Condition of Instrument

This sweet L-5C is in good condition for its age! There are dings and checking all over the guitar that give it dreamy vintage looks. The frets are original, though they have tons of wear. The pickup is original, too, but has been altered with a new knob. This lovely L-5C only had one owner, and this model was only made for four years, so its a fine example of a rare vintage Gibson guitar! It includes its original hardshell case, which shows some wear but is fully functional.
