NEW! ES-390 in Faded Cherry & Vintage Sunburst

The fully-hollow construction emulates the traditionalism of the ES-330, the beautiful figured Maple body, and the bright, chiming character of two Mini-Humbuckers, all uniting to transform a simple piece of equipment into a new breed, a game-changer, a truly remarkable instrument that is destined to dwell with other dignified classics in the pantheon of the world’s greatest guitars. Gibson delivers on the principle that big tonal adaptability can come in small packages, from the opulent

depth of a jazz tone, to country twang, to the gritty and robust rock and roll resonance, the ES-390 is a bountiful bantam multitasking implement of musical diversity. After you have felt how comfortable and light it is, after you take in the splendor of the guitar’s appearance, and even after you have heard the smooth and present voice this guitar has… …you might still not believe it.

Wow, and I was just complaining about no Elitist Sheraton II (with mini-hbs) and no Riviera (with mini-hbs) and no Gibson alternatives...I was wondering to myself if the brains at Gibson decided mini-hbs were totally passe for the 20teens...:)


The ES-390 is apparently their way of saying, "shut up dummy." I must inspire the best in some people...(It's really a beautiful guitar, too.)


Boy, I guess I have to start complaining about no semi-hollow Gibson guitar with mini-hbs, now...


Should I complain about how Gibson should release a semi-hollow, maple center-block guitar with mini-hbs or a semi-hollow, chambered-mahogany body guitar with mini-hbs?
