New 339--First Gibson

Recommended Posts

Just received my new es-339 w/ 30/60 neck and Vint. Sunburst finish. This is my first Gibson and I'm very pleased. Actually, I am blown away...what an awesome guitar. I am a small guy with small hands and th 30/60 neck is the best feeling neck I have played on. I wondered if anyone had any thoughts about the strings. What do the guys on here think about Gibson strings vs others?

That's great! Congratulations. We want pictures!!! I like Gibson strings, but I tend to use D'Addario more. Anything with nickel plating is good...

i really like gibson vintage reissue strings, but im not paying those prices....so i have been using EB Slinky 10s. cheap and effective. not a fan of d'addario myself, but different strokes.

Thanks for all the recommendations! The more I play it, the more I'm loving the 339. I have used elixers strings in the past. But, I am growing dissasitisfied with those. I've really liked the Gibson strings that came w/ the 339. I've loved reading all the posts in here...you guys helped make my decision to go with this guitar. I'll post some pics as soon as I get a chance.

Heh, I feel the same way about my 339...I might've never checked it out if it hadn't been for this forum.

 

Congrats, and look forward to the pics! :-)

 

As for strings I am a die-hard Elixer guy, but that's more out of necessity as I sweat acid. I will say that I find them very bright with the 339, and may experiment with some different brands just out of "tonal curiosity"...
