Just wanted to thank everyone who looked at photos and help me out with this one. Was really worried it was a fake. Really excited for this guitar. It’s a 2008 and ebony fretboard. Stoked about the ebony instead of richlite. Plays and sounds great. I’ve included some pics up close on it. Thanks again everyone for helping me out.

why is there 6 latches on the case?
Is the shroud supposed to not be attached?

As beautiful as that guitar is, why would it even matter if it was a fake?:applause:

Enjoy that beautiful, great guitar. Supremes are fantastic guitars and because people have had bad experiences with fakes, the real ones end up severely underpriced. The only minor downside is that it's tricker to get at the guts for modding or pickup swaps, but that's hardly a big deal. I love the woods, the ebony board, and the finish. Yours is spectacular.

Very nice! As for the case I don't believe it's an original. Maybe someone else knows for sure.

the case should be original. Hopefully someone can chime in. Just thought it was weird to have 6 latches and a shroud that wasn’t attached to case

Yes. The Supreme has an extra latch on the case and a shroud that is not attached. Congratulations! I now know where the twin to mine ended up! :)

it got new strings gibson vintage nickel 10-46 and some 000 steel wool to clean the fretboard and frets up. some guitar honey on the board and a good wipedown. plays great. i figured since it was chambered it would be lighter but it weighs 10 pounds even. but holy cow does it sustain. sounds beautiful clean and gets down right rude and nasty with gain. i did notice it has a warmth and smoothness i wasn't expecting. is that the chambers causing it to be that way i would guess.
