  • This is a very rare Gibson L-5CES wraparound tailpiece from the early 1950s, very similar to the ES-295 tailpiece that came later as weil as the earliest Les Paul tailpiece. “L5” is engraved on the center plate, and “pat. pending” is embossed on the body attachment piece. It is made of brass that is gold-plated, and has the wrap-over bridge/bar like the LP and ES-295. Plating is somewhat worn, but it doesn’t appear to have been used on a guitar. Very rare, and very cool vintage Gibson tailpiece.
