This is a 1957 Gibson L-50 Archtop jazz guitar that someone has added P-90 pickups. This particular model does not have an elevated finger fingerboard like many similar models from this era. The headstock is checkered where the lacquer has aged. The binding has yellowed with age and has a few minor blemishes where it may have been dropped and the control knobs are missing. The side of the guitar has a small drilled hole where there was a pickguard at one time. In addition, the side of the guitar has several dings where it looks as if it may not have been stored in a case.
Offers always welcome. Thanks for looking!
