Here is a beautiful Gibson L-5CESN from 1960. This guitar is as cool as it gets, with carved spruce top and real Gold PAF humbuckers. The original baritone circuit has been removed, but this guitar sounds heavenly. The neck is thinner than most others, if you are into more modern feeling necks you will feel right at home! All set up by our in-house luthiers and meticulously looked over and researched, this guitar is all good to go!
