Gibson / Super 300 / 1954 / Sunburst / Guitar For Sale
Gibson’s Super 300 was meant to be a less ornate version of the top-of-the-line, enormous 18” Super 400. A large-bodied beast, this one provides the classic punchy, bright tone with plenty of volume. It’s a very clean piece as well, with only very light checking on the top and no buckle rash at all. The laminated, beveled-edge pickguard is just as clean and corrosion-free. With original blank one-stripe Kluson tuners and three-cutout tailpiece, the only modification is an added strap button on the neck heel.
Body: 18" carved spruce top, maple back and sides with very nice quilting on the back. Sunburst finish.
Neck: Maple with bound Brazilian rosewood fretboard, split parallelogram inlays, crown peghead inlay. Medium-wide, round profile.
Tone: Bright and punchy with nice even volume.
Cosmetic Condition: Very clean, with no buckle marks and very light checking on the top. No neck wear to speak of besides a couple of dents.
Modifications: Strap button added on neck heel. The pickguard has most likely been replaced since it does not have a beveled edge and is so clean. The treble side binding on the neck has been reglued near the pickguard.
Case: Original hardshell
Asking Price: $6,595.00
