ES-339

Gibson Memphis ES-339 Thinline Electric Cherry Red, 2013

Gibson Memphis ES-339 Thinline Electric Cherry Red, 2013

The Gibson Memphis ES-339 was built from 2007 until the Gibson Memphis plant closed in 2019, and the 339 is now built in Nashville with some small changes. In 1996, Gibson launched the short-lived ES-336, a scaled-down version of the classic ES-335. This model retained the key playability elements of the 335 in terms of scale length, fingerboard width and hardware selection.

This very clean Gibson ES339 Thinline Archtop Electric in Antique Vintage Sunburst was built during 2011 at the now-closed Memphis plant. Based on the successful ES-335, the ES-339 scales down the body width and length while maintaining the scale length and neck width. The result is a very comfortable and extremely versatile guitar with classic looks. Construction of the Gibson ES339 Thinline Archtop Electric follows the pattern of Gibson’s ES models and how that was adapted to the ground-breaking 1958 ES-335. From the late 1940’s, Gibson started using Maple Laminates for the top, back and sides of their electrified archtops in an effort to reduce both feedback and costs.

The Gibson ES-339 Thinline Archtop has everything the classic and very successful ES-335 offers, but with a comfortable, slightly scaled down body. Originating during 2007 from the Gibson Memphis Custom Shop, the ES-339 found immediate acceptance. The Gibson Memphis plant has now closed due to restructuring, so any future models will likely come from Nashville.

The Gibson ES-339 was a hit from its introduction in 2007 using the concept and classic lines of the ES-335, but with a scaled down body. All of the other features line up between the two models – the scale lengths, neck sizes and hardware are the same. The build quality is identical, with Maple laminates for the body, Mahogany for the neck and a Rosewood fingerboard. The headstock logos and position markers are Mother of Pearl.

This is an excellent condition Gibson ES-339, this one in traditional Cherry Red and built during 2010 at the Nashville Custom Shop!  The original hard shell case and Certificate of Authenticity are included. The serial number here specifies that this ES-339 was built at Gibson Memphis Custom Shop in 2010. As a note about the serial numbering – Custom Shop serials don’t follow the rest of the company’s model. At this point the serial used CS plus six digits. The first digit is the year, starting in 2010, and the second digit is the location, with 5 being Memphis and 0 being Nashville.

The Gibson ES-339 uses a smaller 335 style body that was a hit from its introduction in 1996 as the ES-336. It gives all the tonal richness and versatility of the full-size ES-335, but in a more compact package. This ES-339 was built at Gibson Memphis Custom Shop in 2011. As a note about the serial numbering – Custom Shop serials don’t follow the rest of the company’s model. At this point the serial used CS plus six digits. The first digit is the year, starting in 2010, and the second digit is the location, with 5 being Memphis. So, this is a 2011 model from Memphis.
