"... A very warm 'woody' sounding instrument, this guitar is essentially a deluxe version of Gibson's ES-335. Custom features abound with its ebony fingerboard, mother-of-pearl block inlays, 3-ply binding on the headstock, updated hardware and gold-plating. A stock feature on the ES-347 was the addition of a series/coil-tap switch which gives the player a choice of some very 'un-Gibson-like' single-coil tones for spanky funk rythms and clear cutting leads. This guitar excels in a wide variety of musical situations from mainstream jazz and blues to modern funk and fusion. Built at Gibson's famous old Kalamazoo, Michigan factory, this instrument is in mint condition despite its age."
