"The Gibson" .. Vintage L4?

It appears to be an early Gibson L-3 Archtop. The rings around the soundhole are wood and solid strips (as opposed to some intricate design). In addition, it holds the old lyre style Gibson label, which was used up until 1910, so you appear to have a very early model. Also, the Serial Number is different from the FON. The serial number would put it between 1906 and 1907. For more information, you can find some here:
