I bought my Epiphone ES 339 Pro from Andertons mail order in December 2013. It cost £339 and was supplied with a free Stagg gig bag.
Out of the box the set up was pretty poor, with the nut waaay too high and the intonation all over the place. I intonated myself, but took it in to Noiseworks in Coventry for a proper set up. It didn't need a fret job, just the nut slots, neck relief and pickup height sorting.
It's a great looking instrument, and the finish was generally good apart from the black paint in the f-holes which had a few spots missing. The control knobs were secure, but a little wonky. The "e" logo one the scratch plate became detached within a few days, but a good firm press secured it again and it's been fine ever since.
The neck is quite chunky, D shaped with a lot of shoulder, but extremely comfortable. The tuners are reliable and secure.
It's been my number 1 ever since I bought it.
Sound wise, it's lovely. Both pickups split with push-pull volume pots and all the sounds are usable, but to my ears it's best on the full neck humbucker where it sounds full and thick clean (roll the tone off about 1/3) and really chunky with a bit of dirt. The bridge has bite. I'd say it's best for blues, jazz and crunchy rock. Both pickups are quite well defined and I've not considered swapping them out for anything else. The electronics on the other hand are not the best, but more on that in a second.
It's held up to knocks and bumps well, apart from one that took a chip out of one of the knobs. The bridge and tailpiece are a bit pitted, but I like that.
I'm predominantly a home player, but it has seen two 14 gig runs in a show band. The first run went without a hitch, but the year after the switch failed leaving me with no sound in the middle of the most guitar heavy number. I fixed it temporarily with switch cleaner, but that had the unfortunate side effect of stripping off a bit of the black f-hole paint.
Since that run the guitar has been on the wall awaiting a clean up and strings. I'm also planning to fit a new switch, but it's a though the f-hole job so it'll take me a while to round to it unless it fails again. The only other mods I'm considering are removing the scratch plate and pickup covers.
In conclusion, it's a good guitar at its price point. It is well made, despite showing its budget nature in a few places, and if it was stolen I'd replace it with an identical one in a heartbeat.
