This exciting edition of the Gibson Custom ES-339 electric guitar comes in a stunning Pelham blue or Inverness green finish. This beauty is the perfect semi-hollow guitar for solid body players. It goes where no guitar has gone before with a bold, semi-hollow tone that is rich with expressive, even stinging, overtones. The Gibson ES-339 has some exciting enhancements including Memphis Tone electronics, the 30/60 slender neck profile, and reduced dimensions and weight. With its vintage vibe and modern performance, the Gibson Custom ES-339 is a great all-around electric guitar for any style of music.
Memphis Tone electronics
Memphis Tone circuitry uses 500K audio taper pots that operate with an interactive load that preserves high end as you turn down the volume. The loading effect preserves the full-bodied tone with rich midrange and singing sustain from the '57 Classic humbuckers while adding a very sweet bite. Another difference is that the volume is very smooth, rolling off in even increments along with the numbers on the knobs. Since they operate more like how we hear (logarithmically), the guitar's controls work the way the player thinks they should. So when the guitarist turns down the volume the highs are still there.
Developed in assistance from guitar guru Jon Schwartz, the 30/60 slender neck is a '60s style neck with an extra .030" front-to-back to preserve the semi-hollowbody tone, sustain, and feel while providing smooth playability.
Reduced dimensions and weight
The Gibson Custom ES-339 builds on the success of the semi-hollowbody guitars first introduced by Gibson in 1958 with the ES-335. Lighter and more compact than a traditional semi-hollow electric guitar, the ES-339 retains the distinct semi-hollowbody electric tone that powered so many hit records and landmark performances.
Outer rim output jack
Here's a feature Gibson Custom ES-339 players have been wanting: The output jack is mounted on the outer rim. No more cable crossing the body, spoiling the guitar's clean looks and getting in your way.
The Gibson ES-339 guitar's two '57 classic humbuckers with 3-way pickup selection plus individual volume and tone controls provide the incredibly versatile sounds that make the semi-hollow electric guitar famous for its use in jazz, rock, blues, country, and nearly every other style you can think of. Quality Kluson tuners keep retuning time to a minimum, and nickel hardware enhances the great looks.
The ES-339 electric guitar comes with a Gibson Custom Shop hardshell case and a Certificate of Authenticity.

If you are looking for that semi-hollow sound with a mix of a LP in a smaller size than the 335, then your search stops here. What a great guitar! I can get all sorts of tones through the 339. Since I got my 339 my strat remains virtually unplayed. This guitar is so versatile. I use the volume knob much more than the tone knob. It's very useful in getting those clean tones without fiddling around with your amp and pedals. Highly recommended
