1979 Gibson Super V BJB Model!

One of the best archtops Gibson made in my opinion. Here's a great example. It's a 1979 Gibson Super V with the BJB floating pickup. Less holes on the top is better for tone and acoustic abilities. The guitar has no issues and is super clean besides a few small dings on the top. It's not mint, but is definitely in excellent condition. No strap button drilled on the heel! Comes with original hardshell case and case key. Really a beautiful example of this model. The guitar has been setup and is playing great!

This is a super resonant guitar, especially for this era. The Super V was a hybrid model that Gibson made in the late 70's and 80's. It is basically an L-5 body, with a Super 400 neck. This particular model, the "Super V B.J.B." features an all acoustic body (no jack hole, no pickup cutout), a floating BJB Gibson pickup, tone and volume controls on the pickguard, 25-1/2" scale, 1-11/16" nut width, Grover sealfast tuners... 100% original with no breaks. Nice clean premium Gibson archtop.
