Gibson L-5 Acoustic Archtop Guitar, Vintage 1936
  • Super Clean & Beautiful 17" L-5
  • X Braced, Small f-holes
  • Original Except For Tuners

Product Description

A truly gorgeous early Advanced L-5, in fabulous condition. Still retaining the small unbound ? holes, short scale and trapeze tailpiece of the earlier 16" L-5's, with the "modern" 17" body and X-braces, you'd call this a transitional model. It is fully bound in multi-ply binding, including the pickguard, with incredible flamed maple and liquid-looking dark sunburst, with a sharp looking hinged trapeze tailpiece finished in sandblasted gold with the L-5 logo in gloss. Neck is a full round shape that is extremely comfortable. There is a reglued seam under the tailpiece and recent gold Waverly repro tuners, a few very minor dings, and otherwise mint and original. The tone is loud and rich, with tons of bark. Comes with its original tweed with stripes hard shell case.
