|Comments||This Gibson L-5 CT from 2002 could be your best friend if you’re headed to the (orchestra) pit. It’s in near perfect condition, and is just a joy to play.
The L-5 CT is based on the L-5 CES but is a ‘thinline’ version, with a side with of 2.25″. It features the same carved, tuned spruce top and carved flame maple back.
The lower label specifies that the guitar was tuned on November 4, 2002 by James W. Hutchins.
This example is in excellent condition, with just a little hardware tarnish.
