super 400

The band Super400 was formed by long time friends Kenny Hohman (guitar and vocals) and Joe Daley (drums) and played in various incarnations throughout New York City and Woodstock. The lineup would not be finalized until the addition of bassist Lori Friday in February 1996.

The band of Super400 was signed to Island Records and released their self-titled debut on July 13, 1998 on the Island/Trade 2 label. In December 1998 Seagram purchased Island Records and many of their lesser known bands including Super 400 were released from their roster.

Super 400 continued to play and record, self releasing Blast the Message (October 1, 2004), Live 05 (November 26, 2005), 3 And The Beast (April 21, 2007) and Sweet Fist (September 15, 2009).

Super 400 is a “taper friendly” band, encouraging the recording and free trading of their live shows.

Super 400 was honored by their hometown of Troy, New York, when Mayor Harry Tutunjian declared February 25, 2006 “Super 400 Day in Troy”.In September 2009, Super 400 released a music video for the song Flashlight, the first single from Sweet Fist.NIce Gibson Super 400! You din’t see these come up that often. 100% original other than added Bigsby. Original tailpiece included. Nice wide neck profile with a nut width of 1 11/16ts. Frets are like new and have plenty of life left. Neck is nice and straight, guitar plays like a dream! Very minor play wear.

Exc(-) condition. Beautiful look and feel of gibson super 400 occasion. This guitar has been played faithfully for its life by one of Montana’s foremost jazz musicians. Everything is original except the finish. The guitar was sent to Gibson in about 1969/70 for total re-finish. The finish is great and it is hard to tell it was a re-finish job… The sunburst is just beautiful. Binding is showing some shrinkage inside cutaway at the juncture of back and side.

Original wiring harness, Alnico V pickups, knobs and hardware. Figured Maple back, sides and neck, with Spruce top. As with all Super 400’s, it has multiple bindings everywhere – top, back, fingerboard, headstock, f-holes and pickguard. There aren’t many dings on this guitar, just a few sprinkled here and there. There is one compression mark in the Spruce top between bass-side f-hole, tailpiece and bridge. This mark was probably why the guitar was refinished – it is under the 1969 re-finish. The set-up is great and the guitar sounds like a true champion.

Super 400 shop


The Gibson Super 400 is an archtop guitar, “the biggest, fanciest, and most expensive archtop ever built,” and a highly influential model guitar which inspired many other guitar makers (including Elmber Stromberg and John D’Angelico).[1] It was first sold in 1934 and named for its $400 price.

The Super 400 was the largest guitar that the Gibson Guitar Corporation had produced. Until 1939, it had a hand-engraved tailpiece and a hand-engraved finger rest support. During the very early production stock the truss rod cover had engraved “L5 Super”; on later guitars this was changed to “Super 400”.

In 1939 the guitar was changed. The upper bout was enlarged, and the hand-engraved tailpiece was replaced with the one fitted to the current Super 400s. The f-holes were enlarged, and a cutaway option was available. This was called the Super 400P (for Premiere), later changed to C for Cutaway.

During the 1950s, Gibson released the Super 400 CES. This had a slightly thicker top to reduce feedback, two P-90 pickups, and individual tone and volume controls, along with a three-way toggle switch. Later the P-90 pickups were replaced with Alnico V pickups, then in 1957, humbucking pickups.

There have been variations in the form of limited edition custom models. In 2000 Gibson offered the Super 400 with a Charlie Christian pickup. The Super 400 is still available today, with two humbucker pickups.[2] The full acoustic version is not available.

The 1963 Gibson Super 400 CES of Scotty Moore played an important role in Elvis Presley’s stage performance, the ’68 Comeback Special.
