1997 Gibson L4ces in very good condition. It's a great sounding player's guitar with great action. It shows some wear including wear on the back of the head stock where it was leaned against something. It also has a ding on the treble side of the lower bout. There is also a small chip in the laquer on the back of the neck.

There are two professionally repaired cracks that run between the pickups on the bass and treble sides. They are right next to the braces and don't effect the tone. Contrary to popular belief, cracks in the top are not the kiss of death. They are stable and they do not affect the tone. A wise luthier once told me that all great Stradivarius' have cracks in the top. This is a players instrument not to investment instrument and thus is priced accordingly.

The pickguard is a replacement as are the pickup covers replacing the originals which were corroded.

The original case is included in used but solid condition. The shroud was damaged and has been removed.

Buyer pays actual shipping cost. The difference will be refunded if less than listing.
