1929 Gibson L-5 Sunburst Acoustic Archtop. This classic model was conceived largely by the legendary luthier, Lloyd Loar, and is considered to be the basis for most of the high-end archtops to follow. The guitar is all original, with minor scratches and checking to the finish. Beautiful, original pearloid block inlays remain intact. Fret binding is missing at the 12th fret on the bass side. This master-piece is nearly impossible to find in any condition. It is among the finest examples I have ever seen and has the unmistakable tone that only these vintage L-5’s possess. Original hard case is included.
