  1. 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 trying here. Any info is appreciated.
  2. 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 paint around it is elevated. hmmmmm And 3rd I notice vertical lines in the finishes of the few ebony archtops I've seen but these seem more pronouced. And wehen i removed the pick guard it looks like a patched hole or....well I don't know wtf it could have been.....
