GibsonĀ® L5-S Custom '73, Cherry Burst - Sold

Here we have a rather unusual Gibson L5-S from 1973. Introduced in 1972, the Gibson L5-S was essentially a solid-body version of the popular Gibson L-5 hollowbody. Like the L-5, it features multiple binding on the single-cutaway body, neck, and headstock, and also featured an ebony fingerboard with block inlays. The headstock features a flower-pot inlay similar to the L-5 archtop and features the L-5 trapeze tailpiece (though some had stop-bar or TP-6 fine-tuning tailpieces). However, the L5-S has a thin solid body, whereas the L-5 archtop was larger in size and fully hollow. The L5-S was available in various finishes, such as ebony, cherry sunburst, and natural. Upon its introduction in 1972, the L5-S featured two low-impedance pickups, similar to those found on several Gibson Les Paul models of that period, such as the Recording model, the Signature model, the Personal model, and the Professional Model. This one is in nice overall condition and plays well. Includes the original hardshell case.
