Uncirculated Gibson L-5 serial number 92500 with original sunburst finish in excellent playing condition. I acquired this family heirloom from northern California. It has been well preserved in its original tweed case.
Factory order number is 177A-10 is visible inside f hole. This guitar is one of 56 Advanced L-5s shipped in 1935. The tag inside the case shows it was originally sold at Fife Nichols in Los Angeles-Hollywood, California.
Details include Gibson script logo, flowerpot inlay, 20 fret fingerboard with block inlays, Grover pat-pend tuners.
The original sunburst is vibrant and shows beautiful maple flame on back. The gold hardware has perfect 88 year old patina.
A full refret was given upon its arrival. One crack under the pickguard was stabilized. The pickguard was replaced with a high quality reproduction (original pickguard included). Part of the bridge and one adjustment wheel has been replaced. It now has a clean bill of health and plays beautifully.
