Gibson Custom ES-339. The Best of Both Worlds, For Today’s Demanding Player The ES-339 From Gibson Memphis Through the course of more than five decades and myriad shifting musical styles, the ES-335 has remained one of the most popular electric guitars of all time.

Its ingenious blend of hollowbody warmth and complexity and solidbody bite and sustain made it arguably the most versatile guitar available when Gibson introduced the model in 1958, and that design imperative hasn’t changed today. For some players more accustomed to the slimmer lines and more compact dimensions of a solidbody electric, though, the standard ES-335 can feel just a little large and unwieldy.

Gibson ES-339 from Gibson Custom Shop

In 1958, Gibson debuted a guitar that provided the perfect combination of solid body and hollowbody features—the ES-335. With a solid maple block running down the center of its thin, hollow body, the ES-335 provides the fat, resonant tone of a hollowbody guitar while delivering the sustain and feedback resistance of a solidbody. Gibson’s hybrid design, known as a semi-hollow or semi-acoustic guitar, remains a perennial favorite of players of nearly every style of music from jazz, blues and rock.

While the ES-335 is thin like a solidbody, its body width and length are similar to the large dimensions of an archtop guitar. As a result, many players accustomed to solidbody instruments often find the ES-335’s size and weight somewhat unwieldy. Despite its smaller body dimensions, the ES-339 does not look like an awkward smaller version of a 335. The Gibson Custom Shop have created another winner.
