Gibson ES-347 TD, ES-355 TD SV, BB King Standard and Custom

1981 Gibson (Rosetti, UK) catalogue page 13

Catalogue page featuring a selection of Gibson's higher end thinline models: the ES-347, ES-355 TD SV and BB King Standard and Custom.

The ES-347 was very much a fancier version of the ES-335TD. It had the same basic construction (except for an ebony rather than rosewood fingerboard) and the same pickups, though these were gold plated. It did have the new design TP-6 tailpiece, also gold plated.

This was the final UK (and worldwide) catalogue appearance of the ES-355TD SV that had been in the Gibson line continuously since 1958; it was largely replaced by the BB King Custom, not pictured here, though the BB King Standard, with dot inlays and chrome hardware is shown.

1981 UK pricing: ES-347 £999; BB King Standard £1100; ES-355 TD SV £1200; BB King Custom £1400.
