  1. I have a '54 Gibson L7CP with the original hardshell case. While the case was in storage, it got wet and mildewed the interior lining. I'd like to replace the lining with the original pink crushed velvet. Is this fabric available? Is there a close match somewhere?
  2. It is a plectrum guitar. Scale length is 26 to 27". It's a transitional instrument designed to ease the move from banjo to guitar. The bow ties are not placed like a regular guitar but for a banjo. See the marker at the 10th fret instead of the 9th. Throws me off a little. There are many ways to tune it. Old school is to tune like a banjo CGBD or DGBD, but it can be tuned to the bottom four, top four or middle four strings of the guitar. I've got it strung with the bottom four strings of a flat wound set of guitar strings, my favorite so far.
  3. First post, just wanted to show off this beauty. It's a blond 1954 L7C-P. Ordered by a local shop in '54, but never picked up and never sold. It was one of 40 guitars band instruments I sold for his estate. Check the figured back! I kept this and a '61 ES 175.
