The Epiphone ES-339 PRO is Here!: Epiphone introduces the much anticipated ES-339 PRO - a NEW instrument with it's roots planted firmly in the classic era that helped define the Epiphone and Gibson Kalamazoo factory as a leader in cutting edge instruments. Today, this new semi-hollowbody from Epiphone turns back the clock while simultaneously rocketing the player-favorite into the future.

The Birth of a Legend: Introduced in the late '50s, the ES series became an instant classic by bringing the feel of an archtop to players who had wholly embraced solid body classics like the Les Paul. The first in the ES series, the ES-335 became an instant success but for many players, it's body was slightly too big. The new ES-339 PRO is the perfect remedy, featuring body dimensions that are smaller while still retaining the bell-like tones of all ES series guitars as well as the classic shape.

Classic Construction: The Epiphone ES-339 PRO features a reduced size laminated Maple body with a solid center block. The SlimTaper™ "D" profile 24.75" Mahogany neck has 22 jumbo frets with a 1-11/16" nut and is hand-set and glued with a Mortise and Tenon neck joint with Titebond™ Glue. The 12" radius neck also features a Rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl inlays, much like the original. Single ply cream binding on the fingerboard and body completes the classic look and looks superb on all the ES-339 PRO's finishes which include Cherry, Ebony, Natural, and Vintage Sunburst.

Epiphone Barrier Breaking Electronics: The new Epiphone ES-339 PRO pickups are set up to provide a huge variety of sound choices for the modern guitarist. For those who are used to carrying two guitars to gigs, the ES-339 PRO will solve that problem once and for all. Now, you can play any gig and any style with just one guitar--the Epiphone ES-339 PRO. The ES-339 PRO's fabulous Alnico Classic PRO™ humbucker pickups can make an infinite variety of tones thanks to the 3-way Pickup Selector which features a push/pull coil tap. The neck pickup volume pot and the bridge pickup volume pot each feature an easy-touch push/pull coil tap, making it easy to switch back and forth between single coil or classic humbucker sounds. The all-metal heavy duty Epiphone 1/4" output jack gives you a lifetime of worry-free use.

Epiphone Hardware You Can Trust: The classic Epiphone hardware you've come to know and trust makes the ES-339 PRO a must-have guitar. Featuring Epiphone's LockTone™ Tune-o-matic bridge and LockTone™ Stopbar tailpiece, the ES-339 PRO sports all nickel hardware along with Grover™ 14:1 ratio Vintage machine heads with Tombstone buttons.

Epiphone Guarantee: Like every Epiphone, the ES-339 PRO features our Limited Lifetime warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 day Gibson Customer Service. If you want a versatile, professional instrument designed for live performance or studio and capable of crunch, rock, jazz, country, and stinging blues, come back home to the Epiphone ES-339 PRO!

Get The ULTRA Experience!

The Ultra-339 - Where Tradition Meets Technology: For guitarists seeking the power of Epiphone's Ultra-III electronics in an "ES" style guitar, Epiphone is proud to offer the new Ultra-339 guitar. Featuring the legendary "ES" semi-hollow body construction in a reduced-sized version, the new Ultra-339 will take your performance and comfort to the next Ultra-level!

Great Tone Woods and Hardware: While the Ultra-339 is packed with cutting edge technology, it still maintains the same basic specifications that made Epiphone semi-hollow guitars the choice of so many guitarists. The Ultra 339 features a laminated Maple body with solid center block, a glued-in Mahogany neck with classic Mortise and Tenon neck joint, and a comfortable SlimTaper™ neck profile and Rosewood fingerboard. The result is a modern guitar with that classic semi-hollow tone and sustain.

Two Great Pickup Systems in One Guitar: At the heart of the new Ultra-339 are two pickup systems. Powering the first are Epiphone's new ProBucker™ Humbucking pickups patterned after Gibson's famous BurstBuckers™. With authentic 18% nickel silver base and cover, Elektrisola wire, accurate bobbins, slugs and screws and sand casted Alnico-II magnets, these pickups replicate that classic "Patent Applied For" airy tone that defined rock and roll. The second system features Shadow™ Germany's patented NanoMag™ pickup embedded discretely at the end of the fingerboard. Featuring three samarium cobalt magnets, an air coil, and active electronics, this low-impedance pickup captures subtle body acoustics and string harmonics. Together, you get powerful Humbucker-driven rock crunch as well as shimmering acoustic-like tones and everything in-between.

One-Of-A-Kind Electronics Built-in: If you thought the Ultra III was jam-packed with modern features, you won't believe what Epiphone has designed into the Ultra-339. Built discretely into the bridge pickup mounting ring is a full-function, chromatic tuner. Push it's ON/OFF button and sound is immediately muted when the tuner activated. Eleven color-coded LED's identify the note as well as whether it's sharp, flat or in-tune. To allow quick and seamless changes between each pickup system, the Ultra-III's NanoMag Volume knob now doubles as an A/B switch. Just push it in and quickly toggle between Magnetic, NanoMag or both pickup systems with no delay and no "pop." Two additional LED's on the pickup mounting ring provide a visual indicator of which pickup system is active (Red=NanoMag; Blue-Magnetic or Red/Blue=Both).

Hook-Up Directly To Your Computer: The Ultra-339 features three different outputs. By using the standard 1/4" MONO output, both the Humbuckers and NanoMag are mixed into one signal. When you plug another 1/4" cable into the Ultra-339's STEREO output, the Humbuckers are routed through one cable and the NanaMag the other. In this way, you can send the Humbuckers to your favorite guitar amp and the NanoMag™ to the PA or an acoustic guitar amp. Using the A/B switch, you can now change "on-the-fly" between the two outputs. The third output is USB. Using a USB cable (included), you can plug directly into your computer and use guitar applications such as Native Instruments GuitarRig™ 4LE (download) to play your guitar through a variety of simulated amplifiers and effects and listen through your computer speakers or headphones. GuitarRig™ also features a recorder, a metronome, a tuner and more.

Classic Epiphone Hardware: Like most Epiphone's, it's also equipped with Epi's patent-applied-for LockTone™ locking tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece for increased sustain and string changing ease as well as quality Grover™ 14:1 machine heads for tuning accuracy and stability.

Limited Lifetime Warranty: Like every Epiphone, the Ultra 339 features their Limited Lifetime warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 day Gibson Customer Service. If you want a versatile professional instrument designed for live performance or studio and capable of both semi-hollow growl and real acoustic-like tones, the Epiphone Ultra-339 is it!
