Incredibly rare first year Gibson L5-S model featuring the models initial original specs. The single-cut body features a 13.5" lower bout, with a carved maple top and contoured back; features two large oblong low-impedance pickups with gold plated metal covers, large rectangular tune-o-matic, and a gorgeous large L-5 style plate tailpiece w/ silver insert, large maple control cavity cover; some buckle rash, scratches, and cosmetic wear, but no repairs. The five piece neck has a bound ebony fingerboard w/ 24-3/4" scale length; beautiful abalone block inlay on fretboard w/ flowerpot on the peghead face; all hardware is gold plated; 1-11/16 nut width; all hardwear is gold plated; some minor cosmetic wear, a few nicks and dings, but this is a fantastic one-owner guitar. Comes with a soft shell case.
