Gibson L5-s (1977, Bourbon Sunburst)

Here one of the best of my small collection of Gibson L5-s, The L-5s is as far as I know a Bill Lawrence co-designed solid body version of the Gibson L5 semiacoustic Guitar. Flattish body, kinda Les Paulish, slightly arched maple top with ebony. Fairly flat guitar, and apart from the double sided binding and the Ebony fretboard with real abalone, it’s quite similar to the Gibson L6-s, but less flat and contoured. Even the cavity backplate is made out of the wood. Originally designed as jazz/fusion guitar and kitted out with low impedance pick ups, laterally it came with standard humbuckers. This guitar packs a punch and is cool to look at also. Guitar lives in its In it’s Case. The dimensions are similar to the Gibson Les Paul Recording.
