1974 Gibson L5S Custom - Sunburst Flametop

1974 Gibson Les Paul L5S in excellent condition and all original. Only minor playwear, only the gold-plating on the hardware shows some wear, especially the bridge. The L5S came out in 1973 and was actually a "solid-body version" of Gibson succesfull L5 Jazzguitar and features a lot of similar appointments such as the highly flamed 5-piece maple neck and body, the multi-bound 24 3/4"scale ebony fretboard, the extensively-styled L-5 headstock with famous flower-pot inlay and 6x Kluson "Sealfast" machine-heads. The L5S was by far Gibson most expensive electric guitar back then. The two Gibson "Tarback" Humbuckers  deliver a nice and warm sound. The Gibson L5S turned out to be not very succesfull, even so many famous players could be seen with a L5S such as Pat Matino, Keith Richard, Mark Farner (Grand Funk), Ron Wood, Neil Schon (Journey) and many others. Incl. orig. Gibson hardshell case with purple lining.
