Steve-What a way to start the new year. Sorry man. Hope insurance paid ya what it was worth. I bought my 347 in 1980 but think it's a '79. S/N 70119009. Can anyone confirm this? Yea mine has brass nut. Had some problems with coil tap switch but otherwise it practically plays itself. I've heard and read it wasn't a big seller is probably why it's hard to find info on 'em. Love to add a tremlo to mine and sure that'll affect value but hell I'll probably die with it anyways. Beautiful guitars you guys posted!
