Gibson L-48 Archtop sunburst 1951

A Gibson L-48 from 1951-1952. Solid Spruce top, Solid Mahogany sides and Solid Maple back. Beautiful dry sound with great balance and projection, lovely guitar for the jazzy rhythm stuff and even for improvisation, the sound you would expect from a nicely matured vintage Gibson Archtop. This one plays unexpectedly well, nice low action and it has a playfully feel to it. It is in original condition, except for the tuners, which have been replaced for the same style tuners (3-on-a-plate), and we think that it has a newer tailpiece, it is the right style tailpiece but it looks extremely clean. The bridge and saddle are original Rosewood pieces and the Rosewood fretboard is in almost perfect condition, practically no wear. It has had a refret already, and those frets are still in great condition. 

This L-48 is in excellent condition, it has lovely looking craquele and a nicely weathered sunburst finish. We've noticed that the binding between the back and side, treble side, at the waist, has been reglued, but this was done professionally and it is stable, so structurally it is in great condition.
