About This Listing

Gibson L-3       1929   Serial Number: 88944

This is a restored Gibson L-3 from 1929. When I got it the finish was comprised, the purfling around the sound hole was cut for a pickup and there were several cracks in the back and sides. This guitar was repaired and refinished. The tuners and nut are original. The bridge and tailpiece have been replaced. The pickguard has been replaced with a period piece. It has had a fret dress and setup so that it plays, sounds and looks great. The neck is strait  and the truss rod works as in should. The fingerboard does go towards the top on the last couple of frets. A new hard shell case is included. The serial number and model number have been drawn in with and ink. In researching the guitar I do believe that it’s an L-3.

I try to describe all the flaws an instrument has. This does not make for the best description of the instrument but I try use a trained eye to catch all the imperfections of an instrument. That way when you receive an instrument from Coldwater Stringed Instrument Repair there are no surprises. Please read the descriptions view all the photos and ask any questions you have.

All instruments leave my shop ready to play. If something shakes loose in transit or you notice something I missed, please contact me and I will try to make it right.
