Introducing the Epiphone ES-339 PRO
Epiphone introduces the ES-339 PRO a new instrument with roots firmly planted in the classic era when Epiphones Kalamazoo factory was producing rocks most legendary instruments. Featuring a reduced size ES-style body with 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. But for many players who were used to smaller solid body guitars, the ES-335 felt too bulky to play on 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.

If you want a versatile, professional instrument designed for live performance or studio and capable of crunch, rock, jazz, country and stinging blues, come home to the Epiphone ES-339 PRO!

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreLondon North, Ontario
Let me preface this by saying, I hate epiphone guitars. I have owned and played quite a few in my 23 yrs of playing, and find the necks terrible and uncomfortable, the pickups are garbage, and the QC sub par. That being said, I am actually floored by these es 339 and 335 pro guitars. The neck is fantastic, feels like a prs wide fat to me. The neck pup sounds as good as guitars costing way more, its a copy of a classic 57 and sounds fantastic. The bridge pup is more like what I expect from an epi. The coil taps make this guitar very versatile and it is a ton of fun, right out of the box. This is the first epi I've bought that I'm actually considering leaving the stock neck pup in, it sounds great. Downsides are the cheap kluson type tuners, glue bits around the neck inlays which look a little sloppy, no binding on the headstock, which is just a preference but the Sheraton looks way nicer with its ornate headstock. This guitar sounds better than a Sheraton by far imo. All in all, I'll def replace the bridge pup, put locking tuners on it, but for $430 it is the most es335/9 type guitar you will find.
