock ones are great. Classic Rock, Traditional Country and 50's are what I play. This thing plays and sounds fantastic. It comes with 10's on it and I will change to 9's, that's what I am used to. You will not be disappointed.

              Comments about Epiphone ES-339 PRO Electric Guitar:

              I play jazz guitar in ensemble and combo settings and have been a long time epiphone fan. I own the 335 dot and lp studio ephiphone guitars and love them both. I bought the 339 dot to get the 335 dot semihollow sound without the size. I was not disappointed. If anything I like the sound of the 339 dot better. The construction is impeccable. The humbucker pickups can be switched to single coil by lifting up on the tone pot. I like the humbucker sound so I doubt if I will every use it.

              FYI I play my guitars through a fender mustang 3 v2 amp (gain 3, volume 8, treble 3, mid 10, bass 5, reverb 2. I also max out my guitar tone and volume pots and set the pickup to rhythm.)

                      I have only been playing about a year and a half and have been using a pretty good acoustic/electric, but wanted a guitar that would be easier to bar chord and be easier on my wrists and hands after long practices. I am 64 and don't want to develop problems the longer I play. I researched this for almost a year and finally tried different brands at GC in Sarasota. This guitar has a great feel, is easy to chord and has several different tones so I can adjust based on the song being played. A great guitar. I bought the sunburst and the picture does not do it justice. This is a beautiful guitar.
