With a reduced size ES body and a pair of Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers pickups, the Epiphone eClub 2014 ES-339 Semi-hollowbody has one foot in the past and one in the future, for a combination that is both instantly recognisable and refreshingly new.
With its smaller dimensions, the Epiphone eClub 2014 ES-339 brings the coveted, ES-style, bell-like tone together with the easy handling of a solid body. Making up the body is laminated maple, with a solid centre block, which is then finished with the classic Vintage Sunburst finish and a black pickguard adorned with an Epiphone “E” metal insignia.
Hand-set with a mortise and tenon neck joint and glued-in with Titebond glue, the mahogany neck of the Epiphone eClub 2014 ES 339 is shaped to the SlimTaper “D” profile. This makes up the guitar’s 24.75” scale, along with a rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and pearloid dot inlays. This features a single-ply cream binding that continues along the body.
This fantastically playable neck is sandwiched between a LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, and the Epiphone ES339 Electric Guitar’s headstock, which is equipped with a set of “Deluxe” tuners with tulip style buttons.
Continuing the theme of old meets new, the Epiphone eClub 2014 ES 339 is equipped with a pair of, as the name suggests, Epiphone Alnico Classic PRO humbucker pickups.
The controls are the classic collection of individual volume and tone control knobs for each pickup, which in this case have been treated to black tophats with metal inserts, and a three-way pickup selector.
