Maple / Poplar / Maple Body
Constructed from a hollow Maple/Poplar/Maple body the ES-339 produces a bright, tight and precise tone with a balanced low and crisp high response. Additionally the "F" shaped sound holes allow unique vibration circulation within the body creating a warm and resonant tone similar to larger acoustic guitars. Finished with an attractive top contour which is complimented by the faded cherry lacquer the ES-339 not only sounds great but looks extremely impressive.
Rich Hollowbody Tone in a Compact Size
The Gibson Memphis ES-339 is the perfect choice for guitarists who grew up on solid body guitars but crave the warmth and tonal complexity of a hollowbody. Taking the classic ES-335 body shape and reducing the scale to provide a more comfortable and lightweight semi-hollowbody guitar the ES-339 resonates harmonic richness, while its solid Maple centre block offers feedback resistance and enhanced sustain.
Historic Maple Neck & Truss Rod
Featuring a traditional "C" profile Maple neck with re-designed dimensions the Gibson ES-339 offers an effortless playability whilst the set-in construction ensures maximum vibration transferal for long sustain and increased resonance. With an added thickness to the headstock stem the ES-339 delivers a stronger and more stable construction ideal for hard wearing playing. The headstock adjustable historic truss rod provides superior adjustability due to the Teflon coating, larger diameter and robust Brass anchor.
Bone Nut & Rolled Neck Binding
The Gibson 2016 ES-339 employs a carefully fitted bone nut to provide an improved tone and sustain over traditional plastic and tusq nuts as it improves the vibration transfer between the string and tuning machines without dampening the tone. Featuring a Rosewood fingerboard finished with Pearloid block inlays the 2016 ES-339 provides a smooth and quick playability whilst the rolled neck binding is rounded off to allow a comfortable fit to the contours of the hand.
Burstbucker Humbucking Pickups
Incorporating a set of Burstbucker humbucking pickups designed to recreate the tone of the classic Gibson PAF pickups the Gibson Memphis ES-339 produces a rich vintage tone. The Burstbucker 1 in the bridge position provides a medium output with a well-rounded and creamy tone due to the alnico magnets and under-wound construction whilst the Burstbucker 2 in the neck position delivers a slightly hotter tone similar to '57 classic pickups.
Gibson Memphis Series
Every Gibson Memphis guitar receives an ultra-precise Plek Pro setup, which optimizes the fingerboard and nut for perfect action and intonation. Gibson's world-class luthiers took painstaking care with every detail of the ES-339, including fine touches like CTS pots, ceramic capacitors, nickel hardware, and a scrumptious nitrocellulose lacquer finish. These finishing touches add to the amazing tone and vibe of this incredible guitar, living up to the ES Series' legacy.
