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.

Late November I bought two guitars and accessories for about $1,800 for my son and me. Thirty years after my last guitar purchase, I was going to start playing again, with my son, a dream come true. Except it's been a nightmare because about 45 days later, the input jack fell inside the guitar. Guitar Center (GC) says it's covered under warranty, but it has to be shipped to the manufacturer. Who wants to do that? No one. Guitar Center says they'll fix it.

It sat at GC for weeks; something about a new employee and a drug test. Time I could've been playing with my son, gone. Eventually, it's ready. I pick it up. No charge due to the inexplicable wait. I get it home, immediately begin playing with my son, and within one hour the input jack fell inside the guitar AGAIN. GC says they'll make sure it doesn't fall back in this time - that it's a flaw with this model - but it will look funky. This doesn't seem right, to sell a product with known flaws. But I agree to it.

After two weeks at GC, time I could've been playing with my son, I pick it up. $32 charge this time. Wasn't expecting that. It's under warranty. It was GC's repair that failed that required the second repair. You told us there are known problems with this model. But, I'm charged $32, and I pay it. I get it home and immediately begin playing with my son. But the hum is so loud that it is unplayable. GC says to bring it back a third time.

This guitar will never be right. It's a lemon. There was no confidence in the guitar tech's voice when he told me he could try to put insulation on the wires. It didn't hum before. Why does it hum now? I have no confidence that insulation will fix it. I have no confidence this guitar will ever be right. I have no confidence this is the last time I will have to bring it to GC. Will you please make this right and give me a credit so I can get a guitar that lasts for more than hour and get back to playing instead of running back and forth to GC?

    Comments about Epiphone ES-339 PRO Electric Guitar:

    I picked this guitar up on a local trade. I had been wanting an ES-339 and the trade was in my favor so i pulled the trigger. The guitar was in great shape with good quality stock components. The push/pull option was a great touch; however, for me not necessary. The pickups themselves tend to be hit and miss... mine were middle of the road and could have lived with them either way.
    I chose to do the complete re-working on the guitar and it's no an absolute gem.
    I replaced the bridge with a roller bridge to add a bit more contact and tuning stability (figured if i'm going to do it might as well go all in), I replaced the volume and tone pots with CTS pots. Then i swapped out the pickups for Classic '57s. The stock Alnico Pros are a tip of the hat to '57s but not even close. Tone caps were replaced with Vintage Russian PIOs and wired with vintage cloth wire. after a few adjustments to the neck and a full setup this is a true gem of a guitar.

      Comments about Epiphone ES-339 PRO Electric Guitar:

      I am a long time musician (50 years +) playing guitar and other instruments. I wanted an electric semi-hollow body guitar to add back to my collection (Strat, Tele and LP). In the past I owned a Guild Starfire (ES 335 clone) and hated it. Way too cumbersome to play and handle. I sold it. But, I still wanted that ES 335 sound. I went to my local GC store and tried out an ES 339 Pro after seeing it online. It felt and sounded really good so I ordered one in the Natural finish along with the Epiphone case. IMHO: (when my guitar arrived) the fit and finish was gorgeous and flawless with nice wood grain showing through. Build quality was top notch. Straight out of the box the setup seemed good. All I needed to do was tune it. Mine came with grover deluxe tuners. My main genre is: soul, r&b, disco and funk. I also play a little blues, classic rock and 60's stuff. The guitar sounds great especially in the neck humbucker pickup position which can give you that George Benson sound. What's really cool about this guitar is the coil taping switches. You can actually get close to a Fender Strat and Tele sound. I also own a Line6 pod which allows the 339 to extend the guitar's sound palette even more. My 339 Pro is my second Epiphone purchase. My first was an LP Std Plus made in China. It too was manufactured as nice as the 339 Pro. My two Fenders mentioned above are MIM's but IMHO are a small notch below the quality of the Epiphones. I have read a number of reviews on different internet sites regarding the Epiphone 339. Some people like this guitar, some don't. Others just prefer the Gibson brand. It's a personal and budget decision. But I close with this, whether you buy an Epiphone MIC, Gibson USA, Fender American, Fender MIM or another guitar brand made where ever its made, your not going to be able to play any better than you play right now. So just get the one you like, the one that feels right and, just play!

          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.

                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.

                    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.)
