A Pair of '57 Classic Humbucking Pickups

This guitar comes equipped with a pair of Gibson?s acclaimed '57 Classic humbucking pickups, which accurately replicate the sound of the legendary PAF humbuckers of the late ?50s, with performance updates for today?s player. The 57 Classic pickup in the neck position provides a range of great voices, from mellow jazz work with amazing depth and definition, to a singing blues-lead voice with plenty of crispness and cut. The 57 Classic in the bridge gives you everything from biting twang to wailing, cutting rock tones with a little overdrive applied. Gibson?s Nashville Tone Circuit maintains highs as you roll back the volume controls. The guitar has a Switchcraft selector and output jack translate the signal in pure vintage style.

Quality Constuction

The top, back and sides of this ES-339 are crafted with the same pressed-arch, laminated-maple with solid maple centerblock construction, which is what Gibson used to produce the first ES-335s, but this guitar is made to more compact dimensions closer to those of Gibson?s solidbody electric guitars. This guitar boasts an Antique Red finish.

The ES-339 features the classic pairing of a Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece. This provides solid anchoring and point-perfect adjustment at the body end. The guitar also has green-button Kluson-style tuners and a PLEK-cut Corian nut. The neck is carved from a single piece of quarter-sawn mahogany and topped with a rosewood fingerboard. The design incorporates Gibson?s lauded 17-degree back-angled headstock, which contributes greatly to the ES-339's resonance and sustain.

Hardshell Case Included

This guitar comes with a black Gibson hardshell case.
