  • Serial # A 6623 is a very nice 1951 Gibson L-5C with a great acoustic voice. This guitar is in very good original condition with some playing wear and checking on the top, the back of the headstock, and in the cutaway. Original finish is in excellent condition overall, and all parts are original except the pickguard which is a recent replacement. The original pickguard is in the case pocket and has deteriorated. The tailpiece is the early “patent applied for” Varitone tailpiece and has been buffed. Frets are original and the neck profile is nicely rounded and very playable. The guitar comes with its original Lifton brown hard case which is also in very good condition. Overall, the guitar plays very easily and sounds very good, with a fine voice that is ideal for solo or chord playing. A fine instrument from Gibson’s postwar golden era at a reasonable price!
