I had actually pre-ordered a new 2024 model supreme from Sweetwater. They sent me pictures of it and I canceled the order. The history of the supreme is ; Gibson introduced the supreme in 2003 and stopped production in 2013. The reason for stopping production was, it slowed down overall production because it took twice as long to produce a supreme than a normal Les Paul. They did occasionally put out a model in the coming years until they decided to go back into full production in 2024. I was so disappointed in the new models. The new models arent even finished on the back, nothing more than a les paul with gold hardware which is why the old supremes are going to continue to rise in collector value in my opinion. I love the globe headstock, very unique to this era of Supremes and the beautiful finish front and back. I suggest you grab one before these older models go through the roof on price.

This is a 2004 model Les Paul supreme with a super nice top and back. This one has been played but not abused. AAAA flame top and AAA flame back. Both carved to perfection.

Has a few pick scratches and a couple of small dings (see pics) but for a 20 yr old guitar you can see it was babied. A bit of Gold tarnish but frets are great still and entirely gold. There is some light yellowing around the binding at the bottom of guitar, this seems to be fairly common with the original supremes. Some say it's a reaction to the case but I think it's just time.
