A beautiful jazz guitar with a carved spruce top, figuared maple back and a single '57 humbucker.
The Gibson L-4 archtop is one of jazz’s greatest instruments. This one has a solid carved spruce top and carved solid maple for the back and rims. It's a comfortable 16" wide, 20" long, and 3-3/8" deep. Contributing much to the guitar’s silky, lush, deep tone is the one-piece mahogany neck. It has a 24-¾" scale length and is 1-11/16" wide at the nut.
True to the model’s historic evolution, today’s L-4 has a 20 fret Indian Rosewood fretboard with pearl split parallelogram inlays and single ply white binding. It boasts the classic ES rounded profile and a headstock with vintage tulip shape tuners. It features attractive gold hardware, the electronics and controls are pure Gibson with a single ’57 Classic humbucking pickup. The tailpiece is the iconic L-4 T-shape style and the bridge a hard working ABR-1.
The L-4, after being examined and set up on Gibson’s state-of-the-art Plek machines, is shipped wearing L-5 Electric .012 strings. This marvelous guitar comes with a Custom Shop case and certificate of authenticity.
