1918 Gibson L3
Original finish Gibson L3 with an ebony fingerboard, herringbone sound hole ring, and trapeze tailpiece. Original ebony tailpiece with thick celluloid tortoise shell color/pattern trapeze is in good condition, the tortoise cross bar is solid and shows no cracks or failure. The original nut is present.
Top and bottom are crack and damage free. One repaired crack on bass side of body. The floating bridge has a patent date of 1921 stamped on the base, so that is likely not original to the guitar.
The neck was recently refretted, the fret board was planed level during that refret, so the neck is straight and flat.
