Gibson L-4 HSL4 Light Cherry Burst, 2022 ✓

When originally introduced in 1912, the Gibson L-4 appeared as a 16 inch wide, oval hole archtop, switching to F-holes in 1935. The cutaway body L-4C appeared in 1949 and by 1956 had displaced the non-cutaway model. In Gibson’s naming convention, the ‘C’ was dropped some years ago.

Gibson L-4CES Archtop Electric Natural, 1989 ✓

Here we’re looking at a Gibson L-4CES (CES for Cutaway Electric Spanish) in Natural lacquer finish, dating to January 11 1989 and built at Nashville. This example is in overall very good, clean and original condition with light wear to the back finish and very light fret wear. The gold plating on the pickups shows typical wear to the bass edge, but the bridge, tailpiece and tuner plating has very little wear.

Martin 2-17 #25 Guitar Mahogany, 1930 ✓

Martin 2-17 #25 Guitar Mahogany, 1930  ✓

Here we’re looking at a Martin 2-17 #25 built during early 1930 in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, showing a 1929 feature – a straight saddle. Not long after this guitar was built, Martin shifted to slanted saddles, giving the bass strings a little more length for intonation purposes. Apparently 449 were built during 1930 with this saddle, and 50 with the slanted saddle.
