Notes:. The presence of the centre-dip headstock, wide neck heel, narrow block fingerboard inlays, Grover 98G ‘Sta-tite’ tuners and flat L-5 tailpiece engraved with ‘L-5’ legend, suggest that this instrument was re-necked and re-fitted at the Gibson factory at some point in the mid to late 30s. The finish has been touched up in a few areas and a pair of cracks near the tailpiece have been cleated and resealed. Has a repro pickguard
