    UPDATE - SOLD

    Unfortunately I need to part with my 1935 L-50.

    The guitar plays amazingly well, and has one of the more rare elevated fretboards over the top like an L5 of the time. Sounds beautiful, and feels incredibly solid for its age. To my knowledge it is all original except for

    - 1 replaced tuner (appears to be very old and vintage as well, I didn't even notice)
    - Back crack stabilized, repaired, and professionally refinished by a luthier.

    All other parts of the body are original finish with checking. Very nice spruce top. Asking $1800 here on the forum, going to list on Reverb for slightly more. Located in the southeastern part of the US, can ship for extra just to cover my costs or meet.

    Hi Paulie. Very nice guitar. I'm sorry it didn't work out for you.

    Does it have a 1 11/16 inch nut? Any chance you could post a picture of the back of the neck (and back of the guitar?) Thanks!

    Oops. I meant 1 3/4 inch nut... Also, found more pics of your guitar on another thread so I now know what the back of the neck looks like. It looks in good shape like the rest of the guitar.

    Again though, is it a 1 3/4 inch nut? Thanks.

    That is a lovely old Gibson guitar! I had one very similar several years ago and I can still almost feel that wonderfully shaped neck in the palm of my hand. Sorry you have to let it go, but someone will be delighted to become its keeper for the next while.

    Hi Paulie, Good luck with your sale. But,please look at your photo of the nut. I believe the zero end is hanging over a bit. Making her a 1 11/16th. If I'm wrong,I'm sorry. Again good luck with her,she's a beauty.
