Wow! I really think Gibson used some of their best woods on the prototypes they put out! This is A wonderful example of a guitar that has been played and enjoyed, but well cared for. This guitar was brought to us from a local longtime jazz musician who played it daily for many years. Consequently, there is some finish wear on the neck especially on the treble side. The guitar comes with the original signed truss rod cover but also comes with an L-5 custom truss rod cover that is currently on it. The guitar plays ridiculously nice and sounds fantastic. Comes with original case.
