Embrace the Semi-hollowbody Vibe

Epiphone's ES-339 Pro semi-hollowbody electric guitar has roots in the classic era of rock 'n' roll and 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
  • Powerful electronics
  • Quality hardware
Elegant construction

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 a SlimTaper "D" profile shape for a faster, modern feel. And the rosewood fingerboard has a 12" radius, which is great for both lead and rhythm playing.

Powerful electronics

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!

Quality hardware

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

Epiphone ES-339 Pro Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A modern version of a classic guitar with an iconic sound
  • Semi-hollowbody design with a reduced body size for comfortable playing
  • Alnico Classic Pro humbucking pickups are versatile enough to offer up both classic and modern tones

All the reviews are true

Dennis Konicki sent me my Epiphone ES339 and case. I couldn't be more impressed. A buddy played it last week and I'm pretty sure he'll be ordering one very soon. All the reviews stressed the tremendous "bang for the buck" and they were right. I have four guitars and tend to pick this one up most often. Great fit and finish and variety of tones. I use a Roland Blues Cube Stage with this guitar. Very fun to play.

So Much Guitar, So Little Cost

In a word, "WOW"! I am amazed at the quality of my Epi ES-339 Pro. I thought long and hard before ordering it, mainly because of where these are made. I have owned several USA Gibsons over the years (two ES-335s, four Les Pauls), so I'm familiar with Gibson and truly love the Gibson sound. However, I really can't justify spending the money Gibson wants for the models I prefer (and money is not really an issue for me). So I researched the ES-339 extensively and was impressed by the overwhelming positive reviews this guitar (as well as other Epi models being made today) received. I watched a ton of YouTube product reviews as well. In the end I decided to take a chance and order one. I'm glad I did.The only things I had to do was lower the action for my likes, adjust the pickup height a smidge for better balance between the neck and bridge pickups, put on my preferred strings, replace the strap buttons with Strap Loks and replace the control knobs with Speed Knobs. Sounds like a lot, but all of these tweaks reflect personal preferences. Fit and finish are flawless. Vedry solid guitar and extremely stable. It stays in tune. As far as the action, I simply lowered the bridge. I expected I would have to tweak the truss rod and mess with intonation adjustments (things I always had to do with EVERY USA Gibson I've bought new). The neck couldn't have been more perfect. No adjustment needed. The fretwork was spot on. I love these Classic Pro pickups. I generally do not like the stock pickups on USA Gibsons and ALWAYS replaced them with DiMarzios. I really wasn't expecting much from these Epi PUPS, but wow. They sound great and are perfect on this guitar (I played this through a Fender Twin). Very articulate, clear, warm and crisp at the same time. I like what I'm hearing. A lot. And the coil spit is subtle but usable, and will work great for a couple of countryish songs I do, where I don't need all the meat of the full humbuckers. I do mainly blues so I think I found the perfect blues guitar.If you're on the fence about buying because of the "China" thing, do yourself a favor and give it a try (heck, you can always return it). The Epiphone ES-339 will surprise you.

Epi ES339 Pro

I've played guitar for 28+ yrs. and have owned most of the good stuff. I just received the Epi ES 339 Pro from Sweetwater and I'm blown away by the quality of workmanship, the tone and the Pickups! If you blindfolded me and I played this guitar I would swear I was playing a Gibson ES339, except the Gibson doesn't have coil splitting and costs $2100.00 MORE. Great job Epiphone & Sweetwater.Thanks Dennis K.

A Very Satisfied Customer

This appears to be a very solid, well-made instrument. It arrived right on time and was well-packaged. I purchased from Sweetwater because the reviews were more favorable, and their 55-point inpection sounded like a good idea. From reading other reviews, it seems these guitars are shipped from the factory in bad need of professional set-up. Mine was quite playable on arrival, and everything worked perfectly. I have owned and played many fine instruments over the years, and this one compares favorably. On a sour note: It seems the factory does not properly "age" the materials before construction, resulting in recurring tuning and intonation problems, at least over the first few weeks. My advice: put on good strings (EB-10/46 Nickel), get a good electronic tuner, download some basic set-up instructions and play it daily.
