    It was inevitible with the success of the 339. I'm guessing it will be a more decked out version with fancier inlays and a flamed maple top, though they are also intrducing the "figured" 339 as well. If anyone finds a pic, please show it here or add a link.

    I've been looking at maybe buying and ES-355 and now the 359 might be a contender as well. Cool info!

    The 339 is a 335 in a Les Paul size, right?

    Anyone got any pictures of these new models?

    The 339 is comparable in size to a Les Paul. Mine is extremely comfortable to play and very lightweight.

    My cherry 339 with 59 neck is my number one. I'd love to check out a 359 if it is like a Les Paul Custom in appointments. My number 2 is a black LP Custom.

    Pre-orders available at GC.com and also musiciansfriend now. Hmm...I might have to stick to the plain 339 at those prices..

    I'm still debating on grabbing a 339 with my tax check. I'm afraid the GAS is overtaking me. Again!!!

    I was hoping this would have a flame top and a Bigsby......if this is a 339 with an ebony fingerboard..it's WAY overpriced....339s are $1799


    $1200 more just for an ebony fingerboard....
