I've had this old gal for a while. It's a The Gibson model L1. The label is there but I can't make out the serial, and the fon on the neck block is 11119 making it a 1917 model as 1917 started with 11000 fon. I bought the guitar a while back, and have decide to sell it. It's all there except for 1 endpin, tuners( originals in case but 1 button is missing) there are no extra holes from the klusons being put on. The top and sides have been oversprayed a million years ago, the back and neck are original finish.
The sides and back have had a few small cracks glued up professionally( also a long time ago). Heck this guitar is 100 years old. I don t have a pickguard for it . The bridge has never been cut down. The guitar needs a good set up, as the action is high, but the neck is straight as an arrow, and huge, and I mean huge. The frets are good too, and the tone is killer, as only old wood can do. This is a rare old gal, and someone will be very happy to be its new caretaker. The case is old, but I believe it to be a period correct Martin case. It's old, but in nice shape. Someone will be happy with this guitar as it's a very nice vintage Gibson.
I've priced it to sell as these even refined in worst shape sell for a bit more.
$1495.00 shipped.

A few interested parties, but still here for now.
Guys in worst shape, these are going for 1800. This is a great deal on this one.
