SOLD - Gibson L50 1937-40 project archtop guitar

Shipping calculated at checkout.

This is a restoration project that someone started but never completed.  A top seam separation has been addressed.  There is some separation of the back from the sides, but it does not look like it would be difficult to deal with for someone who would tackle such a project. 

In the end, this pre-war Gibson archtop will be a killer - it just needs the love!  There is some binding we'll include with the guitar, some of which does look original.  There is a hardshell case included to get it safely to you in shipping.
