Gibson L5 CES

Made in USA

Serial Number 92369009

The Gibson L-5 CES is one of the most iconic guitars on the market today.  Used by some of the biggest jazz musicians in the World, the L-5  harnesses the combined sounds of the smooth electric Gibson signature tones and the warm acoustic sounds you would expect from a handcrafted Gibson jazz arch top guitar.

The L-5 CES Gibson is often very difficult to find due to the low quantities available of the signature guitar. The build time for a guitar of this caliber is longer than usual and getting your hands on your own can be a little tricky!

However, despite this, the guitar is well known for its vintage feel with its comfortable neck made from maple walnut wood allowing guitarists to move up and down the fret with ease, making the L-5 an easy choice when it comes to choosing an electro-acoustic guitar.

This example dates from September 1999 and is in excellent condition. No dings, dents, some very minor and fine checking. The guitar has seen very minimal use and only used in the studio, never gigged. The frets on the guitar were very lightly fret dressed here in the workshop (12th Fret Authorised Gibson Service Centre) and play out perfectly. Super intonation, great feel and tension in the neck. Such lovely tones unplugged as well as plugged in, great bottom end, superb highs! Truly a masterpiece.

Please feel free to email or call if you wish to try the guitar or if there’s anything questions at all.
