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 premium model has developed an insider's following in the years since.
Guitare Collection is proud to offer this superb 1979 Gibson Super V CES model (second year of production) in a classy Tobacco Sunburst finish.
This guitar is made from solid carved maple back and sides, solid spruce top, all surrounded by a nice 7-ply binding. The neck is made from three pieces of maple and walnut centerstripes. It is set with a solid ebony fretboard with Super 400 style block fingerboard inlay. The neck is also decorated with a Super 400 style split diamond and the back of the head has a pearl inlay too.
The Pat. N° Gibson humbucking pickups controled by a three-way switch and four potentiometers (volume and tone for each pickup) allows to explore a wide range of tones, very rich in harmonies.
The six-finger tailpiece allows a perfect tuning of each string with individual height adjustment.
This Super V is in a very good shape for its age, even if it shows some signs of wear & play. It has known no break or reparation and is in fully original condition. It will be sold in its original Gibson hard case.
The guitar has been optimized by the settings of our resident luthier and plays very comfortably with low action and a perfect tone accuracy.
