Gibson vintage L48 RE-Re-re worked Archtop Acoustic Guitar
sorry this item sold 12-2016

This is a used guitar, and it specs pretty close to an L48 Gibson, and comparing with a 1958 one I used to have, it looks like an L48. Combine that with the care given to mark/tape off the logo on the headstock, it looks correct, finish checking and all. Fret markers and neck and truss rod cover and dimensions, etc., lead me to believe this is an L48 - that's my story and I'm sticking to it. There is an extra hole seen on back of headstock below the tuning machines. I have concluded, looking at the layout of the machines, they were put back on the wrong side first, and screws put on, and then they realized they had done so, and flipping them to the correct side, left the holes you see a they machines extend at one end further than at the other end. So I'll leave it up to the world of experts to share reasons why they may think this may not be an L48, but till I get some real evidence, I'll stick to my story. If you note pictures 11 & 12, well I couldn't resist. I was turning the guitar several directions inspecting it, when out rolls this but, who gathered a little paint it looks like when this baby was being painted. So I photographed him and gently replaced him inside the guitar where he belongs in my opinion. The tone just would not be the same if I left him out. Oh and since I'm off on tangents, the back side of the truss rod cover has a J.N. scratched into it. Johnny Nash? Jack Nicholson? Joe Namath? Juice Newton? Lots of possibilities! That said, should you have happened to continue reading this Jive Nonsense (JN), see pics and Let me know if you got questions. Frazier - 601.859.8596.
