Summary: The Gibson L-6S
Deluxe was made between 1974 and 1979 with less than 4000 made….This beauty is
from 1979 & it has a super thin lightweight body with lots of vintage charm
& really great tone & feel. This
baby doesn’t come with the original hardshell case but we will pack it well
& ship it fully insured.
Body: Solid body maple
with a single cutaway with a bass bout beveled edge & some smooth bevels
around the lower back as well. The body
width is 13.5”. The body length is 16.5”
and the body depth is 1.25” – this is a thin body & its very cool.
Maple set neck construction with a rosewood fingerboard,
24 frets, dot inlays, Gibson 3 per side metal tuning keys, 1 9/16” nut width,
24.75” scale length. This instrument has
a narrow headstock with the black overlay & Gibson screened logo. The frets do show some wear but they have
plenty of life left in them.
Pickups/Hardware: Chrome or Nickle
hardware (looks aged but in good shape), strings through the body design,
Gibson tuning keys, black pickguard, 2 black covered humbucker pickups, 5-sided
pickup covers, volume knob, tone knob, 3-way switch, oversized rectangular Tune-O-Matic bridge.
Cosmetics: This instrument is a "SECOND" as stamped on the back of the headstock. This instrument
shows normal wear associated with a Gibson from the late 1970’s – there are
nicks & dings in the body, lots of scratches on the top on the pickguard
& the body of the guitar itself, buckle rash on the back with lots of small
scratches – the black paint is worn off on the back near where the strings go
through the body. This guitar also shows
wear at the neck joint with small chips & noticeable wear. The edges of the headstock are worn but
nothing structural and all wear is consistent with a guitar that has been
played but loved.
This rare awesome Gibson plays great up & down
the fingerboard – we put a new set of 10’s on this baby & gave it a full
setup – this Gibson is ready to be played and loved!
Weight: 7 lbs, 10 oz.
Case: No case but we
will ship it well packed, fully insured through Reverb.com, & fully bubble
wrapped in a gig bag…..
