For many years I have been a mostly acoustic singer-songwriter. In the last couple of years, I have been transitioning to electric and experimenting with my sounds. I wanted to find an electric guitar that I could play in bands but also use on my own when I perform. I considered the ES-335 but as a small female, I found a bit too big. I tried a few different guitars including many lovely fender strats however I settled with the 339. The 339 is perfect for blues/rock/pop music that I play. I find it extremely versatile ranging from a beefy heavy/bass tones to lighter tones when need be. Beautiful guitar, absolutely love it.
