About the Gibson ES-339

The Gibson ES-339 is one of those great ideas that made guitarists across the world smile and ask 'why has this not been done before?' The Gibson ES-339 is essentially an ES-335 with a shrunken down body. The neck is exactly the same in terms of scale length and so on, it just has a smaller, semi hollow body that is roughly the size of a Les Paul. This provides a 'manageable' ES guitar for those who have trouble with the size of the admittedly large ES-335 but still want that lovely warm, open sound.

The Gibson ES-339 is a versatile guitar, useful for a great many genres. It is available in a range of finishes and typically comes armed with two Gibson humbuckers and the customary 24.75" scale length neck. These have become a popular choice for lots of players in the few short years they've been available due to their uncompromising tone matched with their easy to handle size.
