    I saw that Tal and agree about him, one of the most knowledgeable dealers.

    ps Larry's a friend of mine too, going back to his Mandolin Bros days

    Wow - that’s great Wintermoon. I remember my Mandolin Brother visits going back to the 80’s - a fun place. Larry is a good friend of mine as well.

    With almost all guitar buying online now - trust is so important , and that’s what you can count on with Larry.

    He’s on one the most knowledgable dealers in the country - with the upmost integrity.

    I'm guessing the covers were corroded by the outgassing guard, hence the replacements, but otherwise a beautiful example of an orig Tal, though I wonder why the knobs were swapped out. Be very hard to find an orig set, they only came on a couple models back then.

    The flame in the wood on the Tal is fantastic - especially the back. I don’t know about the knobs , but overall a beautiful example.

    I hear a few of the 90’s Gibson’s are real good too.

    to be an excellent player.

    Thanks QAman for the heads up! I just emailed the dealer about that blond L5CT!

    I'm super curious to know what are the other models from the 90s that will be coming!

    I know one is a beautiful Super400, and I’m waiting for Larry to send me pics. No risk buying from Larry - he’s very well connected and has access to some of the best collections coming to market.

    Larry responded very quickly to my inquiry. Unfortunately, the neck of that blond L5CT is too thin for me. I had an incredible blond one from the same era, but sold it because I gravitate toward my guitars with rounded 50s neck profiles. Too bad, else I'd have made an offer.

    The blonde L5CTES is a real beauty . Too bad it didn’t meet your needs.
