    Description

    Circa 1970-1974 Gibson L-5CES Sunburst Archtop Electric Guitar, Serial # 402397. Very clean early 70's L-5 CES with no volute. All original condition except for rubber piece around the toggle switch, which has been replaced. The original is in the case. The pickguard is starting to crystallize as they sometimes do. Light but normal checking is present as well as a few minor dings and scuffs. Overall this is a beautiful instrument and in good playing condition. This guitar should be setup to your individual taste. Original hard case included. Condition: Excellent.
