EPIPHONE ES339 NATURAL FINISH
This is the ES-339, a new instrument from Epiphone with roots firmly planted in the classic era when Epiphone’s Kalamazoo factory was producing rock’s most legendary instruments.
Featuring a perfectly proportioned scaled down ES-style thinline body with Alnico Classic PRO™ humbucker pickups, the new ES-339 semi-hollowbody from Epiphone turns back the clock while breaking new ground in sound and style.
EPIPHONE ES339 A Legend in the making…
First introduced in the late ’50s, the ES series became an instant rock classic, bringing the feel and look of an archtop to a generation of players who had grown up playing solid body guitars like the Les Paul. The ES-335, the first in the ES series, was an instant success however, for many players who were used to smaller solid body guitars, the ES-335 was simply too bulky to play on stage.
The new ES-339 is the perfect answer, featuring beautifully proportioned smaller body dimensions while still retaining the bell-like tone the ES series is famous for.
