The ES-347 TD had a somewhat brightner tone and better sustain than most other Gibson ES guitars - due to the brass nut and they way the bridge was mounted on two 5/8" brass studs. Pickups were intially two high output Series VII Super Humbuckers but were changed to "Dirty fingers" humbuckers during the 1980s..
