Notes: Handbuilt in Kalamazoo in the old Gibson plant, the Super Eagle is the flagship of the Heritage line. The equivalent to the Super 400CES, the Super Eagle shares the same materials and specifications as its Gibson cousin, including the solid carved quartersawn spruce top, solid flame maple back and sides, inlaid ebony fingerboard and parallel bracing.

An elegant super jumbo jazz box, this big guitar is carved of deeply figured tiger flame maple, and has the warm, buttery voice of a finely carved graduated soundboard. This handsome instrument is in superb original condition, with smooth, low action over a fresh high precision setup, on a sold ebony fingerboard with fine original medium jumbo fretwork.

Custom touches include twin Seymour Duncan Seth Lover humbucking pickups, gleaming all chrome hardware, and a six finger tailpiece with individual adjuster wheels. The finish is masterfully shaded, showing the grain of the tonewood all the way to the rims. The guitar is free of pick, buckle, thumb or fingerboard wear, showing only a few incidental nicks in the lustrous vintage wine burst finish.

Tone is warm and buttery, as befits an instrument of its magisterial size and pedigree, and plays effortlessly with an elegantly slim neck profile. A versatile player, perfectly set up and ready to roll. The top of the line, and a true best buy in an all carved US built super jumbo archtop. One only, call now.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge nickel roundwound strings.. The guitar will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference. String action is set at 4/64" to 5/64" at the 12th fret, with moderate relief. The action may be lowered or raised to your requirements with the adjustable bridge.

Case: Original deluxe Heritage logo arched plush lined hardshell case.
