This is without a doubt in the top 3 best sounding acoustic archtops to ever come through the shop! This thing is loud, articulate and sweet sounding. The instrument in question is a lovely 1944 L7 with a lovely cocktail of transitional features that are rarely seen together. Fleur-de-lis on the headstock, large headstock, small logo, ebony and nickel tailpiece, etc. Truly a rare gem! The guitar plays and sounds fantastic and comes with the original case which is in great shape other than tape around the handle. The guitar has one very small hairline crack on the top as well as some general wear throughout but is overall in very fine condition for its age. Thanks for looking!
