zZounds Expert Review
The Gibson ES-390 is one of the less common "Electric-Spanish" models in the Gibson catalog of hollow-body guitars. I had the pleasure of playing one of these before their release, and it quickly impressed me, even unplugged. The vintage-style "AVR" bridge is screwed directly into the top to make a solid contact, and when paired with a hollow body, it helps this box resonate perfectly when plugged in. If you're not familiar with Gibson's naming conventions, get ready: the ES-390's comfortable, thin body takes the fully hollow body from the 330, and combines the body depth of a 335 with the narrow waist and lower bout of a 339. Still with me? Ok, rad. Even though I am not the jazz cat in the guitar gang here at zZounds, I can absolutely appreciate the slick tones from this little body, and now even more so with these re-voiced P-90's. The folks over at the Memphis factory spared no detail in recreating a '60s P-90 as they have in the past with some of their dead-on reissues of PAF and '57 Classics, and I feel this model's sound is in stark contrast to the ES-390 offered with mini-humbuckers. As someone that plays with more overdrive and distortion, my first reaction was to crank the volume to ten on these pups, which while not incorrect, isn't the best voice for my heavier attack and chording style. For all practical purposes, your sweet and mellow tones are not going to be coming from these pickups wide open, but the jazz rippers out there will appreciate that little bit of grit when swelling up on the volume. This blend of the best Gibson Memphis models makes me want to add a jazz lick or two to my book of tricks, and is sure to complement our fast-fingered-friends' playing.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
