    1934 Gibson L-12


    No affiliation w/ seller, etc. Joe V describes it as restored, ( refinished ), tuners look new.....Wonder if it has a tag ? Curious....Yes, refinished, w/p/u installed, but it's not crazy money...Hope it isn't a baseball bat neck......But of course love the look ! Were those x-braced ?

    Just thought it looked familiar...( ? ).....

    Parallel (kerfed) bracing. It would likely have a very large V-neck. Those are some of my favorite inlays.

    Yes, for me those inlays are also tough to beat ! I guess Gibson used a variant of the period L-4 necks, because I've found '30's L-7's are just fine, while the only '30's era L-4 I was ever able to play had a 'baseball bat' neck. Oh well.....

    Thx.

    I don't like those large v necks. I owned a Loar L5 for a few years back in the late 70's, and as great as it sounded, I just couldn't use it.

    I agree completely WS. What I meant in my prev. post was I was able to try out one of those ' 30's v necks but passed on the guitar, because it was just too much trouble to play - for me anyway.

    What a shame.
