The Epiphone ES-339 PRO is a classic ES-style archtop similar in shape to the ES-335 or Casino but with a reduced body size. The Epiphone ES-339 PRO features an ES-style laminated Maple body with a solid center block in a reduced size making it lighter and easier for travel.
The Mahogany neck is glued to the body with a traditional Mortise and Tenon neck joint and has an easy-to-play SlimTaper™ ‘D’ profile. The Pau Ferro fingerboard has ‘mother-of-pearl’ style Dot inlays, 22 medium jumbo frets, and a 12” radius. Both the body and fingerboard have single-ply cream binding.
The ES-339 PRO is powered by Alnico Classic PRO™ humbuckers made with Alnico-V magnets, which produce a slightly higher output in the mid and high ranges. Each pickup has it own Volume and Tone control with full-size 500K Ω potentiometers matched with Epiphone’s rugged, all-metal, 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-lasting performance.
Each pickup also is wired for coil-tapping. By pulling up the pickup’s volume knob, the humbucker will become a “single-coil” pickup, allowing players an infinite variety of tones from single-coil bark to full humbucker bite.The ES-339 PRO comes with Epiphone’s legendary LockTone™ bridge and Stopbar tailpiece for incredible sustain and superb intonation along with Wilkinson™ Vintage machine heads with Tombstone buttons and a 14:1 tuning ratio and nickel hardware.
