Product Details

Gibson / L-5 Custom Factory Modification

L-5 announced as Gibson's first F-hole arch top guitar in 1923
The price at the time of release was more expensive than any acoustic guitar and more expensive than Martin's Style-45.
After that, the lineup as a Gibson flagship model until the announcement of SUPER400 was made, the L-5 was highly evaluated as an arch top guitar, and the later manufacturers made a pick guitar that imitated the L-5.

This unit is made in 1950 L-5
The non -cutaway 17 -inch body is probably a black to black at the Gibson factory and the neck is converted to "Super400" because of how to finish.
Along with that, the tailpiece has been changed to the SUPER400 one, and its appearance has the beauty of Les Paul Custom "Black Beauty", and the beckwinding applied in detail has further raised the dignity of the body.

In terms of sound, it is also solid compared to other arch top guitars, and it is also convinced that it is crisp and well described as crispy.
The balance of each string is very good, so you can feel a solid nuance when you stroke the tension code or fraction code.
During the 4 -beat code stroke, it will play a very important role as a rhythm instrument.

The condition of the neck and Kibe is inspected and adjusted by an acoustic guitar professional craftsman, and all parts are good.
The neck is adjusted straight and has no vibration or clogging, and the string height on the 12th fret is set to 2 mm on the 6 string side and 1.6 mm on the first string side.
It is a satisfactory vintage with both sound and aesthetics with no other large damage that has a certain crack repair history on the body side.

It is an overwhelming appearance born by the fusion of the new and old flagship model.
