IF YOU SEE THIS, IT IS AVAILABLE!


Beautiful Pelham Blue ES-339 Pro with perfect Epiphone 940-E339 hardshell case. Guitar upgrades: locking Gotoh tuners, TUSQ XL nut, Gotoh Tune-a-matic bridge. The nut was dressed & the bridge installed by a luthier. Guitar has never been gigged and is perfect: no dings, dents or scratches that I can see. Case has never been out of the closet except for the visit to my luthier. Note that I removed the pickguard; it’s of course included, as well as the original tuners, nut and bridge. Also note that this is the Pro model with coil tapping; the current ES-339 lacks that feature.


Guitar is set up very nicely with low action (3/64” on the high E at the 12th fret, slightly higher on the low E) and is perfectly intonated. I have noticed very rarely, when switching pickups, I have to work the switch back and forth to get the sound to come out. The selector switch might need cleaned or replaced, not really sure, it never bothered me enough to fix it. This is a great guitar that just doesn’t get a lot of play (I own too many guitars, so I’ve decided to let a few go, and this is one of them). Case candy in the original bag is included, of course.
