2016 Model w/ hardshell case & original shipping box


The ES-339 became an instant modern classic by "compacting" the iconic ES-335 body shape in a lighter, more comfortably-playing guitar, and the new 2016 rendition from Gibson Memphis is better than ever.
Compact semi-style body The elegant shape of the ES-339 represents a clever downscaling of the legendary ES-335
Small-block elegance The small block inlays in the rosewood fingerboard tie this guitar to the great ES-335s of the '60s
Redesigned neck By redesigning the dimensions, Gibson Memphis has improved the strength of the new ES-339's necks
Historic truss rod Our historic truss rod has no tube, a proven known to enhance the guitar's resonance and sustain
Burstbucker pickups Burstbucker 1 & 2 pickups are made in the image of the hallowed PAF humbucker, with a little extra power in the bridge position
Titanium saddles Durable titanium bridge saddles provide enhanced sustain, presence and clarity
Locking stopbar tailpiece A locking stopbar tailpiece improves vibrational transfer to maximize sustain
High-gloss nitro finish Our intensive hand-buffed finish uses nitrocellulose lacquer and finer compounds for a high-quality sheen
