Epiphone introduces the ES-339 PRO – a new instrument with roots firmly planted in the classic era when Epiphone’s Kalamazoo factory was producing rock’s 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.

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.

The Epiphone ES-339 PRO features a reduced size laminated maple body with a solid center block, much like original ES-style classics. The mahogany SlimTaper “D” profile 24.75” scale neck has 22 medium jumbo frets and is hand-set and glued with a mortise and tenon neck joint with Titebond glue. The 12” radius neck features a rosewood fingerboard with pearloid inlays and a 1.68” nut. Single-ply cream binding on the fingerboard and body completes the classic look.

The new Epiphone ES-339 PRO’s Alnico Classic PRO humbucker pickups provide a huge variety of sound choices for the modern guitarist. For those who are used to carrying two guitars to gigs, the ES-339 PRO will solve that problem once and for all. Now, you can play any gig and any style with just one guitar – the Epiphone ES-339 PRO. The ES-339 PRO features Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers in both the neck position and bridge position providing an infinite variety of tones thanks to the 3-way pickup selector which also features a push/pull coil tap. The neck pickup volume pot and the bridge pickup volume pot each feature an easy-touch push/pull coil tap, making for smooth transitions back and forth between single coil and classic humbucker sounds. The all-metal heavy duty Epiphone 1/4” output jack gives you a lifetime of worry-free use.

The ES-339 PRO features rock-solid hardware including Epiphone’s LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and LockTone Stopbar tailpiece. The ES-339 PRO has all nickel hardware along with Grover 14:1 ratio vintage style machine heads with tombstone buttons. Case not included.

Great service and product


Very fast shipping. Great product. Love the guitar. I will buy from Sam Ash again.



What a great buy!


This guitar is an amazing value! I've never owned a semi hollow and with 11 other guitars I just wasn't willing to drop 2 to 3 grand on the Gibson version. Out the box there was an issue with the D string tuner. Epiphone had a replacement in my mailbox within a few days. The fit and finish on this guitar is flawless. It has by far exceeded my expectations. The only upgrades that I've made since I purchased the 339 was to upgrade the tuners to the Kluson Revolution locking tuners and a Tusq XL replacement nut. With a full set up and intonation this guitar is a gem. Plugged into an original 65 Vibrolux there's tone for days with the split coil pickups. Go on and git cha one!



Great guitar, better service!


The Epiphone 339 Pro is the perfect size for me, has great tone out of the box, and the cherry finish is gorgeous. I usually stick with humbuckers, but I appreciate the flexibility of coil-splitting. I paired it with a Boss Katana 50 mk2 that I had previously picked up from Sam Ash. Sam Ash shipped quickly and the guitar was brand new in its factory packaging. Unfortunately, there were some issues with the pickup selector electronics, but a Samash rep was able to talk me through various options and ultimately set up a return.



Great guitar


I played Acoustics for 40 years until Arthritis made me quit. I missed playing so bad I bought this hoping the action would be a lot lighter and I could play again. This is one great guitar. Easy to play, and with a versatile amp can almost duplicxate an acoustic. Its well made, a pleasure to play . Its a great value for someone looking to move up to a better quality guitar, or a beginner wanting an easy playing guitar. I highly recommend the ES-339 PRO and would but it again. Now, if it only came in a 12 string.......



Great purchase! My new #1.


I play every weekend at church, through an Ernie Ball Volume, Line 6 M13 and Atomic Ampli Firebox, straight to the PA. At home, through M13 to Blues Jr or Super Champ. Great all around guitar. Stays in tune and has coil splits, unlike Gibsons. Lighter than my Strats, Teles, Hagstroms, or Supros. Smaller body than a Gretsch or E335, which I like since I'm short. Set-up was great out of the box. I prefer blues, but have to cover all guitar sounds for worship (single coils, hbs, clean, dirty, atmospheric) and this covers them all.

Sunburst is beautiful


Mine needed adjustments, the strings touched the rear of the bridge which would not let it intonate. I raised the stop tail up about 1/16 or so and that solved the intonation and tuning issues. I love playing it, the pickups are hot and can growl if you want. I also had to file the fret ends , but i expected that. I have been playing for 35 years and i am keeping this guitar.


So. Cal


love this guitar


i bought this about a week ago and haven't stopped playing it i play it more than my les paul and strat this has a very good sound to it and good action and its not very heavy i like that is just a little smaller than a 339 i tried a Gibson and this Epiphone and for the difference in money the Epiphone was very well worth it

Killer Guitar With Killer Tones


Great guitar for all levels. The PRO Buckers that come stock with these are really great. They bring out the mid range a of the smaller body that the 339 are known for. 339 also is super light compared to a les paul. Push Pull pots Let you get the single coil tone with out the 60 cycle hum. besides that, this guitar is just plain great. feels good and plays even better

Can become a great piece with some work


I've been playing for over 30 years and this is the 1st semi-hollow I've owned. Overall this is a very impressive guitar, independent of the price. As the other reviewer noted, the 339 needed the frets dressed before the intonation could be properly completed; I like the action low. From 6th on up lots of fret buzz intially. The luthier package I purchased with the 339 took care of this issue. Also the neck needed a slight adjustment. I mainly use this thru an AC15, and I do get a LOT of mid-range. Both top and bottom end are rounded off so the tone is similar to a softer/warmer LP. Coil tapping is cool, but I was surprised at how much I had to increase the volume to get just past an acoustic voicing. Overall a very nice piece!
