Price : US $870.00
This is an excellent condition Gibson L-50 Guitar. When I purchased it, I was told it was made in 1949, but I have no way of verifying that as I can see no serial number or label anywhere on the guitar. I am not an expert on archtop guitars. The truth is, I know rather little about them. The guitar sounds and plays great. I feel it is in better condition than some of the pictures show. I believe the tuning machines are original, but they are old and fragile. A couple have started to crumble because of age, so the buttons will probably need to be replaced. I have no way of knowing if the pickguard or its attachment hardware is original. I do believe the tailpiece has been changed. There are a couple of filled holes on the bottom of the guitar where a different tailpiece was probably once attached. The original finish has the normal checking that Gibson Guitars from this period almost always have. I will put the guitar in a chipboard case for shipping purposes. Check my feedback and bid with confidence!
