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!

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?

Specs, Sound and Playability Better Than Gibson's 339

By MICHAEL DAMICO

from Farmingville New York

Comments about Epiphone ES-339 PRO Electric Guitar:

I went to Gibson's page and compared specs, and it's pretty much even, until you notice that the epiphone model has the 2 coil taps and Gibson doesn't, however Gibson also manages to still chamber the body on a semi hollow guitar for some reason, glad i got the epiphone. I just got mine in the black finish and let me tell you, it's far more comfortable to play than the larger es335 models and it does not sacrifice any of the sound. I can't believe the quality guitars epiphone is putting out now-a-days, i love this guitar it's so effortless to play and after having it strapped on for over an hour it's still so light you can barely notice. Buy this guitar you won't be sorry.

      Comments about Epiphone ES-339 PRO Electric Guitar:

      I rated myself as a novice for this guitar because I have played an Acoustic guitar in Church off and on for over 30 years, and my style has been for Southern Gospel which is mainly strumming chords. I love playing rhythm but the hands and fingers have not wanted to cooperate with me lately (age,carpel tunnel, arthritis)
      so I decided to try a different route, which brought me to this Epiphone ES 339 Pro Vintage Sunburst.. It is a very nice guitar with great sound, between all the pick up options and coil tapping, individual tone and volume controls you can find a sound suitable for your style. This guitar chords very easily which absolutely makes it easier to play for longer without all the wrist and finger pain. I tried several different styles of guitar before picking this beauty up, Strats, full hollow body arch tops, thin bodied acoustic etc. and I just couldn't find the tone and feel I wanted, so I was about at the decision my guitar playing days were about done when I found the ES-339 at the local Guitar Center. From the first chord I was amazed how well this guitar felt in the hands, beautiful tone and that was unplugged no amp.. I played this guitar for a while, just really enjoying playing again, perfect sized body, tone etc. so needless to say I bought it and have enjoyed ever since. My son's play, one has an Epiphone Les Paul and another has a Fender Squier Bass, also an Alesis Electronic Drum set, and it has been great getting to jam along with them ( even tho quite loud and sometimes just noise ) . Sorry for the detailed story but while researching guitars I rarely saw one that mentioned an electric that was a great strumming, rhythm style guitar, and I wanted to express how easy this guitar plays, especially coming from acoustic to electric. It has allowed me to enjoy playing guitar again.. Enjoy and play on.

      Very Nice Little Axe!

      By Dan Dubois

      from Clwr, Fl

      Comments about Epiphone ES-339 PRO Electric Guitar:

      I have been playing guitar since the 60's in all kinds venues and for all kinds of crowds and with all kinds of guitars. And I have NOT played any Epiphone guitars since the 60's, when I had a bad experience with one. It was by chance that this one caught me. When I first played it at the Guitar Center store, I was both surprised and pleased with the quality of construction that it made me look closer. The sound was even more surprising. WOW! I needed just this kind of ax to play at our youth hall and this MORE than filled the bill! So I bought it. I brought it home and put it through it's paces. This guitar, like the man said, when you put your own preference of strings on it (I use Gibson Vintage) and set it up properly, it will put a smile on your face that will make people wonder what has BLESSED you so much! The fingerboard is pure Gibson-esqe, and plays just as well. And it plays ALL the way up very easily once it is properly set up. I am currently working out with this guitar and will use it as my primary ax (tells you something?) for a little while until I get the feel of it and it's capabilities. And you would find that there are many with the coil-splitting feature. Sorry to "go off" but there is a LOT to be said about this great little ax. BTW: I called and was going to change out the humbuckers with some matched 57 PAF Classics, but I decided to wait and see what these do. They sound pretty good... I highly recommend this guitar. It is a lot lighter than my LP's, it is high quality in sound and construction, and worth every penny they ask. I feel I am VERY BLESSED to have it in my arsenal.

      Very Close!

      By Michael Haver

      from Athens

      Comments about Epiphone ES-339 PRO Electric Guitar:

      This guitar has been one of my favorites as far as tone and versatility go. The whole idea of a semi-hollow body guitar as small as a Les Paul is just incredible. It's just a huge chunk of innovation in one piece of wood. I love the coil tapping in this guitar. The versatility is incredible on this guitar. I can go from playing blues on a blues junior to metal on my dark terror. The only problems I have are the tone and the feel. It's an Epiphone so never expect a Gibson, but it's not far from a Gibson. The quality is incredible, but the neck is a little slow from the finish. It feels like an epiphone rather than a real 339. The Pups are great. There's just so many different tones that come out of this thing. When the gain get high, these guys can get really muddy though. Watch out for that if you like high gain music. Overall, it is a very fun guitar that will do everything but classical guitar. I would definitely buy a new one if it was stolen.

      Comments about Epiphone ES-339 PRO Electric Guitar:

      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.

      Blow away.

      By Steve Neme

      from Grand Prairie, TX

      Comments about Epiphone ES-339 PRO Electric Guitar:

      I bought this guitar in the Cherry Red color after waiting months to see if it would ever come in (these guitars were crazy back ordered at the time). The red wouldn't have been my first choice, based on the photos, but this guitar is way more beautiful in person. Really, the red with the wood grain is amazing looking. Anyway, looks aside, this is going to be my favorite guitar of all my guitars, I can already tell. The Humbuckers are loud and wonderful, and though I haven't yet found use for the coil-tap, it's a nice feature. Grover tuners are an added feature, and I have had no issues with shoddy workmanship. The guitar has a little more weight than I expected, but is about the same as any Epiphone Dot I've picked up. I like that it doesn't feel as bulky as the Dot, because of the smaller dimensions, of course. This guitar is well worth the money, and if you can get one, do it. They are well worth the wait.

      Comments about Epiphone ES-339 PRO Electric Guitar:

      Needed to get another ES. Tried out a Dot. Fit, finish and sound weren't what I expected from ratings given ("F" holes were sort of sloppy and rough fret sides, some fish eye's or orange peel in the finishing job and lacked a neck binding that my ES-335 had). Saw the Cherry Epihpone ES-339 on the top rack and played it for about five minutes.

      Nice fit (less cumbersome to play and handle than my ES 335), nice sound after changing out the strings to 11's, changing out the plastic nut and a tweak to the strut.

      Very small, minute difference in finish quality (one quarter inch by a centimeter width in the both sides of the binding of the body had missed some scrapping of red staining), but other than that, great value for the money for a mass produced guitar.

      Great Guitar

      By Alan Cargile

      from Bimingham, AL

      Comments about Epiphone ES-339 PRO Electric Guitar:

      I have owned my ES339Pro for about 3 months now and I simply love! I The quality is outstanding and I found no flaws at all. After I put my preferred strings on it and set it up the way I like it, I was absolutely blown away! It really does feel like a LP when playing it with the nice slim neck and the body feels great in your arms. It sounds fantastic and I don't plan on changing the pups like I usually do. I highly recommend this instrument.
