  1. Hey all!

    A guy I know is selling this L=5. He has no specific info about the guitar other than "it is old". I like the guitar and want to make him an offer but I have my doubts as to it's authenticity. I've never seenan L-5 with the toggle on the upper, bass side of the guitar. every single one pictured on the internet has the toggle on the lower, treble side. anyone have any input?


  2. In glad I came on here. this guitar belongs to a buddy of mine who bought believing it is an L5. You guys are bringing up some great points, i.e. the bottom of the fretboard, the headstock inlay, etc. Im going to take a ride over to him soon, he is about 2 hours away and perhaps get an expert to look at it. He wants to sell it and Im interested but Im skeptical. 


    If anyone else has any input please feel free. This will take time. We have Hurricane Dorian to deal with first! Thanks again all!

    I know a lot of people are reluctant to do this, why I do not know. I suggest calling Gibson Customer Service with the serial number and they can tell you exactly what model that guitar is and be able to answer a few other questions you may have. The call is toll free.

    Thanks Big Bill......I will do that
