1927 Gibson L-5

$21,500
Rare Master Model ,dot neck L-5. The guitar is original with no cracks but does show noticeable honest playing wear. The tone and volume are what one hopes for in an early 16" L-5, full and warm with a smooth midrange and surprising bass for an archtop, but not at the expense of a clear treble. the guitar has been refretted , has repro tuners ( originals in the case) and a reproduction pickguard....

1929 Gibson L-5

$16,500
One of the most important guitars of the 20th Century, the early 16" L-5 is a good example of the first being the best and all that came later going down hill. Although that's certainly not a universally held opinion, it is defensible. Shortly after this guitar was made, the model's bracing was beefed up: the so-called "kerfed bracing", in which they were cut to allow easier fitting to the carved...

1958 Kay Barney Kessel Jazz Special

$3,895
As if a Gibson L-5, mated with a 50's toaster oven, right? You can't possibly describe a Kay Barney without mentioning the Kelvinator headstock. You may not know this, but you didn't see this beyond 1960. The Plexiglas headstock overlay, that is. As if the engineers for this model ate mushrooms while watching "Forbidden Planet." You remember that movie right? 'The Tempest' in outer space. Headed...

2003 Gibson L-5 Lee Ritenour

$6,295
In 1958 TV personality George Gobel approached Gibson with a new concept for the venerable L-5: slim the body depth by almost an inch, and reduce the scale to 24 3/4". (And paint it cherry red, which looked just dandy on black and white screens.) Gibson made only 43 George Gobel L-5s until the model was discontinued in 1961, making surviving specimens instant collector's items. Over four decades...

1923 Gibson L-4
