This is an absolute beauty a vintage 1960 Gibson L5-C Acoustic Archtop. Just a magnificent instrument. Unbelievable playability. Action is low like an electric and doesn't buzz. All notes play loud and clear. The volume on this is great for an acoustic archtop. Tone is very well balanced and just sounds beautiful. This is sound that you can only get from a vintage instrument.
Natural finish is clean but chequed throughout. Very nice considering its age. A couple of small dings on the sides. Most on the lower bottom treble side bout with a couple on the bass side as well. Top is clean with some dings. There are two noticeable on either side of the tailpiece. A couple of smaller less noticeable ones scattered about. The arched back shows some buckle rash but nothing through the finish. Hardware is all original. Tailpiece shows some wear but the engraving is still visible. Tuners are original and in excellent condition.
The pickguard is original. It has another piece of plastic on the back along the top edge for reinforcement and where the bracket mounts to the body, there is an extra hole. It may just be a changed bracket. Neck is straight and in excellent condition and has a great feel to it. Frets are in great shape with even moderate wear. No grooves.
