Beautiful Gibson ES-347 - 1981 in Kalamazoo
This guitar is one of the best I've ever played or owned. The neck is 60's slim and fast. The tone is incredible with Dirty Fingers pups and a coil tap splitter that works as you'd always wanted it to work. This guitar is a solid workhorse. In '81 they still made them with a thick volute at the base of the neck, the weak spot on the 335. This one feels like you could hit it with a hammer and not dent it. It's a tone monster as well. It's been my number one axe since I got it. It blows away my 335's, 345, and my 137. The first thing you'll notice about it is how solid it feels in your hands, and that is reflected in the playing.
It also has fine tuners on the bridge with violin style claw retainers and flip up string winders on the machine heads. This is a really useful feature.
I've found Gibson Brite Wire 10.0;s to be the best fit for this machine. Neck is straight, frets are excellent. There are a few minor flaws in the finish here and there, but nothing really noticeable. I'd give it a 9 out of 10 for appearance, a 10 for sound and playability.
Great for Jazz, Rock, Fusion. This one will be a long-enduring classic.
Ask any questions, I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Note to overseas buyers: I will gladly ship to the designated
