1952 Gibson L-4C Natural

1952 Gibson L-4C Natural

Gibson’s best-kept secret of the 1950s. Beats me why they made so few of them though I suspect it was because their ES-175 of the day, despite its plywood top, had a pickup in it and well, you know, acoustic arch-tops were becoming kinda passé by then. The L-4C has all the same dimensions and woods as the ES-175 of the day, BUT, and it's a big BUT, it has a carved solid spruce top. Brings it more into the realm of a vastly less expensive L-5C or  L-7C, and it was never easy for a working musician to come up with the dough for the fancy stuff. So: maple back and sides, solid spruce top, mahogany neck (for the best balance), Brazilian rosewood fingerboard and bridge, and that ever-so-cool Gibson-only triple-parallelogram nickel-plated tailpiece. Original Kluson tuners, original fine frets, original pickguard, topped off by its original brown Gibson hard shell case. You’re not likely to find another like it and certainly not nearly this nice. All set up right here and ready to go. Wes, Jim Hall, Kenny Burrell, here we come. $4995 w/ohsc
