The New Semi-Hollowbody from Epiphone ES-339 PRO
Epiphone introduces the ES-339 PRO – a new instrument with roots firmly planted in the classic era when Epiphone’s Kalamazoo factory was producing some of rock’s most legendary instruments. Featuring a reduced size ES-style body with classic Alnico Classic PRO™ humbucker pickups, the new ES-339 PRO semi-hollowbody from Epiphone turns back the clock while breaking new ground in sound and style.
The Birth of a Legend
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. Over the years, many players have requested a smaller ES-style guitar for the stage. The new ES-339 PRO is the perfect remedy, featuring smaller body dimensions while still retaining the bell-like tone the ES series is famous for.
The Epiphone ES-339 PRO features a reduced size laminated maple body with a solid center block, much like original ES-style classics. The mahogany SlimTaper ™ "D" profile 24.75" scale neck has 22 medium jumbo frets and is hand-set and glued with a mortise and tenon neck joint with Titebond ™ glue. The 12" radius neck features a rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl inlays and a 1.68" nut. Single-ply cream binding on the fingerboard and body completes the classic look. The ES-339 PRO comes in four superb color finishes: Cherry, Ebony, Natural and Vintage Sunburst.
Epiphone Barrier Breaking Electronics
The new Epiphone ES-339 PRO’s Alnico Classic PRO™ humbucker pickups provide a huge variety of sound choices for the modern guitarist. For those who are used to carrying two guitars to gigs, the ES-339 PRO will solve that problem once and for all. Now, you can play any gig and any style with just one guitar – the Epiphone ES-339 PRO.
The ES-339 PRO features an Alnico Classic PRO™ humbucker in the neck position and the bridge position providing an infinite variety of tones thanks to the 3-way pickup selector which also features a push/pull coil tap.
The neck pickup volume pot and the bridge pickup volume pot each feature an easy-touch push/pull coil tap, making for a smooth transition back and forth between single coil and classic humbucker sounds. The all-metal heavy duty Epiphone 1/4" output jack gives you a lifetime of worry-free use.
