Tonal EvaluationThis one is especially round and full throughout its tonal range. The bass and low-mids are dense and the high-end has a massive amount of cut. Of the two acoustic L-5s, this one has a slightly darker voice.

Initially produced as an acoustic in 1922 under the direction of famed Gibson luthier Lloyd Loar, the L-5 was Gibson’s first guitar with f-holes. In the 1940s the model became the rhythm box of choice for big band players and later the standard guitar for Wes Montgomery, who would eventually receive a custom model. And it was already one of the world’s most popular guitars when Gibson first electrified the model in 1951.
