Gibson / L4ces James Hutchins Wine Red / 2001 / Guitar

2001 Gibson L4ces in Wine Red built under supervision, inspected and signed by the late Masterbuilder James Hutchins who spent over 45 years working at Gibson.  The Gibson L-4 archtop became jazz’s greatest rhythm instrument in the hands of six-string innovators like the virtuoso Eddie Lang in the 1920s and assured the company’s dominance of the guitar market even before the outbreak of World War I. But the L-4’s story - how it evolved from an acoustic guitar to the dynamic L-4 CES Archtop of today - is perhaps the best illustration of Gibson’s historic dedication to endlessly refining and improving instruments that are already world class. This gorgeous 2001 Gibson L-4 CES still adheres to the classic design of its namesake. The comfortable 16" wide body was crafted using a solid carved spruce top and maple back and rims. Contributing much to the guitar’s silky, lush, deep tone is the one-piece mahogany neck. It has a 24 ¾ inch scale length and is 1 11/16-inches wide at the nut. True to the model’s historic evolution, this L-4 CES has a 20 fret Ebony fretboard with pearl split parallelogram inlays and single ply white binding. It boasts the classic ES rounded profile and a headstock with vintage tulip shape tuners. The pickups are a newer '57 classic in the neck and the original PAF style humbucker in the bridge position. Condition is Very Good; the guitar as some nice patina on the hardware and a decent amount of dings, playwear and other signs of use in the finish of both the body and neck. Includes original hardshell case which also displays quite some signs of use and has a newer handle.  Specifications Model: Single Cut Hollowbody Archtop Finish: Sunburst Top Material: Solid Carved Spruce Body Material: Maple Lefty No Body Details: White body bindings, black/white top trim, bound tortoise pickguard Neck Material: Mahogany Neck Profile: ES Rounded Fingerboard Material: Ebony Fingerboard Radius: 12” Neck Details: Split Parallelogram Inlays, bound fingerboard, crown and Gibson logo headstock inlay Nutwidth: 43 mm - 1 11/16" Scale Length: 628 mm - 24 3/4" Bridge: Tune-o-matic with Ebony base Tailpiece: L4 Pickups: '57 Classic neck (replacement) PAF Style bridge Tuners: Kluson style Controls: 2 Volumes, 2 Tones, 3-way Switch.

ABOUT US

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail info@thefellowshipofacoustics.com My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
