GIBSON CUSTOM SHOP L4/L5 ACOUSTIC TIGERBURST (2002) SERIAL # 21442001 Near Mint Condition. This guitar was custom ordered in 2001 when the Gibson Custom Shop was still building one of a kind special orders. It was originally conceived, and ordered by world renowned jazz guitarist Jim Fox. It is a premium solid wood fully carved arch-top featuring superlative solid tiger striped maple for the back and sides. The back is spectacular book-matched highly flamed maple. The body is modeled on a 1934 L5 ( 16' lower bout ) and the guitar is otherwise appointed as a modern L4 . Every aspect of the guitar was built using the highest quality materials available, and it shows in the final product. It is a one of a kind work of art. The bridge is ingenius and features a unique compensated design. The L5 tail piece is also uniquely designed and features a carved ebony center-block. the pearl used for the inlays was chosen for its color. The hardware is heavier gold-plating than stock Gibson instruments. The neck is one piece Mahogany and has a great C shaped profile, but not too clubby. Nut Width: 1 and 11/16 ' Scale: 24.875. The guitar has excellent tone and volume. My inquiries at the Gibson Custom Shop revealed that the guitar had a rec. retail price of well over $10,000, and was ordered through Guitar Center in Hollywood California . The guitar comes with two different certificates of authenticity from Gibson. O.H.S.C. Gibson Custom Shop fitted case.
