Gibson L48 / L-48 / L50 / L-50 ’51-’52 – Rare Solid Carved Top, Cremona Sunburst

$1,005.63

This is one of the rare Gibson L-48’s with carved solid spruce top. From around ’51 or ’52, essentially it is a solid carved spruce L-50 with a less fancy L-48 neck. Exceptionally fine condition. Neck perfectly straight, plays great. Big brilliant booming sound, like most early 16″ Gibson archtops (20’s L-5, etc). Faux lizard skin hard case, also great shape, included.

See my perfect rating. USA continental 48 only. Prefer FedEx Ground Home Delivery, but I can certainly use a different shipper if you prefer. Local tryout and pickup always welcome. If making an offer, please include zip code. Thanks for looking!

ps (edit) – The reason for the diagonal placement of the bridge in some pics is only because I put new strings on it and didn’t adjust the placement until after the pics. (See the string dangling on the headstock.) The intonation is perfect after moving it.
