Electric Spanish range has been around for decades, and over the years the general concept of the series hasn`t changed that much. ES models come as either fully hollow (which is the case here), or semi-hollow (models like 339, 335, etc). This middle-class six-stringer (middle class only in relation to the rest of the Gibson Memphis lineup) comes with a double-cut body with arched back and top, and almost mandatory "f" holes on the said arched top. Its body is entirely made of three-ply maple/poplar/maple combination, with creme binding around both the top and back. Bridge section on this limited edition Electric Spanish guitar is made up of two elements, the AVR-2 bridge in the front and a traditional trapezoid tailpiece in the back. Pickups selected for this model are MHS P-90s with dog-ear casings. The Lead position pickup features reversed polarity. Two tone knobs, two volume knobs and a three-way toggle pickup switch comprise the controls unit. Mahogany neck is fit with a traditional C profile in the back (one of many vintage features introduced for 2015) and has a bound rosewood fingerboard on top. 22 low profile frets, block inlays, rolled edges, creme binding and 1.675" wide bone nut make up the fingerboard. Vintage-styled Kluson Tulip tuners are found on the traditional Gibson headstock.

I owned a 1964 Gibson ES-330 and I purchased the ES-390 to replace my long lost 330. I received my new guitar in pristine condition after being shipped all the way across Canada in the winter time. I found the build quality to be absolutely superior to the '64 build. This is the first guitar I've ever purchased that was spot on perfect from the moment I picked it up. I have all the tools and have always had to tinker with the set up on any new guitar but so far I haven't had to monkey with this ES-390. I read some comments here that seem to say Gibson isn't top shelf at times but I own several guitars and my Gibson experience has always been total satisfaction. There's a stack of Fenders and Gibsons in the basement but since the ES-390 arrived they all sit in their cases longing to be played.
