Overview

The Gibson ES-390 is the perfect mix of the innovative, smaller body size of the ES-339, with the classic hollowbody of the legendary ES-330. This is a very light and versatile guitar, ideal whether you play jazz, blues or rock. Limited-Edition, so order yours before it goes!

Great semi-acoustic guitar with a comfortable, smaller and lightweight hollow body. Great for jazz, blues or rock, this versatile guitar is a true keeper - a joy to play, and capable of a wide range of tones. A modern semi-acoustic with a foot in Gibson's illustrious past.

The wood and construction of the ES-390 all contribute greatly to the tone, aiding this guitar’s exceptional sustain and depth, and yielding a resonance that can be felt right through the body. The sound waves resonate within the hollow airspace of the Maple veneered Body, around the F-holes, and throughout the solid glue joints.

The ES-390 from Gibson Memphis blends the characteristics of two favorite models—old and new—in a superbly playable guitar with entirely its own voice and vibe.

This ingenious redesign follows the form of the seminal ES-330, a fully hollow archtop electric with a thinline body depth like that of the semi-acoustic ES-335. But it’s different from either, the ES-390 takes the cleverly compacted dimensions of the popular ES-339, making it a more comfortable playing proposition for those used to having smaller-proportioned solid bodies in their hands.

It might be a size conceived in the 21st century, but the ES-390 hangs with the best of vintage Gibson semis for construction and components. The traditional ES body made from laminated maple top, back and sides is jointed to a glued-in neck made from quarter-sawn mahogany with a one-piece rosewood fingerboard sporting small-block inlays.

Newly redesigned MHS (Memphis Historic Spec) P-90 pickups, created from intensive examination of the finest original vintage units, nail those beloved hot, thick, raunchy tones with impressive sparkle and clarity. To cap a sweet build from the skilled luthiers at Gibson Memphis, the ES-390 is finished in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer in a luscious Dark Burst reminiscent of the finest vintage archtops, with vintage colored binding.
