Information:

This ES 339 version goes where no guitar has gone before with a bold, new semi-hollow tone that is rich with expressive, even stinging, overtones. The ES-339 has some exciting enhancements including Memphis Tone electronics, the 30/60 slender neck profile, and reduced dimensions and weight.

The ES-339 Figured builds on the success of the semi-hollowbody guitars first introduced by Gibson in 1958 with the ES-335. Lighter and more compact than a traditional semi-hollow guitar, the ES-339 Figured retains the distinct semi-hollowbody electric tone that powered so many hit records and landmark performances. Developed in assistance from guitar guru Jon Schwartz, the 30/60 slender neck is a ’60s style neck with an extra .030″ front-to-back to preserve the semi-hollowbody tone, sustain, and feel while providing smooth playability.

Memphis Tone circuitry uses 500K audio taper pots that operate with an interactive load that preserves high end as you turn down the volume. The loading effect preserves the full-bodied tone with rich midrange and singing sustain from the ’57 Classic humbuckers while adding a very sweet bite. Another difference: the volume is very smooth, rolling off in even increments along with the numbers on the knobs. Since they operate more like how we hear (logarithmically), the controls work the way the player thinks they should.

Two ’57 Classic Humbuckers with 3-way pickup selection plus individual volume and tone controls provide the incredibly versatile sounds that make the semi-hollow electric famous for its use in jazz, rock, blues, country, and nearly every other style you can think of. Quality Kluson tuners keep retuning time to a minimum, and nickel hardware enhances the great looks.

This ES-339 was sold in late 2016 and remained in as new condition, flawless, with only minor playwear here and there, just to be really picky and talk about it as it shows like new even when you have it in hands. Protective plastic on the pickguard is still on. It comes with a Gibson Custom Shop hardshell case and a Certificate of Authenticity.
