Long time guitar player here. Classical, acoustic and jazz. When I started taking lessons Freshman year in High School (54 years ago!), my teacher had a blond L5 CES Gibson. I've always had in my mind that somewhere in my stable I would have to pick up one of these. I finally pulled the trigger today and have a blonde 2002 L5CES on the way. It appears to be in great condition. I expect I will have multiple questions. Looking forward to bonding with you guys. Gibson is an American icon. I'm hoping that their business rebounds.

The rest of my guitars:

2015 Greenfield G1 - Spruce / Brazilian Rosewood
Comins Orchestra Spruce / Maple 16 inch Archtop


and now - 2002 Gibson L5 CES
2017 Comins Orchestra 16"
2002 Gibson L5
