I just bought my first Gibson ES. It is a 2008 ES-339. A scaled down version of the ES-335. I was surprised to find no ES club had been started yet, so I thought I'd get the ball rolling. All ES owners are welcome. Only one rule. You must post pics! I picked this one up locally for $1400. Was in very good shape and played very little. I love how it sounds. It's different than my Strat or Tele, and I believe a nice addition to my collection. I had a Les Paul Classic and never really bonded with it. It was hard on my shoulders on stage due to it's weight. This ES seems lighter, and sounds excellent. I can feel the bonding already!
