The Gibson L6-S was the successor to the L5-S, itself born as a thinner version of the L-5 hollowbody. The L6-S was an innovative guitar in the Gibson family, being very thin and featuring 24 frets, the first in the Gibson catalog to do so. This unorthodox guitar for its time was originally embraced by the likes of Al Di Meola and Carlos Santana, but fell out of favor in the ‘80s. This L6-S was made in 1977 and features a maple fretboard, 24 frets, and a very thin profile. This particular piece has had its pickguard removed and its original pick-ups replaced with DiMarzios. It does have some fret wear and dings on the fretboard, but it still has a great action and plays quite well. Includes original hard-shell case and custom maroon paint job.
