What we say:The ES339 is a semi-acoustic for players who grew up playing smaller bodied guitars like the Les Paul. This is a reduced size ES335 dot with the same comfortable neck dimensions and easy fret access. However, there are a couple of nice additions to make this instrument a whole other prospect. The pickups have been upgraded to great sounding bluesy Alnico Classics; medium output purr like the best PAF's of the vintage era. It doesn't stop there though: the ES339 also has coil splitting circuits to convert the humbuckers into single coils. In other words, this guitar is a Dot that fits in a regular gig bag and has humbucker girth AND single coil glass. A highly versatile design. This one is in the finish of bluesmen the world over, Cherry red.
First introduced in the late ’50s, the ES series became an instant rock classic, bringing the feel and look of an archtop to a generation of players who had grown up playing solid body guitars like the Les Paul. The ES-335, the first in the ES series, was an instant success. But for many players who were used to smaller solid body guitars, the ES-335 felt too bulky to play on stage. The new ES-339 PRO is the perfect remedy, featuring smaller body dimensions while still retaining the bell-like tone the ES series is famous for.
