  1. My son and I bought this guitar this past weekend. Obviously it REALLY OLD. Inside thru one F-Hole it says, N-2. Thru the other F-Hole it says L 353. I've scoured the internet and can't seem to find anything like this. Can someone please help? Have you ever seen on? What year are they from? How much are they worth? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Shane
  2. Hi All, I have what I thought was a 1940s Gibson L-48, but have had others question that based on the logo on the headstock. They suggested it might be an older L-50 from the late 1930s I thought the L-50 always had a bound fretboard, which is why I figured it was L-48. I have since found 1930s L-50s without fretboard binding, and the same logo that mine has. The logo is white in older script. Arched top and back, and Ebony nut No label or numbers anywhere, even inside up at the neck block. It has been hard to find good source of accurate info, so I am
  3. Hey everyone, I have what I believe to be a 1943 Gibson L-50 in ebony. There are several concerns I have about if its a real Gibson and what has been done to it if it is. I've included some pics of the guitar and the things that concern me. Any info would be much appreciated. First off it has binding around the F-Holes. I haven't found any models online with this feature, but finding a 1943 in ebony is another trick all together it seems. Secondly it has obviously been painted or at least the headstock has. As you can see in the pic the logo is on the original surface and the Glossy
  4. We all know that this new Epi lineup is just coming out of the oven with this headstock and the Gibson license and recognition, but, really: What about we the left-handed guitar/bass guitar players ? Where do the left-handed models had gone ? I know I'm not the only one asking about this matter but, I'd like to know what the lefties (like me) think about it at this moment?. I must confess that I'd seen videos of Summer NAMM 2020 Epiphone's booth and I think the Les Paul models Epi have develope for this year look really amazing, so I'd really love to get one and play it.
  5. hey guys i just got a 1946 L-48 and the case it came in is shot and no name on it. i am looking for a good new hard case but having a hard time finding one that fits. i hope u guys can help. thanks.
  6. Hello, all! This is a guitar owned by my girlfriend's father. From what I have been able to research, I think it may be from 1948, but I am reluctant to even say that. Any input on year or model is greatly appreciated! If I need to get better pics I can ask him. Thanks in advance!
  7. Dear fellows, I just purchased a really nice Gibson L30 in its original Geib case (see attached picture). I am using Thomastik JS110 Flatwound Extra Light Jazz Swing on my Gibson ES125 since I like low gauge. Would you also recommend them on the L30? I would also like to try it amplified. Any pickups recommendations? Preferably removable. Thank you !
  8. I’m looking for some help identifying and dating the Guitar pictured below. From what I can find, it looks to be manufactured between 1935-1941. I was able to find what appears to be the FON number, but I can’t quite make it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
