1948 Gibson Super 400 . I was told that the original owner sent the instrument to Gibson in the late 50's to have the PAF installed . The original owner
had the engravings done to the old plastics . Bigsby was probably done when the PAF went in there . Action is low with no string buzz . Frets are in excellent condition . OHSC . $8750 plus shipping

Three-Homer bump.




Absolutely gorgeous.
Pardon me for asking, but is the fretboard light ebony or dark rosewood? I think Super 400s sported ebony boards, didn't they?.

Lovely jazz box. I'm curious why the two tone and vol knobs and switch if it only has one pickup?

I have no clue . The harness assembly has not been worked on ( old solder joints ) . All the pots and knobs are original .
