I am a guitar player since 1959 and have played intrumental guitar rock all my life. I do all my repairs and hotrodding at home. Also own nice rocking guitars and amps. Does anybody else have a short scale 347? I ordered mine with 23 3/4" scale and it workd for me. Jazz chords are eazy to play, string bends are also very nice for blues. I have never heard of anybody with this neck. It must be rare. Just 1979 from Gibson.
