1960 Gibson L-5 CES
1960 Gibson L-5 CES. This top-of-the line archtop is an amazing piece built during one of Gibson’s golden eras! Rare Natural finish that beautifully showcases the solid carved Spruce top and flamed Maple back and sides. A fast player with a slimmer 60’s profile neck. Very good condition with some normal wear including heavy checking, wear on the gold plating and small cosmetic dings. Filled strap button hole hear the neck joint and the bridge pickup was replaced with a vintage Gibson Pat# pickups. Otherwise, all original. The neck pickup is the original PAF and both sound fantastic with a rich, open sound that really lets the natural tone of the wood shine through. A holy grail Jazz guitar! Includes original hardshell case.
