"Introduced in 1978, Gibson's Super V CES was a premium grade archtop that combined a number of Gibson' best loved designs. The Super V offered Super 400 styling on the more manageable 17" body of the L-5C, along with the solid carved body, long scale, parallel bracing, and all gold hardware. Unavailable since 1993, this rare top-shelf model has developed an insider's following in the years since."

This 1979 Super V is in excellent, near-original condition and was lovingly taken care of by a local musician. This distinctive model features a hand-carved bookmatched solid spruce top, carved maple back and sides; 3 piece tiger flame neck with walnut center stripes, a solid ebony fingerboard with Super 400 style block fingerboard inlay. Super 400 style split diamond headstock with Gibson logo and block-and-wedges inlay on the back; deluxe 7-ply body binding, 5-ply peghead and fingerboard binding, 3 ply back binding, bound f-holes, and a solid bone nut.

-Original tuners have been replaced with Schaller tuners.

-Bridge tone pot looks to be replaced. All other solder joints appear original.

-Original tuner holes were plugged and painted over.
