Embrace the Semi-hollowbody Vibe

Epiphone's ES-339 Pro semi-hollowbody electric guitar has roots in the classic era of rock 'n' roll yet continues to be one of the most sought-after guitars in production. The ES series was introduced in the late '50s, and players soon fell in love with the tone and feel of the archtop series. You get a wide variety of tones, rich harmonics, and long sustain with the ES-339. And thanks to dual coil-tapped humbuckers, you'll be able to get more tones from this ES-339 Pro than ever before! With classic looks, modern construction, and timeless tones, you'll love the Epiphone ES-339 Pro semi-hollowbody electric guitar.

Epiphone ES-339 Pro Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Elegant construction with a reduced-sized maple body
  • Two Alnico Classic Pro humbucking pickups
  • Modern hardware with classic looks
Elegant construction with a reduced-sized maple body

Epiphone's ES-339 Pro sports a reduced-sized laminated maple body with a solid center block for maximum tone and sustain. The mahogany neck features Epiphone's SlimTaper "D" profile shape for a faster, modern feel. And the rosewood fingerboard has a 12" radius, a great radius for both lead and rhythm playing.

Two Alnico Classic Pro humbucking pickups

The ES-339 Pro now gives you entirely new tonal combinations thanks to the two Alnico Classic Pro humbucking pickups with push-pull coil tapping. You can switch between spanky single-coil sounds and beefy humbucking tones just by pushing or pulling the volume knobs. If you rely on multiple guitars for your live performances, you may be able to get all the tone you need with the ES-339 Pro!

Modern hardware with classic looks

While the looks are classic, the quality of the ES-339 Pro's hardware is all modern. You get Epiphone's LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and LockTone Stopbar tailpiece for rock-solid action and stable tuning performance. And the Grover Vintage machine heads keep you in tune while looking sharp.

Outstanding Guitar/Amazing Value

This guitar sounds, feels and looks great!!! A friend lent me his 339 and I didn't expect to like it all that much! I was shocked at how deep and full the notes flow off the fret board. The build quality was first rate. The finish, joints, hardware all fist rate. The red color:classic and beautiful. I have played the Gibson model of this guitar and to be real....I liked the tone and feel of this better! How is that possible!!!!???? I have been a snob and resisted any China made products for years now...but I just kept coming back to playing this guitar!!! When I saw a demo for sale at Sweetwater...I couldn't resist!!!! This is a fine guitar. If you play blues you will enjoy the 339 in a big way!!!! The humbuckers are fine....change them if you want....but you don't have to!!!! The coil tap is fine...adds treble but don't expect SRV out of them. For the price you can't go wrong!!!!

Great guitar with big sound in a smaller size

I have 10 guitars from Les Pauls & Fenders to PRS and this has to be my favorite.The day I opened it up I couldn't put it down.Played it to my fingers got sore.Great for any music style you play plus in a smaller size than the ES-335.clear tones plus coil tapping Humbuckepro pickups.About the same neck as my Les Paul and very ez to play for hours at a gig..Sweetwater does a 55 point insp so it's ready to play right out of the box..Get this and you want be soory.And at a great price.
Music background: playing for 35 yrs.

ES-339 PRO awesome

Seriously, plays as good as any of the three Gibsons I own, right out of the box. It was practically in tune on arrival, no adjustments needed.

Nice for the price.

Keeping in mind that I paid 399 for this guitar. I am giving it 5 stars based on the price and what you are getting for the price. I am blown away by the quality. I have some decent guitars in my stable: Fender Strat American Std, Rickenbacker 620, Gibson Les Paul Std. I also have owned some crappy Squiers from the 1990's and too many other guitars to name, so I know when something is decent or just plain crappy. My main daily guitar is the Strat, so I was looking for a semi-hollow humbucker guitar to add to the mix. This Epiphone ES-339 has really exceeded my expectations. It is made in China, however there is nothing wrong with the neck, it is straight. The frets are good and smooth, the nut is decently cut. The bridge is also decent. The soundhole is clean, there isn't any woodchip/crap inside as I have seen on other low-priced gear. The neck feels thicker than my American Strat, but thinner than my Rickenbacker. It is not hard to get used to the neck. My only big complaint is that the volume and tone knobs do not line up the way I like. So I had to pull them out and line up the numbers the same. The neck pickup is good for mellow stuff like jazz. I will keep it. The bridge pickup will be the first thing I replace when I get the chance. The bridge pickup just doesn't scream enough for blues/rock/metal leads. The coil splitting option on this thing for switching between single coil and humbucker is a nice to have, however I don't think I'll be using it often. I find that the single coil sound on this Epiphone really cannot compare to the wonderful cleans that you can get out of a Fender single coil pickup. Epiphone's attempt at a single coil sound really does not do it for me. I do think this guitar is best when used in humbucker mode only, because that thick meaty sound is what the Epiphone humbucking pickups are meant for. I want to also mention that the cherry color is very classy looking-- the color is dark, but transparent enough to see the wood grain underneath. As for the service from Sweetwater, it was excellent as usual. The guitar came double-boxed and it was ready to play straight out of the box. I didn't have to adjust the action. I literally took it out and plugged it into my amp. After my initial test runs, all I did after that was change the strings out to my favorite flatwounds and I'm happy as can be. Thank you Dennis at Sweetwater!
