339 setup


Recommended Posts

Hmmm... I also own a ES 335, EXTREMELY fast neck and low action. I guess I would setup a 339 in the same manner, as low as possible. Adjusting the truss rod and the bridge. Its a sort of trial an error process. If your 339 didnt come with a truss rod wrench, a 5/16" socket wrench, or any other kind of wrench, will work. If you dont feel comfortable doing this yourself, just hire a repair guy to do it. I would have called one, but I wanted the experience of setting up a guitar. Don't forget to intonate as well.


Another thing to think about is what you're going to play on the 339. Guitars used mainly for slide guitar work have a relatively high action vs. a guitar you would be shredding on.


Good Luck!
