    Picked this up Friday from the forum's own That Rhythm Man. I woke up at 5 AM, drove a couple hours to his studio to make the quick exchange of trading some of my gear, and drove back home with the L7 in time to work that whole day. I was exhausted, but it was very much worth it. It was my second purchase from him and first time meeting him, and couldn't recommend him more - great seller and nice guy!!

    The McCarty is a repro with a Lollar pickup in it and it sounds fantastic. I have mainly been enjoying it unplugged though. Theres just something about that old wood sound from a Gibson archtop. I will try to post a video this week

    Ah .... I had one back in the 70's ... great guitars.
    Paid $750 bucks in Boston in 77.
    Looking forward to your video.
    Looks like a keeper

    Wow good find. My first jazz teacher had one, I was just mesmerized by its tone. Enjoy!

    Congrats!

    These can be such great guitars...I settled on L-7's a long time ago.
    (of course each has its own character or why have more than one?)

    I've got a '49 L-7c with a McCarty that looks like its twin!
    I love mine and like yours it also has a great acoustic tone.

    My L7 came with an endpin-jack already installed, so I wired my pickup to that. Is yours is setup that same way, with an endpin jack?

    Yes! I wasn't aware of it until I showed up to get it but I am very, very glad it was already done.

    Very nice. I love old L7’s too. My dad had a nearly identical guitar for over 50 years. It was a great sounding guitar.
