Ok, here's the story. As you may know, I'm still waiting for THAT McCarty 594, my holy grail. Not much in Europe so patience is my ally. A month ago I grabbed a bargain in a mint Gibson ES-339, because lately I wanted to try one of these semihollow. Just for having one, more versatility among my axes, bla bla bla... but WOW! I found out that this guitar has that fullness, that warm tone, airy but punchy, that tone that I have ever expected in a good Gibson. Where the hell you've been til now? I play it every day since then. And for a couple of days I've thinking, "OK, if my PRSi are better than my Gibsons, and now I love this guitar... Would a PRS hollowbody be the authentic holy grail I've been waiting for?" So, what can you tell me about this model? Is a better ES guitar or is it something different?
