Gibson L-75 1936
Out of stock
A very rare Gibson L-75 1936. This vintage round hole archtop is a very nice crossover between a flat top and archtop.
In terms of design, this Gibson is very similar to the early 1930s 14-fret L-4. One of the main differences is the solid flat mahogany back and sides. With an L-4 the back and sides would have been made of maple. The vintage round hole archtop is a very nice crossover between a flat top and archtop.
The solid carved spruce top has a beautiful dark tobacco sunburst. We also find a sunburst on the sides of the body. As you may know, this is not very common on a Gibson.
We find two cracks in the sides of the guitar, see photos. One of them is glued, the other crack still needs to be repaired. The guitar also has a light center-seam crack at the top of the guitar.
One of the previous owners added a "zero fret" and moved the 9th position marker to the 10th position, just like tenor guitars and banjos.
The original tuners have been upgraded with modern Grover tuners. 5 of the original Grover tuners are still present.
Comes with a modern case.
