1907 Gibson L-1 restoration


Recommended Posts

Here's the photos of my 1907 Gibson. I have looked on the earlygibson site and found no patent info just some Factory Order number and Serial number info. This guitar's number is 5507 which I believe dates it just into 1907. In 1906 and 1907, I read that Gibson made some slotted headstock guitars without "The Gibson" logo at the top of the headstock and from some other early Gibson info I saw many pics of the fixed ebony bridges for the L1 guitars made prior to 1908. Still trying to locate patent info and any info on the fixed ebony bridge if it's even out there. I contacted Gibson and they don't have either.  Another question: Any ideas on how to get the soundboard looking any better than it currently looks without taking it to a luthier? Thanks!
