A stunning Custom Shop “Master Model” with hand signed label by Gibson’s finest archtop Master Builder Mr. James Hutchins, and his craftsmanship REALLY shows. This thinner body L-5 sounds amazing even unplugged, and she sports ole Lonesome George's preferred 2 3/4" scale length. Please see the photos of the 2 interior labels. The woods are spectacular, as is the finish. At some point the floating pickup was rewound by Kent Armstrong- see photo. It could easily be described as mint except for some very, really minor buckle worming on the back- which is really light & difficult to see. The Gold parts are also in excellent shape with no tarnish nor wear through. The case is also in excellent condition.
There’s no fret wear and the frets are in superb condition. When played acoustically this L-5 is most impressively loud, resonant & warm & full. We’re not accustomed to hearing such a wonderful unplugged performance from L-5’s, so it’s most evident Mr. Hutchins did an outstanding job with this superb example. If you want to own & play a gorgeous playing, looking and “sounding” L-5 CT- here it is. We see many, but this one is a many cuts above the norm and is nearing 3 decades old. Still looks new!
