In addition to a number of new signature guitars, Gibson has announced an expansion of its Modern collection. 

New for 2021 are three Nashville-made semi-hollows – the ES-335 Satin, a new ES-339, and ES-339 Figured guitars. 

The ES-335 Satin features a three-ply maple/poplar/maple body and maple center block, a rounded C-shaped mahogany neck, and a rosewood fretboard. Sonically, it features all-new Gibson Calibrate T-Type humbuckers, controlled by two volume and two tone controls, and a three-way selector.

Elsewhere, the guitar boasts a light-weight ABR-1 bridge and Stop bar tailpiece, and Vintage Deluxe tuners.

The Gibson ES-335 Satin is available now – in Cherry, Vintage Burst, and Natural Burst finishes – for $2,599.

The new ES-339 models are available in figured and non-figured editions, which are identical but for the AAA maple veneer top that adorns the ES-339 Figured.

Both guitars feature a three-ply maple/poplar body and maple center block, a rounded C-shaped mahogany neck, and a rosewood fretboard. Sounds come by way of a ‘57 Classic + bridge pickup and a ‘57 Classic neck pickup, controlled by two volume and two tone controls, and a three-way selector.

Other features on the guitars include a ABR-1 bridge and Stop bar tailpiece and Grover Rotomatic tuners with Kidney buttons. 

The Gibson ES-339 is available in Cherry and Trans Ebony finishes for $2,299, while the Gibson ES-339 Figured is available in Sixties Cherry and Blueberry Burst finishes for $2,999.
