Guitar World has published a new supplement on that lists what they believe are the "Greatest Budget Axes" under $500. Included in the group of 15 guitars is the Epiphone ES-339 PRO. Guitar World states, "Epiphone's ES-339 PRO offers a handy upgrade--push-pull coil-splitting on a pair of Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers--making it an even more versatile guitar than its much costlier Gibson counterpart."
