This Gibson L5-S is a solid-body electric guitar model produced by the Gibson Guitar Corporation.
The L5-S was inspired by the popular Gibson L-5 hollow body. Like the L-5, it features multiple binding on the single-cutaway body, neck, and headstock, and also features an ebony fingerboard with block inlays.
The headstock proudly displays a flower-pot inlay similar to the L-5 arch top.
This guitar is in awesome shape and has been set up on a PLEK machine so it plays incredible.
