Hi everyone,
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,
Steve

Hi and welcome to the forum.

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!

Pip.

Thanks Retired an Pippy for the welcome.
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.

Very Sweet.
I did wonder if it was a Peerless but I'm not well-versed in archtop marques so thanks for the info.

Nice to have you and your babes here.
