A level above the L-7, with gold-plated parts and more finely carved top, this represents a super bargain among vintage Gibson archtop cutaways. The tuners have been replaced, and possibly the pickguard, and it's been played. There is a repaired crack below the bass-side 'f'-hole about 1-1'2" long and one above the treble-side 'f'-hole, about 3/8" long. Both are very stable. Otherwise it's a gorgeous jazz box, great set up and sounding super-fine.
