As a lover of semi-hollow and hollow body guitars, I've long been a fan of the ES-339 series. My first was an Epiphone ES-339 Pro P90 in Cherry red. It was a great guitar in every respect, except I'm not a big fan of Gibson's bright Cherry Red. I do love Gibson's Wine Red, however, and have one of those: an ES-339 Studio. Anyway, sometime last year I sold the Epi ES-339 to acquire another guitar that I liked better. Thing is, I have wanted to replace it with another ES-339 that I would appreciate the finish on better. The other night, while surfing Reverb (DANGEROUS!), I spotted a winner. 2013 ES-339 Pro in Natural finish. I searched Guitar Center, Musicians Friend, Sweetwater, Sam Ash, eBay, and Reverb and could only find two of these guitars in the Natural finish - both used. I do have more guitars than I need, but have wanted one in Natural finish for a long time. Wish fulfilled. Seller was asking $395. I offered him a magic number: $339. He accepted. Deal was struck. It arrived today. I was very pleased to find that the guitar is in almost immaculate condition. With perfect set-up. I had planned, when buying it, to install a set of TV Jones Classic pickups that I happen to have sitting idle. (TVJ's version of Filter'trons.) However, on playing this guitar, which has AlNiCo Classic Pro humbucker pickups and the split-coil/single-coil feature, I was amazed at how wonderful the tone is - especially in the single-coil mode! Blown-away, actually. The tone is so good (even for the Tele-lover that I am) that now I'm seriously considering leaving the guitar just as is - kind of unusual, for me. Anyway... this is the guitar, as it arrived. As it turns out, there really were a couple of things that I simply had to change - the black knobs and black switch tip. DONE: I really AM done buying guitars now!
