About the Gibson L-50 “Script” 1946

Due to the lack of a FON number, we date this instrument to 1946 or 1947. Since those are the only years Gibson used this style of Script logo.

This work-horse has a solid, not to be confused with the later “pressed” tops, spruce top and maple back and sides. The (replica) tortoise pickguard is a real jewel on this guitar!

The mahogany neck has a chunky neck profile with a Brazilian Rosewood fretboard. The back of the neck has been sanded down. But you can still see the original finish on the sides of the headstock. There are no cracks at the heel nor headstock. They probably sanded the neck for “playability” purposes.

On the lower area of the backside we find an old center seam crack repair. Inside the body we also find some cleats. They did a pretty decent job repairing this crack.

The original tuners have been upgraded with modern (aged) Double Line Kluson tuners.

This Gibson has been recently refretted. Plays like butter!

The Gibson comes with a modern case.
