About This Listing

Gibson L-2   1920’s   Serial Number: Unreadable.

This appears to be a 1920’s Gibson L-2. The label is unreadable so that I am going by the characteristics of the guitar. This guitar came to me needing much restoration. The back was off when I got it, so that repairing cracks in the top and replacing the right hand top brace was possible. The back had shrunk over time and no longer fit the guitar well. I added binding to the back to make it fit. The back and sides were over sprayed, this may have been done before. The top was refinished. The tailpiece is not original to the guitar but is a vintage Grover, the bridge appears to be original, the bone nut is new and the tuners are modern replacements. The pickguard is a replacement but vintage. The guitar does not have an adjustable truss rod but the neck is strait. The neck is a chunky V shape. The guitar is I 7/8 inch at the nut, 24 ½ inch scale and a 13 ½ inch lower bout. It has had a fresh fret dress and set up so that it plays and sounds great. The hard case is original and has a great deal of personalization. The case does smell of Febreze.

 I try to describe all the flaws an instrument has or had repaired. 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 fully repaired and 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.

Please go to CWSIR.COM to see Coldwater Stringed Instrument Repair and my shop. I have been doing repairs and restorations for more than 30 years.
