1927 Gibson L-4 Archtop (consignment) NO LONGER AVAILABLE

Comments The Gibson L-4 was built between 1912 and 1956, and underwent a number of changes. Originally it had – like many archtops of the time – an oval soundhole; this changed to a round soundhole in 1928, and finally to the now-common F-holes in 1935.

This 1927 Gibson L-4 is in good playing condition, and overall decent mostly original shape. It plays well and sounds good, and looks great!
