You are looking at a Gibson Custom L-5 Premier Hollow Body Electric Guitar with BJB Floating Pickup Emberglow, serial number 12095002. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 3.2 oz.)

The legendary L-5 was originally born as an acoustic guitar in 1922 under the direction of renowned Gibson luthier Lloyd Loar. Today, Gibson Custom is proud to present this truly striking incarnation of this world-class Gibson archtop with the L-5 Premier.

A gorgeous deluxe archtop from the Gibson Custom Shop, the L-5 Premier is a top-shelf jazz box that's meticulously crafted with the discerning player in mind. Made with only the finest materials and all of the legendary craftsmanship you've come to expect from the Gibson Custom Shop, the L-5 Premier sports that timeless L-5 hollow body with a smooth cutaway, and features a high-quality spruce top with exquisite figured maple back and rims. Dressed in an Emberglow finish, the top and back are both adorned with classy multi-ply binding while the F-holes are bound by single-ply white binding.

Also showcasing stunning figured maple, the 3-piece neck measures a cozy .78" to .95", and carries a ebony fingerboard that houses reissue fret wire for that classic Gibson feel and playability. Catering to the premium L-5 aesthetic, the fingerboard and headstock both boast elegant pearl inlays along with multi-ply binding.

Ideal for the discriminating jazz guitarist, the Gibson Custom L-5 Premier comes fitted with a single BJB floating pickup that delivers smooth, beautiful cleans with a crisp, clear top-end and nice, warm lows. The pickup is wired through a single volume control that's mounted to the traditional-style pickguard. Top-notch gold-plated hardware rounds out this premium package, and includes an ebony-based ABR bridge, an elegant L-5 tailpiece, and a set of Schaller M6 tuning machines. Comes complete with a hardshell case and a Certificate of Authenticity.
