Gibson L-4 Acoustic Roundhole Archtop Guitar, Vintage 1937

  • Not Your Typical Archtop: Wonderful Fingerstyle Guitar
  • Hand Carver Spruce & Maple
  • Full Custom Setup

Product Description

A rare round-hole 16" archtop from Eric's personal collection. After '34 all the L-4s had ?-holes, except in '37 Gibson for some reason decided to offer some custom L-4s with round-holes. As a fingerstyle player, Eric has come to prize these round-hole archtops because of the crossover nature of the L-5 qualities of projection and sweet clarity and the roundhole qualities of deeper bass and openness. Comes from one of Gibson's most artful periods, with very tasty Lucas-style decoration: fretboard inlays, bound peghead with inlaid fleur-de-lies and old-style script logo.
