Description

This is a beautiful sounding/playing early 1929 Gibson L5 in good condition. It has several crack repairs on the top, back and sides, has been refinished, had a neck reset in the mid-1980s, and possibly refretted as well. At one point in its life, it had a gold DeArmond pickup (which is long gone) mounted on the neck and had a 1/4" input jack hole filled and finished over in the lower bass-side bout. It also has replacement gold Waverly machines, a replacement gold ES-175-style tailpiece, and a replacement bridge & pickguard. It has its original tweed case w/cover and a modern Harptone archtop case. As a bonus, in the case there is a an old band photo of the guitar's original owner holding the guitar with the rest of the band, which includes a young accordian player named Lawrence Welk.
