I didn't have a guitar with 2 "normal" humbuckers and my GAS got the better of me when I saw a blemished 2018 ES-339 on sale. I also have a 2018 ES-330 which might be my favorite guitar, and the ES-339 feels similar in the hand. They are both "rounded C" neck profiles which I really like. The MHS II pickups sound... like Gibson humbuckers. I haven't played a guitar with PAF-style humbuckers in many years, but these are about what I was expecting. Both guitars have minor quality control issues, although this guitar has fewer flaws than the ES-330 did. I'm happy with my purchase. I would've rather gotten one with a Bigsby but I couldn't find an ES-339/336 with a factory Bigsby. I am thinking I'll put a B3 on it.
