About the Gibson L-75 1936

Designwise this Gibson looks a lot similar to the 14-fret L-4 of the early 1930s. One of the major differences are the solid braced flat mahogany back and sides. An L-4 would have had maple back and sides. The mahogany back and sides give it a nice warm tone.

This vintage archtop features a dark tobacco sunburst over a nicely hand carved solid spruce top. Also, on the sides of the body we find a beautiful sunburst. As you might know, this is not very common to see on any Gibson guitar.

In both sides of the guitar we find a crack, see photos. One of them is glued, the other one needs to be repaired. There’s also a small center seam crack on the top of the guitar. One of the owners previous added a “zero fret” and replaced the 9th position markter to the 10th position, just like tenor guitars and banjos.

The original tuners are upgraded with modern Grover tuners. 5 of the original Grover tuners are still there.

Comes with a modern case.
