Compact in size and price, but big on tone.
Gibson's ES-339 found an immediate place in the hearts and hands of guitarists who worshiped the classic ES-335 look, feel and tone, but needed that time-tested versatility in a more compact package. The ES-339 Studio from Gibson Memphis nails all the benefits of its predecessors but with the popular Studio styling, for a no-compromises tone machine offering 100% American-made quality at an unbeatable price.
The elegant lines of the original ES-335 are cleverly drawn down to render a familiar yet more compact playing experience in the ES-339 Studio. Its stripped-down Studio format offers a lack of pickguard and binding with "soft edged" body contour, streamlined controls, and simplified gold headstock logo. A major savings in price and weight comes without losing one ounce of quality, though, as evident in its Grover Rotomatic tuners, TonePros AVR2 bridge and long-anchor tailpiece studs, CTS pots with Orange Drop tone caps, and Gibson's '57 Classic (neck) and hotter Super '57 (bridge) humbucking pickups.
