Late '30s Gibson L-37

This is a small-body prewar archtop Gibson that has certainly lived a life and carries on to tell the tale! 

Features a nice wide, V-shaped neck and a super loud and articulate sound. Great for recording or playing at home. 

The back as been refinished, the tuners have been replaced, as have a few of the screws. It also has a replacement bone nut, replaced frets and there is some evidence of a neck re-set. All that being said this is a wonderful players guitar with a deceptively large sound for the guitar's size. 

Ships in a non-original hardshell case. Feel free to reach out with any questions, we're always interested in vintage trades!
