    Woulda been high a couple yrs ago but thats actually priced about right for a blonde considering the market change lately.

    At that price I’d probably commission a build from Mark Campellone. And if I was looking for a bargain, just buy a used Campellone.

    I would say 7K is about right today for a Blonde Wesmo, so at the sale price (if you can still get it for that) it is a very fair deal. At the asking price it is a tad high and that is probably why it is still available.

    It is hard to beat a Gibson L-5. They are not making many these days and I expect that this is a guitar that will be in high demand for many years to come. Personally, I would rather have the L-5 over any luthier built instrument being made today. YMMV.

    well, at the Black Friday price of $6750 it's pretty attractive [something tells me that offer could be extended beyond Fri] I'd be surprised if it lasted a week, sunburst examples have been selling for 7K + lately. [I was considering selling my 90s blonde Super 400 but maybe I'll hold onto it a little longer the way things are going ]

    That guitar is on it's way to a now inactive forum member.

    Like I posted above, the price was VERY fair. You snooze, you lose.

    Mid 6's for a near new blonde L5 Wes is a great buy in today's market.

    The spruce top on that guitar is top notch.

    While I agree that is probably a great L-5CES. Mark Campellone builds some of the best Gibson Style archtops, I’ve ever played.

    That guitar is heading to exactly where it should be. It will be cherished, well maintained and lovingly played by a chord melody master.

    I thought Joe already had a Wesmo?
    Also, where has my fellow New Jerseyan been?

    Wow I just now realized that guitar was in a shop very near my home. I coulda checked it out for an interested buyer. Literally a 20 minute drive. But evidently someone already has it, so congratulations!
