Epiphone’s new ES™ Collection is comprised of classic 'Inspired by Gibson' ES-style semi-hollowbody archtop guitars, available in regular ES-335 size, as well as in the slightly smaller and lighter ES-339 body size.
All ES models in the Collection feature Maple centre blocks for increased sustain and feedback resistance, plus a comfortable Rounded C profile Mahogany neck with Medium Jumbo frets, Alnico Classic PRO™ humbuckers™, and Epiphone LockTone™ Tune-O-Matic™ bridges, making them ready for every stage.
The Epiphone ‘Inspired By Gibson’ ES-335 is based on the iconic 1958 Gibson design, the large body, semi-hollow electric that has since become instantly recognisable. The body is constructed using a layered maple top, back and sides, along with a central solid maple tone block. The mahogany neck has a rounded C profile and it sports the new Kalamazoo headstock shape.
It comes loaded with a set of Epiphone Alnico Classic PRO Humbuckers, with dual volume and tone controls, and a pickup selector switch located below the bridge. The hardware is Epiphone branded, and it uses CTS pots. You can get the guitar in a Cherry or Vintage Sunburst finish, or, if you opt for one with a figured maple top, a Blueberry Burst or Raspberry Tea Burst finish.
The ‘Inspired By Gibson’ ES-339 is a smaller version of the ES-335 above, with an almost identical configuration as its sibling. The ES-339 has the same pickup configuration as the ES-335, as well as the same control layout. The ES-339 is designed for those seeking the tone and look of the ES-335, but in a smaller, lighter instrument
The 'Inspired By Gibson' ES-339 is available in Cherry, Pelham Blue, Vintage Sunburst and Natural finishes.
