Gibson ES-347

Serial no. 92190415 (1990)

This ES-347 is an upgraded version of the ES-335 work horse. Gibson made these between 1978-1992 (see Gibson catalog 1983). In addition to the gold hardware and binding, it features a coiltap-switch which turns the humbuckers into single coil pickups (so I don’t need to switch guitars so often during a gig). The ES-347 has a large array of sounds, great sustain thanks to the “Sustain Sisters” and has a very pleasant neck.

I bought this ES-347 in 2007 from the famous Dutch singer/guitarist Kaz Lux (a.o. Brainbox with Jan Akkerman)
