Gibson Memphis 2018 ES-339, Antique Walnut
Gibson Memphis 2018 ES-339 Product Overview by GAK
First introduced back in 2007, the Gibson ES-339 gives you legendary Gibson tone in a smaller body size than it's popular sibling the ES-335.
The guitar features a three-ply maple/poplar/maple top and back combined with a solid maple centre block. The neck made up of beautiful mahogany and it features a rosewood fingerboard.
The onboard electrics are particularly impressive, with a pair of Memphis Historic Spec humbucker pickups on the unit.
Other key features include an ABR-1 bridge with titanium saddles, the MTC Plus handwired control assembly as well as Grover "milk bottle" Rotomatic tuners.
Gibson Product Overview
Despite its smaller body dimensions, the ES-339 does not look like an awkward dwarf version of a 335. The craftsmen at Gibson managed to shave several inches off the traditional semi-hollowbody design while retaining perfect proportions that look classy and natural. You may not even notice the difference until you pick up the ES-339 and instantly realise how much lighter and more comfortable it feels.
