My name is Steve an im from Newcastle upon Tyne in the uk.
I have been playing guitar on an off for about 25 years.
This week I finally got my first Gibson guitar.
It's a 1979 L6-S deluxe in natural with a rosewood board . She seems quite original an in good nick..
Sounds really nice an plays better than I thought..
Full report an strip down with pics coming when due.
Hope to add this wonderful site.
Thanks for looking everyone,

Nice pair of guitars you have!
There are a few L6 owners hereabouts - both of the original Norlins and also the recent version - who regularly sing their charges' praises.
They really are underrated instruments.
Nice jazz-box, too! What make/model is she?
Hope you have fun here!

Yeah I got both together in a swap deal with me thinning out my heard out,(5 of mine cheapies out 2 in)..
The jazzer is a Peavey Rockingham pippy. Its Chinese an was built off the gretsch g3131 with headstock change plus a few other models (peerless is another)..
It sounds an plays great.. Thinking of modding it at a latter date but for now I'm impressed with her..
I'm have a great time looking around at some of the post on replies an think I'm going to love this site.
Thanks for the welcome again.
