    Comments about Gibson 2016 ES-339 Satin Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

    While the ES-335 is iconic and beloved, it was and is a very large instrument with that massive lower bout. Anyone under 6 ft tall often looks as if he is hugging or wrestling with a 335 due to its occasionally unwieldy dimensions. The ES-339 gets, let's say, 90% of that classic sound while offering a much more manageable body size and offering many of its own unique tones.

    This particular Gibson division is doing it right - no discernible flaws or shortcomings re: finish, hardware, fret ends, binding, etc. It is a player right out of the box with intonation and action spot on. Although the finish is satin (matte) it still has a nice luster when light hits it. The binding is impressive - it's a slightly aged bone color.

    Tuners feature an 18:1 ratio thus they are very sensitive/precise. The bone nut is a nice touch. Volume and tone pots have a smooth 'power curve' without disappearing entirely around 3 or 4 on the dial.

    It isn't all Dreamland, however. The G string nut slot needed some work to eliminate that maddening bit of pinch-and-release many of us are familiar with during tuning. I have Burstbuckers in an SG and like them but the bridge pickup in the 339 was a bit lifeless/thin. I'm not much of a pickup swapper in guitars but it was problematic enough for me to replace it with a Duncan Antiquity which has worked beautifully in this guitar - the combination is wonderfully, musically resonant.

    Pickup tastes aside, this guitar really does offer tonal versatility without the need for science-project frippery like coil taps and push-pull pots. The aesthetics are top-drawer especially with the addition of the block inlays (I don't like dots). It is, quite simply, a player. And a looker.
