Description

There aren't too many Gibson L-Centuries lying around which sound this good or play this smoothly--the middle registers are warm and cozy, sandwiched between crisp bass notes and trebles with an extra helping of sustain. This Gibson has been played in nicely, and is still in wonderful shape. Wrapped up in a Calton flight case, you can be sure that no harm will ever come to this feat of Mother of Pearloid, Maple, and Adirondack Spruce.

An excellent blues machine, this L-Century is bright and snappy, and manages to pump a lot of volume out of a smaller body.
 
This is a great little guitar and it is set up perfectly. I've always thought these were pretty cool and others must too since Gibson did a reissue of it.
