Gibson L-5S Cherry Sunburst 1978

Product Description

Check out this absolute ripper of a guitar.

A very rare Gibson L5, arguably the most elegant hand made solid-body Gibson offered at the time, it was also the most expensive solid-body and still fetches huge prices, when you can find one. The craftsmanship and binding on this guitar is insane. 

Made at the Kalamazoo Plant, MI, USA on November 13th, 1978.

It features a beautiful thin Maple body, Maple neck with an Ebony Fretboard, 12” radius fingerboard with Jumbo frets and abalone block inlays. It also has gold reflector knobs, and gold hardware. It comes with a stop tailpiece that the previous owner purchased - some people prefer those to the originals. 

Overall this guitar is in excellent condition, with only a few typical marks for a guitar of this vintage.

The only modifications made to this one is Grover tuners were installed some time ago and at some point, again I would suggest a long time ago, it had mini switches installed to provide series/parallel sounds, which gives it added tonal options.

Other than that it is all original and even comes with its original hardshell case, which according to the forums I have read are rarer than the guitars themselves. 

There are not many of these around and the ones that are for sale on reverb are well over $10k delivered to Australia. 

Come and check this one out for yourself.
