    1961 Gibson L-7 C Special Cherry Red Archtop Acoustic Guitar, #61599. A Super rare "One of a kind" Gibson L-7 C in superb condition! Special factory ordered in a custom color for L-7 C's. Truss rod cover is stamped "Custom". Ask around the Gibson jazz guitar circuit and most will tell you that Gibson made L-7's in either natural or sunburst. Then, to find one that has a cutaway and is stellar in condition, just adds to the interest. Take it one step further and find a Special Order Model in a custom color just adds to the excitement!

    We are pleased to offer this L-7 C in stellar condition in its original factor cherry red with it's Kalamazoo, Michigan factory hang tag. Bound body and neck, single-line Kluson tuners. No noted flaws with the exception of 3 tiny contact marks throughout. A crisp clean guitar worthy of your consideration for just about 3-4 times the price of the more common models in sunburst or natural. Very cool tweed Gretsch hard case. Condition: Excellent+
