1923 Gibson L-3

The L-3 was Gibson's fanciest small-body guitar at the time this instrument was built, and featured a beautiful rubbed Cremona sunburst, herringbone and celluloid rosette and intricate headstock inlay. With a body width of 13.5” this L-3 is significantly smaller than Gibson's 16” L4 and L5 models, and has a string balance that favours mids and upper mids over the lower frequencies that the larger guitars push out. As a result, this L-3 is well suited to playing a lead role in old-time music thanks to its excellent cut and placement within a mix. Keeping the back off your belly and allowing it to vibrate freely adds a cool hollowness in the guitar's low-end that gives a bit of a Django-esque hop to the tone of the bass strings.

 

This is a great "players grade" at a great price! Hardshell case included.
