  • Description

    Vintage Gibson 1979 Gibson L5CES in sunburst. This guitar is in very good playing shape. Some cosmetic depressions and dings, but nothing major.  A few small dings go down through the finish.  The gold hardware has started to green from the pick guard gassing which is typical. The pickguard has also warped with age. The ebony bridge is in great shape and nicely aged. Vintage knobs and neck volute round out the vintage '70s appointments.

    The guitar itself plays great! A nice low action, no buzzing throughout. The neck is on the slimmer side for a L5. Still comfortable, but certainly not a baseball bat. The ebony fingerboard is true, and free from blemish. Looks and plays fantastic. Frets have a little wear in the open position, but still ring true, and it will be some time before they need to be addressed.

    If you are looking for a classic Jazz box at a great price, a Vintage '70s Gibson is much more affordable than a '60s or late '50s. And it still holds its own with the best of solid archtop guitars. Great for all types of music, but the L-5CES is an absolute staple and bar setter for Jazz players. Includes original hardshell case.
