ES339 pro upgrades?

Recommended Posts

Good day all,

 

Has anyone started moding the es339pro? Just asking if anyone has taken the plunge....pickups? Bone nut?

Different hardware? I am tempted to spruce up the 339 to more of the Gibson 339 specs....

Any thoughts or comments?

 

Thanks

Roy

That's a good question, I am wondering if a pup change would be a drama on the ultra version with the tuner and led's in the pickup ring. Not planning on this but just curious. Does the pro version have a white nut?

With a few upgrades you could really make this guitar a real dark horse, good luck and post some pics :-)

Changed strings a couple times. Got some Ernie Ball Fat tops Skinny Bottoms on right now.

 

Was thinking about rewiring it but that'll have to wait......

My Natural finish Pro has a white nut.

I changed my 339 switch tip from black to a cream one. I think they were originally cream then they must have had a shortage of those and now they fit black ones.

 

Hardly a project but hey, whatever makes you happy.

I have a cherry ES-339 Pro. Only cosmetic things I have done so far is removed the pickguard and swap the knobs for amber speed knobs. I would be curious about a pickup swap since the stock pickups connect to a small circuit board at the pots. Looks like changing pickups will require a rewiring.
