1949 Gibson L4-C

CITES Article 10 Certificate # 555323/01

A very rare guitar being the first year of offer for this cutaway version of the L4.  In absolutely superb condition with all original parts and in almost an unplayed state, it is a truly great guitar to play many disciplines on, whether it be jazz or Traveling Wilburys !!  Carved maple back and rims with an X-braced spruce top under a beautiful and typical for the period sunburst finish. It is quick, responsive and crisp with a woody undertone and lots of character.  Quick dieback with a short sustain, just what one wants with this type of guitar.  Very difficult to find and harder to find in this condition.......super.
