Up for sale is my Gibson ES339. A 2010 USA (Memphis) Custom Shop model. These guitars don't come up that often...
It is an amazing guitar... I would genuinely like to keep... But I have accumulated way too many guitars and having just purchased another... I now really do need to sell this...
"Antique Vintage Sunburst"
Reasonable offers will of course be considered and are much appreciated. Noting the reasons for sale please no trades.
OVERVIEW
The ES-339 is the next generation from the Gibson Custom Shop iconic ES electric guitars. The guitar has an awesome semi-hollow tone that is rich with expressive, even stinging, overtones. The ES-339 has Memphis Tone electronics, outer rim output jack, and reduced dimensions and weight relative to the ES335.
Memphis Tone electronics
Memphis Tone circuitry utilizes 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 is 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. So when the guitarist turns down the volume the highs are still there!
Outer rim output jack
Here's one ES players have been wanting: The output jack is mounted on the outer rim. No more cable crossing the body, spoiling the guitar's clean looks and and getting in your way.
Reduced dimensions and weight The ES-339 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 retains the distinct semi-hollowbody electric tone that powered so many hit records and landmark performances.
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.
The ES-339 comes with a Gibson Custom Shop hardshell case and a Certificate of Authenticity.
