Coming soon : 1959 Hofner Senator single pickup , 1951 L-7
This 1928 Gibson L-3 represents the mid-1920s design, with a red sunburst finish, older style adjustable bridge, larger neck profile, floral engraved Waverly strip tuners, and the smaller 14" size. It has one major repair, a heel crack and sides cracks on either side of it. The tone is bright and very even from string to string. A good choice for older blues, swing, or oldtime string band music. With more recent hard case.
