Here is a beautiful 1978 Gibson L5ces in great shape, back in my hands again and back on the market. The previous owner/collector has ordered a custom design. The L5ces is Gibson's flagship jazz guitar and sets the standard by which all others jazz guitars are measured, it was Wes Montgomery's favorite axe. There is something special about it's deep rich sound, exceptional feel and stunning appearance that has made it the all time most sought after jazz guitar. Solid spruce top, solid maple side and back, 17" bout 3 1/2 in depth, 5 piece neck, ebony fretboard with gold hardware. This one has spent most of it's 41 years in the case. There is zero fret wear, a strap button was never added on the back until I added one. I replaced the pickup covers, the tune-o-matic bridge and several screws that had oxidized through the years. It does have some minor nicks but the binding and wood is all perfect. Here's your chance to own the real deal. If you'd been watching prices L5s just keep going up and up. Call me with questions and to order 805-460-6370.
