Gibson' ES-339 has long been popular with players seeking the legendary feel and tone of the seminal ES-335 œsemi-acoustic electric, but in more compact proportions. Now Gibson Memphis brings a hot-rodded, ready-to-rock rendition to the table in the form of the new ES-339 Studio. Stripped of everything but the essentials for bone-crunching rock tone and primed for the utmost performance power, the ES-335 Studio is ready to create its own new legends in the world of the œsemi.

The ES-339 has the same iconic thinline, double-cutaway body styling that' instantly familiar from Gibson guitars seen in the hands of Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Alvin Lee and countless others, but its proportions have been reduced to a more manageable package. What' more, the f-holes have been eliminated to create a sleek-looking top that is also more resistant to feedback. The guitar' electronics have been pared down to a single, super-hot Dirty Fingers Plus humbucking pickup in the bridge position, along with a single volume and tone pot.

The no-nonsense ethos continues in the ES-339 Studio' looks”with minimal adornments, no body or fingerboard binding, no pickguard, and your choice of Ebony Black or Midnight Blue in smooth-satin nitrocellulose lacquer. Black-chrome hardware, a black Corian nut, and tortoiseshell truss rod cover and neck joint cover complete the picture. Playing is believing: check it out now at your authorized Gibson Memphis dealer.

Body and Neck
The ES-339 Studio is a more compact rendition of the original 335s of the late 1950s, with a semi-hollowbody made from laminated maple and a solid maple center block, but without the traditional f-holes. The result is a blend of the traditional archtop' looks and sonic depth, and the solidbody' improved playing comfort, sustain, and resistance to feedback. The neck is made from solid maple, and topped with an unbound fingerboard made from baked maple, inlaid with simple pearloid dot position markers.

Pickups and Electronics
To make this a œsemi that was born to rock, the ES-339 Studio is equipped with a single Dirty Fingers Plus humbucker, one of Gibson' hottest pickups. For unbridled crunch and wailing lead tones, all with singing sustain, this pickup was designed for pure rock fury, yet it boasts surprising clarity for mellower moments. A single volume and tone control with ergonomic positioning keep it simple.

Hardware and Plastics
The ES-339 Studio carries a tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, and high-quality Grover Rotomatic tuners, all in black chrome. There' no pickguard, but a tortoiseshell truss rod cover and neck joint cover lend an alternative touch of class. The controls carry black Top-Hat knobs.

Case and Coverage
Every ES-339 Studio comes protected in an embroidered black Gibson gig bag, and includes a Certificate of Authenticity and owner' manual.

Comments about Gibson ES-339 Studio Electric Guitar:

I'm a hollowbody Guy. I own 6 Epiphones ( a few old Sheritons, dots, and Tom Delonge signatures). Like I said, I own two Epiphone Tome Delonge guitars that are pretty much the same thing. The difference is the color, no f-holes in this, and a tone knob is added to this. I use the guitar in the studio and live and it is great. The Dirty Fingers humbucker is my new go to; before it was the Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates in both the neck and bridge.

I don't mind the color and makes it stand out from all the other guitars and the no f-holes change the tone ever-so-slightly which makes this guitar unique from the others. The tone knob helps off-set the single pickup. I say go for it if you're thinking about pulling the trigger.

Comments about Gibson ES-339 Studio Electric Guitar:

Ya take what is probably a excellent affordable es-339 and paint it the ugliest two colors available. I don't know if it is just me but I just couldn't get past the color options.
