1915 GIBSON L3 ACOUSTIC GUITAR
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-09-09)
Price : US $1,500.
A really rare piece of Gibson history. The label is a bit worn but I believe it is a 1915 L3 as it has the Gibson Mandolin Guitar Co. paper label on the inside with serial 24xxx. It still plays but could use some love as expected for a guitar this old. It has scratches and dings and some cracking. I have set the reserve with this in mind. These don't come along every day, the beautiful wood is almost 100 years old!
This guitar is actually is very playable and looks to have very usable original frets. The tone is very warm and resonant and the neck is a very comfortable fat v shape. I am told that it does not have the original bridge.
At some point there have been some repairs done to the instrument but it looks like a very long time ago. The ''wing'' of the headstock looks to have been re-attatched a very long time ago. Again this is a guitar in need of some repair but is very functional and very old. I have set the reserve with the need for repair in mind.
Check my feedback and other auctions! I have a very rare Brazilian 59 Gibson Les Paul Reissue I will be re-listing soon.
