GIBSON USA SG LTD Supreme " Lava-Burst + Ebony " (2002)


An absolute work of art, the fit and finish are nothing short of jaw-dropping. Just look at that Maple Cap ! 

Another Time-capsule piece, and in pristine MINT condition. A gorgeous 2002 Gibson SG Supreme in the ever awesome, Lava Burst finish! This one has a very nice deep flame fade, as well as having ornate inlay work on the fretboard done with great artistic detail. Overall it just looks extra special and lives up to the “Supreme” name. What you see here is a clean, and shiny guitar which was hand-picked in-person at the Gibson factory in Nashville, TN. No scratches. No scuffs. The only thing worth mentioning is a hint of tarnishing to the machine heads. Included is the original Gibson hard-case, candy, and import papers ( 1 original owner).


1999 was part of Gibson's first trial run for the lovely Supreme SG. These were fairly limited in production so i expect to see some good investment potential. The SG Supreme sports the Flame Maple top that for decades has distinguished the most valuable and desirable Gibson Les Paul models. The earlier AA flamed maple tops were often more outstanding than in later years - like this one (although subtle) is quite deep. 

All gold hardware. Real ebony fret-board.  Unbelievably sweet USA Made Gibson-style slice of Americana. 

Action is low, smooth and perfect with no buzzing or weird spots. Stadium-ready tone comes from the amazing '57 Classic Humbuckers. Alnico II magnets, vintage enamel-coated wire, nickel-plated pole pieces, nickel slugs, maple spacers, and 2-conductor braided wiring make these '57s true vintage style heavyweights that dish out creamy clean tones, screaming sustain, and gravelly crunch. Gibson's classic wood combination of maple-on-mahogany body with a mahogany set neck adds incredible resonance and sustain.
