9.9 of 10 Condition (some superficial scratches on pickguard)
Gibson Custom's ES-339 semi-hollowbody electric guitar takes the legendary sound of Gibson's larger ES Series guitars, and delivers it in a smaller body size that's perfect for guitarists more comfortable with solidbody instruments. It sports the same musical versatility and incredible playability as its big brother, the ES-335, which was the guitar of choice for legends such as Freddie King, Chuck Berry, and Otis Rush. The Gibson Custom ES-339 provides the same rich resonance and harmonic complexity that semi-hollowbodies are revered for, with bodily proportions that are closer to Gibson's LP and SG models. The lightly-arched maple top adorns a semi-hollow maple body, with a solid maple center block that reduces feedback and enhances sustain. No matter what style of music you play, you'll love the uncompromising tone, feel, and look of the Gibson Custom ES-339.
Tonal excellence is yours when you plug the ES-339 into your favorite tube amplifier. Loaded with a pair of '57 Classic humbucking pickups, each with their own volume and tone controls, you'll be able to dial in chiming country tones as easily as savagely distorted rock tones. The neck pickup gives you classic hollowbody-style tones for everything from smooth jazz to dirty blues. Flip to the bridge position, and you'll command sounds covering everything from bright and clean to raw and mean.
Gibson Custom designed the ES-339 to have the same tonal appeal as its predecessor, the ES-335, but with a smaller body style and enhanced sustain. You'll love the tonal complexity provided by the semi-hollowbody, and you'll especially love the resistance to feedback provided by the solid maple center block. Any guitarist of any caliber can appreciate the sound of the ES-339, but guitarists that perform nightly will find it to be a dream come true.
Gibson's Custom Shop took extra care with every detail of the ES-339. Every Gibson Custom guitar receives an ultra-precise Plek Pro setup, which optimizes the fretboard and nut for incredibly accurate intonation and a "just right" feel. And little touches like the quartersawn mahogany neck and the 17-degree headstock angle not only add to the amazing tone and feel, they remain true to the ES Series as well as Gibson's history.
