guitar has handwound Kent Armstrong split coil pickups for an amazing variety of tones. There are two push/pull pots and one tone control
with a 3-way flip switch. The neck is a maple/rosewood Mighty Mite bolt on with a custom "Lehmann Whoosh" headstock. The back and
sides are Brazilian Lacewood. The string length is 24 3/4" and the lower bout is 15 1/2". Comes with quality Ritter gig bag or deluxe TKL

| picture | picture | picture | picture
This revolutionary design with all solid wood, bent side construction creates a 4 pound electric wonder! Fitted with a split coil soap-bar
Kent Armstrong pickup, a surprising variety of tones can be produced. There is plenty of volume to play acoustically, and the unique
spruce "cylinder top" makes The Lance extremely comfortable to hold. The back and sides are Lacewood, and the tailpiece
is chromed brass.  TKL hard shell case.

This model has a 25.5" string length, and the body width at the lower bout is 13". It is fit with a bolt on neck with a rosewood
fingerboard with mother of pearl lightning inlays. The tuning machines are light weight Kluson style.

This guitar was the prototype model and has developed several top cracks that are repaired.  Subsequent models used a less stressful
top radius which has solved this issue.

picture | picture | picture |picture | picture | picture |picture | picture |
Great Ragtime era guitar and early archtop design from Gibson. The L-3 features 13 3/4" wide lower bout and a 24" string length. The beautiful
dark red sunburst top features a racy 1920's pin-up girl decal. The back and sides are finished in deep mahogany colored finish. It has the original
one piece ebony bridge, and tailpiece with tortoise shell bar and pin set up. The large neck has a bound ebony fingerboard, and the tuners are
Golden Age antiqued reproductions. The inlaid tortoise shell pickguard is not original. The neck is straight, the fingerboard has been leveled, and
there are new frets. It plays easily and it's really fun to play with that old timey tone!

has been altered for a pickup at some time. The back has been off and has been bound with ivoroid and black. Perhaps to fix the usual back shrinkage? All looks solid and good. Has the Gibson tailpiece cover and adjustable bridge! TKL Hard case.
