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. This approach was enhanced in the ES335, using a thinner, F-hole body with a Maple center block. The neck is Mahogany, with Indian Rosewood for the fingerboard.

At the time this Gibson ES339 Thinline was built, Kluson Deluxe style tuners with plastic keystone buttons were used, paired with a nickel-plated Tone Pros ABR style bridge and stop tailpiece set. A set of 57 Classic humbuckers run through individual volume and tone controls and a standard 3-way switch, to an output jack on the side.

Like its larger sibling, the Gibson ES339 Thinline is a great sounding, great playing and very versatile guitar. Its smaller size makes it easier to fit into a stage, studio or bandstand, but does not sacrifice tone or playability.

This example is in great condition with very little wear of any kind. There are some light marks on the pickguard from fingers brushing over it and that’s about it.

The original Gibson Custom hard shell case is included, and it contains all the Case Candy, tags and Certificate of Authenticity.
