Sonik Stach's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Rock, simple but cheap"

Gibson ES-339 Studio
For specifications, see the news.
Report a quick test performed at Musikmesse with Audiofanzine (https://fr.audiofanzine.com/membres/a.musikmesse.html)
The brand slogan for this model is "Trimmed down, Stripped down", it is indeed a no-frills version deliberately simplified the small hollow body ES 339 (smaller than 335 body)
The finish is good but the paint just seemed really thick, it "traps" the resonances.
Mechanical problem with (see below)

UTILIZATION

Ergonomics is the classic Gibson, a relatively thick neck, short scale, a heel a little too prominent for easy access to the last fret, but it's not a guitar Shredder! The reduced body size is comfortable and lightweight.
Microphone, volume, tone (too?) On branch we play!
A simple guitar Punk mind but still with a tune O matic bridge which provides good intonation regardless pulling strings used, unlike the cast of Melody Maker wraparound. But mechanical, vintage style Kluson are really the black point of the guitar, at least in the tested model: imprecise, unstable, the guitar is out of tune constantly.

SOUNDS

One micro = one sound?
This is somewhat true with this guitar, the sound is clear and very sour is saturated draft, on the other hand crunch is juicy, this was right after riffer like punk, garage, stoner .. . too aggressive for blues on the other hand.

OVERALL OPINION

A guitar for a very targeted audience, and focused. A cut above the Melody Maker. Too bad the next "stripped down" becomes cheap in mechanical and varnish.
