Gibson L-5 top thickness

“The 1941 L-5 guitar pictured below (Serial Number 97291) was purchased at the Southern California Guitar Show in 1995,” says guitar historian and collector, Lynn Wheelwright. “It was in the condition shown here and I intended to restore it. Though it was a project that I never got around to, I decided to take the time to map out the carve thickness of the top and back for my records. To do this, I used a MAG-ic Probe thickness gauge. I thought this info might be of use to others and figured a good way to get it out there was to share it on Paul’s great L-5 site!”
