Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $4,165$7,810

The Gibson L-5 is one of most iconic acoustic archtop guitars ever made. An important dividing line in its history is 1935, when the body enlarged from 16" wide to 17" wide. Some 16" models continued in production, and the earlier smaller bodied specimens are considered more valuable. 

Years of Production: 1923 - 1958
