Fabulous playing and sounding original USA Gibson ES-347 Sunburst 1979, with original hard case. This Gibson ES-335 style guitar has had an expert re-fret, which only enhances the experience of being hands on with this fine instrument.
The guitar features a ’70’s wider nut, (as Gibson had long moved away from the dinky narrow nut from the latter 1960’s). Gibson stop producing the extremely desired “Stop Tail” bridge manufactured from 1958 to 1964 on most ES-335’s, opting for a trapeze tail piece. This ES-347, was equipped new, with a TP-6 fine-tune stop tail. It is very common to find this TP-6 bridge in the case pocket and a standard stop tail fitted.
Other exciting features Gibson added to the ES-347 are Gold Hardware, large block inlays and a coil-tap switch, making it possible to revert from single coil (on both pickups) back to humbucking. The ES 347 Has been upgraded with Gibson Classic PAF pickups.
Overall, this Gibson ES-347 looks amazing! The sunburst finish is a great backdrop for the beautifully aged binding, together with the character 35 years has added to the gold hardware and finish.
A wonderful all round experience.
