Jack Van Breen Reviews A Gibson L5


Jack van Breen from Guitar Showcase in San Jose, California shows off a much-modified Gibson L5. This L5 started out as a strictly acoustic instrument. While having a large body for an archtop guitar, the former owner wanted to go electric so Gibson Humbuckers were added along with the rest of the electronics. The neck was shaved to give it a flatter radius — of course in the process all the neck block inlays were shaved off.
