The Gibson ES-339 is a great sounding, fast playing member of the ES series of guitars. It has the typical arrangement of triple ply maple and poplar body, complete with a mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard. The electronics are standard fair for Gibson as well-- A pair of '57 classic humbuckers wired to independent volume and tone pots with a three way toggle. The antique red finish is beautiful and has a timeless sort of vibe to it. Very cool.


The 60/30 neck on this 339 is decently slim and fast playing. Lead lines on the upper registers are unhindered with the 339's amply sized cutaway. The 339 has a good knack for rejecting unwanted noise and feedback with higher levels of gain. The 339 is around 2 or so pounds lighter than my les pauls, but it feels much lighter than the numbers might suggest. Tuning stability is pretty decent on this guitar.


I Played the 339 through an Egnater Renegade and Mesa Mark V. Mesa Boogie 4x12. No pedals.

The 339 is a very responsive instrument. Clean or Heavy, the guitar maintains a sense of range. The aggressiveness of your pick attack will alter the sounds you get greatly. On the clean side of things, the low end is very warm and full. Arpeggios have sweetness and clarity. On the gain side of things, the guitar has less than ideal intelligibility when playing chords, but the 339 really blooms when playing lead passages. Solos really scream on this guitar and the ability to get controlled feedback so easily really furthers the experience in this regard.


The Gibson ES-339 is a great crossover for players who enjoy either les paul's or the more closely related Es-335. You get a lot of versatility from this instrument. Blues, Rock, Metal, It doesn't really matter. The guitar does have it's own voice that you may or may not fall in love with. For the asking price, you're getting a beautiful, well made instrument that is bound to hold it's value for a long time.
