Pickups on my ES-347

Recommended Posts

[confused]

 

Hi everyone,

 

I have recently cleaned my 347 and wanted to have a look at the pickups.

 

I was expecting to see the Dirty Fingers however this is what I found in there.

 

Opinions PLEASE!!! [thumbup]

I'm pretty sure Dirty Fingers are wax potted and have more than one lead. Does the coil tap work on your 347?

They can't be Dirty Fingers because those pickups have two rows of screws and probably don't ever have covers on them. However, it might be helpful if you could at least tell us what year your guitar is.

I have a 79 ES-347.  I'm the second owner. Everything about it was fantastic until the Bridge pickup went south.  I have a set of DiMarzio DP 260 & 261 to install in it  now.  After opening her up

I found some of the other guts could stand retirement also.  So !  I have ordered all new guts from Gibson.  I hope that sweet sound is still there after the repairs.
