This is one of the coolest Post-1970’s vintage special orders we have ever encountered, this was made for perhaps a “Prince” fan in what I refer to as “Purple Rain” Purple Metallic finish during a time when Gibson did not make that many custom guitars, quite early for any type of Pre-Custom Shop work rarely ordered & actually produced, these ES-347’s are fabulous guitars having all of Gibson’s best options that players & collectors crave, its multi-bound maple construction & maple neck are like a 355 of this period, its Ebony fingerboard has big block inlays, its 2 Epoxy filled Humbuckers sound fantastic, its got all gold hardware including its Gibson/Schaller tuners to its adjustable bridge & its factory Stop Tailpiece, one of the coolest features on it & we believe original is its Clear Pickgard that has kept its Purple color unfaded under it, this has slight weather checking & some wear to its gold parts but is 100% original & certainly the rarest 347 ever made, its exceptionally clean overall & comes with its original Black/Red Lined case.
