I recently bought, what I believe is a L-30 sunburst, at least what the sellerís descripition told me. I understand from what Iíve read online that the L-30 and L-37 are nearly identical.
Thereís no label inside the body or serial number on the back of the headstock, but thereís a stamp with 3 numbers followed by a letter ***F. And from what Iíve read is the F and FA-labeled guitars made in 1940.
Hope to find out which model and what year.

Thank you helpy helpers!

Greetings from Sweden

There's not a lot of analysis we can do without photos, but this website has a reasonably detailed history of Gibson archtops:
