1947 Gibson L-7

The Gibson L-7 model was a well constructed professional grade budget friendly archtop guitar. It went through many changes from its introduction in 1933 until its retirement in the early 1970s. The L-7 had a fair amount of fancy adornments for a budget model such as a script pearl inlay, multiple layers of binding and a 17″ wide body (after 1935). The 1947 edition of the L-7 featured new closed...

1941 Gibson ES-300N / L-7 Conversion,

This is a unique instrument. It started life in 1941 as an ES-300 - with a laminated maple top and a built in pickup and controls. Sometime in the 1950s, the guitar was returned to Gibson for a solid spruce top - with no built in pickup or controls. The guitar became an L-7. The label still says ES-300. Beautiful condition with very curly sides and back. Some very light lacquer checking. ...

It is a fantastic archtop with a...

1946 Gibson L-47

This is a pretty cool old guitar. I'm a sucker for factory black Gibsons so I had to have this one even though I'm not much of an acoustic arch top guy. L-47's were down near the bottom of the Gibson line back then but were still well made and they sound pretty good. They say the good ones get played and this one has definitely been played. Newer case.
