Gibson ES-347
Guitar USA made 1978 1992 a few years so hyper luxurious derivative of the 355 or 335, gibson bridge classic, round tasty as the 335, ebony fingerboard (I say luxurious), 22 frets, gold hardware (real gold plated directly from the mine) beautiful, mechanical oil bath, fine tuning the bridge (really useless, the guitar does not move but good) 2 volumes 2 tones, switch 3 positions for a little more classic splitter, two Burstbucker pickups good.
Guitar beautiful! it is the custom of the 335/355! listed less yet strangely more beautiful and versatile. Finishing dream! I have 23 years refrettée 4 times including once by a great luthier'm saying I will not say that Lyon's name, to the point where I had to make refretter just after .....
I also changed the jumpers carved by time and the nut, electronics has not changed, not even the shadow of a scrouitch scrouitch in 23 years.


Handle the most enjoyable I've had ridiculously low action allows the weight is reasonable, it is perfectly balanced, access to acute is, no default. The sound is a treat, everything is there when I do not use other zicos scold me even splitted sounds are not ridiculous. Not breathing.


It is a good PE so you can get the Jazz, rock and a bit of everything (I do not know the musette), I tried all sorts of tie wire spider clothesline, best c is the 11-52, good sustain heavy load, the micro is a treat serious decline is a bit sharp and G Benson is in the room, it splits to go with him,
Both pickups together it is we all frequencies cool for rock, split it's quieter but no change level to own kind of Electronic and breathless,
The treble is excellent rich set shining firmament.
She live everywhere, we feel it physically, it is a treat.
I tried all sorts of amp (mesa, marshall, vox, fender etc. ..) it sounds it sounds, it sounds just a tiny tendency to get feedback on the marshall?


I use it for 23 years, three refrettages, (4 due to other Crét $ £ *), varnish under the forearm is a little less bright, a good 23 years anyway ...
Under the heel at the junction varnish is gone I do not know why or where? but it is even more beautiful.
I had numerous guitars (prs, musicman, Godin ...), it remains to me only 4 but this is the one that I will take to a desert island (with the current), she has traveled the world with me, this is my best guitar without vibrato.
The value for money was excellent imported direct USA, only the box has aged badly, I would do this choice with your eyes closed, in fact if you see one secondhand do not hesitate, this is a 335 better, more beautiful, more sound and less expensive because less unfairly listed. In addition there is no chance of getting a fake Chinese copy like some other Gibson.
The most beautiful, the oldest and most good!

Gibson ES-347
Guitar made in United States, measurements are identical to the 335. forthe wood, I'm not an expert, all I can tell it's a ebony fingerboard
ds inlays are mother of pearl rectangles (true pearl, beautiful!) as the models gibson custom home
the original is a chvalet TP6, with adjustment screw purposes, such as a sr violoncellepar example. mine has a Bigsby that is not original, but it seems that a custom model came out with the Bigsby and the screw holes for fixing the bridge would be covered with a metal cap with the included custom ...

The main strength of this guitar is the versatility of sounds, dan the sphere of the 335 but with a hundred times more opportunities!
Each microphone is a splittable swtch two positions.

the handle is intended only to Canadian loggers

the sound is very very good, good ac and distributes well.


The handle is a real ancient oak tree trunk.
access to the treble is easy, it's like a 335.
ergonomics is very good, the guitar does not sting the nose and the handle so it is vertical rather easy qd even quite the game
on the other hand for weight, planning sessions, physiotherapy, before playing for your muscles and shoulders well as it should, and after too, because decidedly it is a real hard place!

for her, no doubt, the gibson, and the best vintage!
the blues of course, the switch can provide a range of sounds like the BB King Lucille, it's going from very dark to very bright

its pure jazz too, to Scoffield, Pat Metheny, and Barney Kessel, Joe Pass, playing on the set

the rock-bottom balloons! microphones would be dirty fingers, very silky and very clear sound with heavy distortion or saturation

the crunch is beautiful

for trash, not double pkoi a mix with this guitar ...

Therefore c's all good !!!!!


It is suitable for many things to tell the truth, jazz, blues, pop, rock, reggae, ska /.... is not clear or set the limits with this guitar!!

I managed to play a Line 6 Flextone III XL, all config dampli are good with this amp.
I also play a vox a smaller lamp, the c the killer sound!

I prefer the sound serious micro switch, which gives a great sound to pop, and if the micro switch for non-serious jazz, rather the intermediate position for blues and rock for the bridge pickup.


This guitar is the guitar!
are more versatile than a 335, everything is good in her!
it is no longer fabriuée long ago, its production ranging from 1978 to 1986 or something like that.
I do not sell it for anything and if the choice had to be rebuilt, of course I do it again!
It's still a vintage guitar by definition, no longer produced, that sounds wonderful and goes on any terrain with great ease and musical sound quality second to none.
frankly, pkoi buy a 335 are in these conditions?

So this guitar is ouiiiiiiiiii boooooooooooonne, it is incroyaaaaaaaaaaaable !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

nikolayu972's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The best guitar I've ever had"

Gibson ES-347
Made in USA
Similar to an ES 335 level violin!
In fact, the ES 347 is the luxury version of the ES 335!
Possibility to split each pickup to play them in double or single coil in addition to classical selector


Made in USA, this guitar is available in several styles!
Nomal version and the version of Second poorer quality of materials or finished lower than what it seems.
Mine is a normal version, and I must say it is superb, both in its gameplay than its finish and sound!
It's really the best guitar I've ever tried.
Ebony keys are super enjoyable and accessible to the tweeter is easy!


great sound! Gibson's great!
I play a Fender Tweed Bassman 59 RI and I must admit that it sounds great.
I had a bad experience with a Les Paul Custom Black Beauty which rang on my Bassman not terrible, and I had some apprehension before buying my ES 347, but now I'm convinced this is the best Gibson :-)


A wonder!
I think that Gibson would boost production of this jewelry because it is great art!
It's really a collector's item as much by the quality of the instrument by its rarity (especially in non-model second).
One thing is for sure, mine will stay with me!
I do not ever sell ;-)

hugo280's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Exeptionel"

Gibson ES-347
This model dates from 1987
is the odds black bauty attracted me here in the photo.
2 microphones dirty finger at high output levels.
is a model Segond there is some slight defect painted the connection of the handle to the body that does not interfere and that's obvious if we pay attention.
'Cest therefore a model that is not premium but do not suffer in comparison.
I put 9 because it's not a prenium but this does not hinder.


I just had this look apm has a model 335 of 2008 that a friend of mine owns.
bauty also a black and we really had a funny surprises.
the selector switch that allows this model by the double to single brings hugely.
I understand the choice of micro fingu as dirty can not be diminishing in volume going from two to one.
Then I who detste 500t ceramic microphones on a les paul classic I can afraid of these famous dirty fingu.
and in fact it is exeptionel hot very hot and it gives the 347 has vs one of 335 aujoud'hui enormously deep and dynamic.
it is also heavier.
the handle is between 60 and 50 a profile he has baucoup please people.


Can look at a really rock or jazz style.
it sounds very much like a deep voice.
is less accurate than a les paul but the cavity brings a depth inimitable.
The cellulose varnish as a crack slightly as the old gibson.
This gives a charm to the instrument


I tried to model and through significant vrament I fell for it.
It's really a guitar try.
It is becoming harder to find because it is increasingly sought and gibson stopped producing it for quite some years.


it's that quiet.
