The Birth of a Legend
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.
The Epiphone ES-339 features a reduced size laminated Maple body with asolid center block. The SlimTaper TM "D" profile 24.75" Mahogany neck has 22 jumbo frets with a 1-11/16" nut and is hand-set and glued with a Mortise and Tenon neck joint with Titebond TM Glue. The 12" radius neck also features a Rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl inlays, much like the original. Single ply cream binding on the fingerboard and body completes the classic look and looks superb on all the ES-339's finishes which include Cherry, Ebony, Natural, and Vintage Sunburst.
The Epiphone ES-339 features a slim taper D-profile set neck, maple body with centerblock, Epiphone ProBucker pickups and high quality hardware including medium-jumbo frets and premium tune-o-matic bridge.
Tap into the great character and sustain of a semi-acoustic, but retain some of the low-mid resonance of a solid body. The Epiphone ES339 is a great compromise for a rocker who wants a tone that strikes a great balance between solid-body and acoustic sounds!
Epiphone introduces the ES 339 PRO - an instrument with roots firmly planted in the classic era when Epiphone's Kalamazoo factory was producing some rock's most legendary instruments. Featuring a reduced size ES-style body with Alnico Classic PROTM humbucker pickups, the new ES339 PRO semi-hollowbody from Epiphone turns back the clock while breaking new ground in sound and style.
