Gibson Custom Shop Crimson Edition L5 CES Blonde Electric Guitar w/ P90s - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


This 2012 Custom Shop Crimson Edition L5 is truly an homage to those first blonde factory electrified L5s. Like the originals from 1951, it comes equipped with single coil P90s. It's a combination that's much harder to come by these days, but has some real sonic benefits. Compared to the more commonly found humbuckers, the P90s offer a boost of clarity and pop on what is already a plenty warm, full-bodied guitar. Beautifully figured maple back and sides and a spruce top ensure incredible acoustic responsiveness and tone, suitable for a variety of musical settings. The condition of this 2012 guitar is impeccable, with only the most minor signs of prior ownership--there's light wear on the pickguard, and very little fret wear. Certificate of authenticity and original paperwork all included.
