Thats a great looking guitar...nice catch !

I must be overlooking something, but I cant find the soundlink referred to of Doug playing this guitar, and I would love to hear him playing it. Thanks and sorry.

I bought this one as a 1923 L-3:

The L-3 has a fancy floral inlay on the peghead and three inlaid rings around the sound hole. The L-4 has a larger body, 12 frets clear of the body, an oval sound hole with diamond pattern inlays in the middle ring.
