Gibson Memphis ES-339 2018

$ 3472.58

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. The body is comprised of a lightly arched three-ply maple/poplar/maple top and back with 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. 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.
