A fantastic example of the Gibson Super 400. This guitar, in the more rare ebony finish, is a show stopper! Nicknamed "The Black Widow" due several of the arachnids residing in the box upon recovering the unit from longterm storage. The spiders have since found new homes, and what remains is what you'd expect from a barely used 1992 Gibson time capsule!

Condition: Excellent cosmetic and functional condition

Conditional Notes: Overall very little wear, guitar is in incredible condition for age.

The body of the Super 400-CES remains the largest produced by Gibson today, with the following dimensions: 18 (W) X 21¾ (L) X 3⅜ (D). Its top is crafted from high-grade spruce, with high-grade maple used for the back and sides. The body is then adorned with multi-ply black and white binding on both the top and back, with single-ply white binding around the f-holes. The gold hardware includes an ABR-1 bridge with a base made from ebony, and Gibson’s period-correct L-5 tailpiece. The 25½-inch scale length neck is a five-piece neck made primarily from high-grade maple, with two streamers made from high-grade walnut, resulting in one of the most stunning neck designs in the history of Gibson Custom.
