Roy Rogers played a 1948 Gibson Super 400 in the "Sons of the Pioneers". His was made in March of 1948 and this one I'm offering for sale was made in June of 1948 and in all probability the same fellow [or woman] built both of these guitars. Production of this model was stopped in 1941 for World War II and resumed in year 1947.
But so few were made that year that the production total  listed is for both years 1947 and 1948.... I thought this was all interesting and you probably don't so let's get to this guitar.... Was well cared for with little play wear at all. No issues other than the dull spots on the pickguard. Guitar is setup to play well.Just it had it in the shop to get checked out. A piece of binding had shrunk a hair and it was repaired.
The bone nut had a rough edge and it was taken care of. Had a chip in the headstock that was fixed. Had a little chip at the pickguard bracket that was fixed.
Has had a neck reset at one point, I was told it was 25 years ago. It's as good a reset as I've ever seen. Neck angle is spot on. Guitar plays well and sounds as you would expect. Has the original case, it has a little wear and tear but it's protected this guitar well....
I really don't know what I can add to this description. This was Gibson's flagship guitar for their entire guitar line.
Look over the pictures very carefully. Please request more pictures if you're serious. I'll take more photos in another light so you can see how pretty this old girl is...Ask all the questions that you want. We sell our guitars "AS IS". Please pick you jaw up off the floor now.
We are as honest about our guitars as we can be. These old guitars just don't travel that great if you don' know what you're doing. This can be a problem for both of us.
We know problems can come up. We have an excellent reputation for taking care of problems.
