This 1946 Gibson L-7 has a big, punchy voice that has likely been enhanced by many hours of play.  It was refretted at some point with a more vintage style fretwire and it plays very nicely.  It has just the voice one would want for accompanying a band, but also can perform quite well for a solo guitarist.

 

The finish appears original, and the top, back, and sides are completely free of cracks.  The pickguard and tailpiece appear original.  The top is made of a fine piece of hand carved, tap tuned spruce, while the back is made of solid, carved, figured, "bubble" maple.  The sides are bent, solid maple.  The neck is a three piece maple neck which is nice and straight.  The fingerboard is Brazilian rosewood.  The original tuners were replaced long ago with vintage style Grover Sta-Tite tuners which function very nicely.  The bridge is a replacement piezo style which runs to an endpin jack and does about as nice of a job conveying the tone of the guitar as a piezo system can do.  The truss rod cover has been replaced.

 

The guitar comes with a vintage Lifton case which is likely original to the guitar.
