Introduced in 2007, the Gibson ES-339 follows the successful path of the ES-335 thinline archtop electric line but with a body just larger than a Les Paul.
These guitars are built at the Gibson Memphis Custom Shop, and are very popular with working musicians who want a more compact instrument. The ES-339 also features the 'Memphis Tone Circuit', which adds a .001uF capacitor and a low-value resistor (150-300k ohms) between the input and middle lugs of the volume pot. This circuit helps retain treble when turning down the volume control.

This cherry-finish example dates to 2011, and is in excellent original condition. The original case is in similarly great condition.
