Ten years ago I bought a 339. It's hard to believe they've been around that long.

Time flies, I remember having to take a ride down to MD to check them out.
Nice guitars but I figured that it wouldn't get used much so never owned one.

I will have had mine 3 years in March 18. I love its subtle, warm sounds.

I have gigged it several times now and it's a little different (from solids). It does feedback more, but its completely controllable. In fact its quite nice sometimes to finish a song with a bit of feedback.
I sometimes think; therefore I am intermittent

After looking at the pic I did not realize they were that tiny compared to a 335's.

I don't know, they have always looked strange to me. Like the proportions are just not quite right, sort of like how travel guitars look. To be honest though, I have never seen/played one in person.

When I was looking for my ES-330 I thought the size might be a problem but since I got it I have never felt like it was uncomfortable. I am not a big guy either, 5'9" and 160lbs.

Used to have one, loved it...then started to have issues with size :-k [blush] So got rid of it and bought a 335 instead. Love that guitar!

Awesome guitar. If I had to get rid of all my guitars and could only keep one, the 339 would be it.

Not a Gibson, wish it were, but Epiphone ES-339 Pro with P90's. Very comfortable. So much so I did sell an ES-335 as I found it too large for me despite being 6'2".
