Rare Vintage Gibson 1943 L-50 Arch-Top Guitar w/Gig Bag
Specs: 16 1/8” wide lower bout Arch-top, arched back.
Identifier as a 1943: (Wartime) L-50: During WWII, Gibson:
Substituted a wood crosspiece on the tailpiece (to save metal)
Added on-a-plate tuners
Substituted painted or decal 'Gibson' logo
However, this guitar is an example of an early ’43 model, as of the 3 changes, the headstock is inlaid mother of pearl, not paint or a sticker. Additionally, the tuners are individual.
Woods: The Carved Solid Spruce Top has been refinished but not back or sides. Back is solid book-matched carved flame-maple. Sides are solid maple. The guitar sounds great and the refinish work on the top was done professionally.
History: The Gibson L-50 Arch-Top was introduced in 1932 and discontinued in 1971.
