It's one of the many Gibsons in which the body was made in '28, and the neck a couple years later. When I got it, it had a replaced fingerboard that was extra thick. We took it down to standard depth, giving the neck one of the nicest shapes of all the 16-inch L-5s. We removed a dark overspray, and thus now has a shine on the finish. There's one area on the back where the original stain was worn and is now covered with finish. It's a very sweet sounding guitar with a clear, singing treble. Maybe not the loudest L-5, but it hasn't been played in years. I've been doing my best to help it get there, but only have so much time. It's hard work, but someone has to do it!
