I couldn't help but post my "New" vintage guitar find.
In my opinion this is the most beautiful guitar I've owned. I am terrible at photographing guitars so I'm sure it will not do it justice. The guitar is an original 1938 Gibson L5, as one of Gibson's pinnacle prewar guitars, it is entirely built up with beautiful flamed and birdseye maple. It has the ever cool original Grover Imperial tuners and a gorgeous script logo headstock.
What makes this guitar extra unique is that it appears to have been sent back to the factory in the early 60's and now sports a gold PAF in the neck position, and a early 60's style cutaway was added. The work is perfect and looks factory correct.
So now I have a one of a kind 1938-1962 Gibson L5. It's the best of both worlds in my opinion. The icing on the cake is that its also a phenomenal player!
