L5 Reissue?

Recommended Posts

Looks VERY dodgy to me; definitely NOT an L-5, especially not a '1948 re-issue' (if there is such a thing) - most 1948 L-5s did not have a cutaway, though some did.

The tailpiece is not an original L-5 tailpiece and the fretboard and headstock inlays are completely wrong, the cutaway too.

Also the f-holes don't look right and are not bound. The 2nd pic in the ad is of a totally different guitar - compare the sides and that cutaway!


Don't know if you will be able to see this but I googled 1948 L-5 reissue -




No mention of any reissues. Here is a 1948 one with cutaway -
