    Description

    1930s Gibson L-4 Archtop Acoustic Guitar Missing pickguard but screws are still in place. Significant scratches and wear to the finish with weather checking throughout. 8" back crack that has movement. Neck is straight. Action is currently high but there is still plenty of room for bridge adjustment. 2" area of paint specks on the bass side lower bout. Tailpiece appears to be original. Grover tuners appear to be older replacements but no extra holes are visible. Would benefit from a professional restoration. Hard case included. Condition: Fair.
