This guitar was in the same family for 50 years. It was passed on from uncle to nephew who now needs to sell this Gibson L-5 vintage hollowbody jazz guitar. Shows signs of age wear but in overall it is truly in great shape. Plays and sounds fantastic. Original case. Here is a description from top to bottom. Headstock in great condition and machine heads have been changed, but original ones are in the case in a baggy. The nut is perfect and the frets and fingerboard show no wear. I suspect this aspect may have been serviced by the comparitively worn back of the neck and the fact that the neck binding is whiter than the body binding. Neck does not appear to have been reset or any other major work done. In fact, the bridge and tailpiece are original and this guitar is ready to play. It sounds amazing as you can well imagine. The binding is tight and the overall finish is about a B- but with some TLC could move up a grade.
The original hardshell case is in decently sturdy but worn condition. The bottom latch is deformed from someone setting the case down before it was latched. Guitar serial number is A210 according to the original mfctr sticker inside. Please feel free to ask all questions or come by for a personal inspection. Thanks and good luck on this great item. Selling as-is, but of course your satisfaction is my goal. Sincerely, mike carey
