This auction is for one "vintage sunburst" (also known as "tobacco sunburst") Gibson L-5 Custom solid-body guitar, including it's original hardshell case. Though produced through the early 1900's, the solid-bodies (like this) were not manufactured untill the 70's -- this guitar was made in 1977. The serial # is 06128549. I have verrified the date of production from Gibson, but I am sure they would be more than happy to reiterate it if you'd like to contact them at gibson.com or 1-800-4GIBSON. This guitar was purchased by my Father in the 70's, and has only left his possession to enter my own. He kept it in what I find to be very excellent condition, though as you can see: there are two small pocks by the the treble/volume dials, one small ding near the top front of the body, and the tuning pegs have been altered [When speaking with an expert on the subject, I was told that such "customizations" were a large thing in the 70's and 80's. Though I never did ask my Father why he did it, I know it was NOT due to any damage done to the headstock, nor has it altered anything in a negative fashion.] As I said, the guitar is a "vintage sunburst," and has a pearl inlay on the headstock/fretboard. Though you may not be familiar with this fact, the inlay of full rectangles (like so) is something only Gibson Custom's have -- otherwise, the frets would have small "dots." The outside rim of the guitar is a vanilla-white lacing. With this guitar, I will include a Gibson strap and the set of strings which are on it as well as (of course) the original case (pictured). Not only are you bidding on an amazing guitar (one of the best I've played), but an investment which will continue to gain value and collectibility for years to come.
