This is a fine specimen of a Gibson L-3 round soundhole archtop in very good condition. It has been set up by our luthier and has nice easy action and sings when played. The voicing has a fantastic mid-range punch and excels at anything from old blues to hot swing to folk strumming. Everything on it is original save for not having it's original pickguard and a small 7" piece of replaced fingerboard binding, and otherwise no cracks! This includes a period correct case, though not the original to the instrument.
