I am a Les Paul Player but was looking for a special guitar for my blues music. Man did I find it! This guitar stays in tune forever because of the straight pull headstock. I don't know why Gibson doesn't put this headstock on all their guitars. It is way better!Anyway, the only thing I did not like about it was the pickups. They were 57's and it sounded too close to my Les Paul to suit me. I wanted something totally different. So I bought some custom made P-90's that are designed to fit in the humbucker slots (P-94's).Let me tell you, that this thing is priceless now.The P-94's are so responsive to volume control.As for the neck. It is very smooth and fast!The finish is Gibson's finest work. It is very nice to look at.It is not heavy. It is very back-friendly. Although I did have to get used to it for that reason. I am used to the heavy feel of my LP.I would recommend this guitar to anyone wanting a semi-hollowbody.The look is to die for, and so is the feel.As for the sound. If the 57 humbucker sound is what you like. It's got it. If not. Well, Pickups can be replaced!Try the P-94's. You will love them!
Only looked at the picture and just this would be a great guitar for any music. Just a little high priced. Wish I had all the specs. though.
I am a Gibson Les Paul Standard owner myself, but I am familiar with the Gibson ES-346 through the work of Daryl Stuermer, who has toured with Genesis and Phil Collins since 1978. He used his ES-346 on the Phil Collins First Final Farewell tour, and it sounded great on both the fast and slow songs. It gave all the songs a new feel and a reform (so to speak). Most of those songs have previously been played with a Fender Stratocaster. I particularly enjoyed it being played on the slow songs, as it sounded somewhat like a sitar when being played. If this guitar were still in production, I'd run out and trade my Les Paul Standard for it. I give it two thumbs up.
This guitar was made for electric blues. It's design speaks to that. Gibson puts it's best into this guitar and it shows. Effectively it's a -336 with a straight pull head. If you know the sound you get from '57 humbuckers, then you'll know the tonal quality you will get. Put that in a semi hollow mahogany body and you're there.
