Gibson L-75 Arch Top Guitar 1934

Photo for Ad 132101

In the 1930s Gibson brought out several innovative models to cover the entire spectrum of potential guitar playing customers. The rarely seen L-75 was at the forefront of quality, affordable instruments that abounded in a market hungry for arch top guitars during the swing band era. The L-75 has an elegant peg head inlay and plain dots on its elevated rosewood fretboard. The guitar featured a carved spruce top as did all the Gibson arch tops of the period. The flat mahogany back, as well as the top is finished in a Cremona sunburst.
This L-75 is in superb playing condition, with some wear near the treble f hole, and what appears to be 2 very short (repaired) surface cracks in the back, lower bout. It has a beautiful tone with great projection and volume, capable of cutting through any combo and providing punch to the rhythm section.
$2450 with original hard shell case
