L-5

This L5 features parallel bracing rather than 'X' bracing, they came both ways that year.  It is a fine player with the deep dark sound that is hoped for from this period.  It has been played, but is in very good shape, one tight short hairline crack in back and missing the easily replaceable pickguard, most of those nitrocellulose pickguards from that period disintegrate.    Really a great sounding guitar, comes with a nice '50's Gibson brown case.
