Epiphone ES-339 PRO, Vintage Sunburst
The Epiphone ES-339 PRO has its roots in the classic era of semi-acoustics - the era that defined the Epiphone and Gibson Kalamazoo factory as a leader in cutting edge instruments. Today, the Epiphone ES-339 turns back the clock to this golden era, while simultaneously rocketing the semi-acoustic into the future.
Original introduced in the late '50s, ES series guitars were instant classics. They brought that archtop feel to players who had wholly recently embraced the solid-body. The first in the ES series was the ES-335, an amazing guitar no doubt, but one many players have always felt was a little too big.
Based around a size that's more like a Les Paul, the ES-339 is the a perfect for you if you're one of these players.
With its reduced size laminated Maple body with solid centre block, SlimTaper "D" profile 24.75" Mahogany, hand-set and glued neck, 22 jumbo frets with a 1-11/16" nut and 12" radius rosewood 'board, the ES-339 is a great combination of classic and modern. With single ply cream binding on the fingerboard and body completing the classic look.
The Epiphone ES-339 pickups give you a huge variety of sound choices for the modern guitarist. The Alnico Classic PRO and Alnico Classic PRO Plus humbucker pickups are designed to make a variety of tones and the push/pull coil tapping adds a extra layer of versatility.
The classic Epiphone hardware you've come to know and trust makes the ES-339 a must-have guitar. Featuring Epiphone's LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and LockTone Stopbar tailpiece, the ES-339 sports all nickel hardware along with Grover Deluxe 14:1 ratio Vintage machine heads with Tombstone buttons.
The ES-339 is for you if you're looking for a versatile, professional instrument that's capable of crunch, rock, jazz, country, and stinging blues.

GAK are a great store to use for musical instruments and everything connected with them, they are very helpful and polite. The only reason for three stars is down to the instrument itself a very good looking instrument but badly let down by the tone and volume controls plus three way toggle switch they all feel very cheap the volume and tone controls have no resistance and alter when playing plus toggle switch is next to useless and very flimsy plus every time you use it you can hear it going through the amp.Athough this guitar is fairly cheap I would have thought the controls would be up to scratch.

Excellent semi acoustic guitar for around £400 nice low action & intonation was spot on . Being smaller less sound of course if not plugged into amp than 335 style.
Very good sound, excellent value for money the tone knobs are not fantastic though, to be honest
Beautiful instrument. Lovely tone, good mid price option if you're looking for a hollow body.
Unbelievable value for money, so much guitar for just over £300
