Constructed from a hollow maple/poplar/maple body, the Gibson ES-339 produces a bright, tight, and precise tone with balanced lows and crisp highs. 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 satin cherry lacquer, the ES-339 not only sounds great but looks beautifully sophisticated.
Rich Hollow Body Tone in a Compact Size
The Gibson Memphis Satin ES-339 is the perfect choice for guitarists who grew up on solid body guitars but craved the warmth and tonal complexity of a hollow body. Taking the classic ES-335 body shape and reducing the scale to provide a more comfortable and lightweight design, the ES-339 resonates harmonic richness associated with other hollow bodies. A solid maple centre block is added to reinforce the hollow body, offering feedback resistance and an enhanced sustain.
Historic Maple Neck & Truss Rod
Featuring a traditional "C" profile maple neck with re-designed dimensions, the Gibson offers an effortless playability whilst the set-in construction ensures maximum vibration transferal for long sustains and increased resonance. With an added thickness to the headstock stem, the ES-339 delivers a strong and stable construction ideal for hard wearing playing. The historic truss rod provides superior adjustability thanks to the Teflon coating, larger diameter and robust Brass anchor.
Bone Nut & Rolled Neck Binding
The Memphis ES-339 employs a carefully fitted bone nut to provide an improved tone and sustain over traditional plastic and tusq nuts, improving the vibration transfer between the strings and tuning machines without dampening the tone. The Rosewood fingerboard is finished with pearloid block inlays to offer 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 guitar produces a beautifully rich, vintage tone. The Burstbucker 1 is located in the bridge position, delivering a medium output with a well-rounded and creamy tone thanks to the alnico magnets and under-wound construction. The Burstbucker 2 is located in the neck position, and 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 optimises 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.
