1978 Memphis SUPER V Jazz Box Electric guitar very high quality copy of the Gibson WoW! .... $ Inquire for pricing thank you for your interest|
Here we have another great find for your serious consideration this example is a very high Quality Jazz guitar that is a Super detailed vintage Replica of the great Gibson L- 5 - Super 400 style... This guitar was built in 1978 and if you have noticed the similarities between this and our other vintage Aria Matsomoku factory crafted guitars you are not seeing things this Memphis was made side by side with the same materials & the very same luthiers and was labeled Memphis during the Law Suit Era this is the very same guitar no differences other than Memphis in Mother of Pearl logo instead of Aria... other than that no differences what so ever...This example as a Beautiful Sitka Spruce top, Flamey Maple neck & the back is figured Birdseye Maple WoW!.. This is a great Matsomoku's Top Quality effort whet into these top of the line exact Replica's these originally were not for export and were for the high end Japanese market and not seen here until much later later... This example of the Super V Electric Hollow-body guitar in most excellent condition and is in perfect playing order no fret out or buzzing or dead spots. Super EZ action with excellent intonation. This great guitar was made in Japan and RJ780504 is on the back of the headstock so we believe it dates it as a 1978. The body is the size of an L-5 and the neck is that of a Super 400. This guitar is extremely high quality with regards to workmanship & materials used in its construction. The frets are like brand new as though it has never been played and put under the bed for 33 years so you could have a nearly new vintage guitar WoW!. As far as the overall looks go THEY NAILED IT - It is EXACTLY like a 1969 Iced Ted Super 400. There are just a few marks superficial nicks (that may polish out I have not tried yet but I may) on the back
Body depth is 3 3/8" and the width is 17" and the scale length is 25 1/2"..
This guitar comes with what I believe is the very nice original hard-shell case.
