ES-335 Tone in this Smaller-bodied 339

The Gibson Memphis ES-339 semi-hollowbody electric guitar, introduced in 2007, gives you the legendary sound, playability, and versatility of Gibson's larger ES Series guitars — like the ever-popular ES-335 — in a smaller body size that's ideal for guitarists used to solidbody instruments. This ES-339 VOS has a body that's comprised of a slightly arched three-ply maple/poplar/maple top and back with yellowed single-ply cream binding and a solid maple center block that reduces feedback and enhances sustain. Fitted with a pair of Memphis Historic Spec (MHS) humbuckers (an update) and a fast mahogany neck topped with a rosewood fingerboard, the ES-339 lends itself to just about any musical style you're into. It features retro aged-nickel hardware, while modern updates include the ABR-1 bridge with its titanium saddles, the MTC Plus handwired control assembly, and Grover "milk bottle" Rotomatic tuners in nickel finish.

Hollowbody richness meets solidbody sustain

Gibson Memphis designed the ES-339 to have the same tonal appeal as its big sibling, the ES-335, but with a smaller body style. If you grew up on solidbody guitars but crave the warmth and tonal complexity of a hollowbody, the ES-339 is for you. You'll love the harmonic richness that resonates from the ES-339's semi-hollowbody, and you'll also really appreciate the feedback resistance and enhanced sustain provided by its solid maple center block. Gibson Memphis redesigned the neck dimensions and used low-profile frets for a more comfortable feel. Guitarists of all calibers can appreciate the sound of the ES-339, but if you perform nightly, you'll find it to be a dream come true.

Gibson Memphis ES-339 VOS 6-string Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:

  • ES-335 sound in a smaller-bodied, lighter guitar
  • Grover "milk bottle" Rotomatic tuners with nickel finish for good-looking tuning stability
  • 2 MHS humbuckers deliver authentic tone and appearance with nickel covers
  • Old-school toggle pickup selector, 2 top hat Volume knobs, and 2 top hat Tone controls
  • 3-ply maple/poplar/maple top and back resonate with vintage vibe
  • Weight-relieved maple centerblock for great sustain with less weight
  • Bone nut is dense, tonally stable, and less likely than plastic to bind strings
  • Quartersawn mahogany neck and Adirondack spruce bracing are strong and physically stable
  • Rounded "C" neck shape is super-playable and pays homage to the 335's vintage neck carve
  • Yellowed single-ply cream binding looks like it's been aging for decades
