Tradition and Innovation in a Versatile Thinline Electric

New from Gibson Memphis, the ES-390 brings together elements of both traditional and innovative Gibson archtop-electric design. With the compact and supremely comfortable body size of the iconic semi-hollow ES-339, but the fully hollow “thinline” body of a legendary guitar like the ES-330, the ES-390 has the versatility to tackle any kind of music. And, of course, it plays superbly as only a genuine Gibson guitar can.

In the tradition of the groundbreaking ES-335, the new ES-390 is constructed of laminated maple with a hot-pressed arched top and back, but rather than concealing the ES-335’s center block it is fully hollow inside, achieving the woody warmth and resonance of an acoustic archtop guitar, in an ultra-comfortable package. Two of Gibson’s Mini-Humbucking pickups translate all that tone to everything from rich and bluesy to shimmering and twangy. A classic set of high-quality hardware and appointments anchor it all down beautifully. To top it all off, the ES-390 looks both classic and contemporary in your choice of Red or Ebony finish, or in a highly figured maple finished in a classic Vintage Sunburst or rich warm looking Vintage Cherry. Both in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, trimmed with cream top, back, and fingerboard binding, with a traditional five-ply black pickguard. Check it out now at your authorized Gibson Memphis dealer.

The ES-390 is a more compact version of the original 330s of the mid sixties with a fully hollow body made from laminated maple with traditional f-holes. The result is a dynamic blend of the traditional archtop’s looks and sonic depth with markedly improved overall playing comfort. The neck is crafted from solid mahogany, and topped with a bound fingerboard made from hand-selected dark rosewood, inlaid with simple mother of pearl block markers.

A pair of Gibson’s popular Mini-Humbucking pickups provide optimum sonic versatility for the ES-390. Made with genuine Alnico II magnets and wound with 42 AWG wire like the original full-sized PAF humbuckers, the Mini-Humbuckers offer a similar sonic signature and excellent hum rejection, with a brighter overall character and improved clarity to help you cut through the mix. They are routed through the traditional complement of two independent volume and two independent tone controls, and a three-way Switchcraft toggle selector.

The ES-390 carries Gibson’s legendary Tune-o-matic bridge and trapeze tailpiece tailpiece, with high-quality TonePros tuners with butterscotch keystone buttons, all plated in nickel for a classic look. The controls have black Top-Hat knobs with silver inserts, and the guitar has a traditional bell truss-rod cover and five-ply b/w/b/w/b pickguard.

The Gibson ES-390 comes protected in silkscreened Gibson case, and includes a Certificate of Authenticity, owner’s manual, and coverage by Gibson’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 customer service.
