Item up for auction is a Gibson L-6S Custom, solid body electric guitar. Rare Tobacco Sunburst Finish, built it appears in 1975, serial number dating before 1977 is very difficult. According to vintageguitars.org only 151 Tobacco Sunburst L-6S Custom guitars were built in 1975 and only 651 in all production years in total. The guitar has a set maple neck, with ebony fingerboard, 24 frets and dot markers. The Guitar features two chrome-covered super humbucker pickups with volume, midrange and 'treble roll-off' controls (The treble control is broken and knob is missing). 6 position pickup selector switch. Wide-travel tune-o-matic bridge, with stop-bar tailpiece. There is an old repair to the headstock, not unusual with Gibson guitars. (see photo) The tuners are original Gibson. The clear lacquer has a few bad places due to some deteriorated foam rubber in the hard shell case, (case included with the guitar, bad foam rubber has been removed).
Notable L-6S players include Keith Richards (Rolling Stones), Carlos Santana, Al di Meola, Lady Bo (Bo Diddley), Johnny Borrell (Razorlite).
This is the perfect guitar for someone looking for a restoration project.
