Introduced in 1911 as an oval hole archtop, the L-4 is the oldest model in the Gibson catalog. The company's top-of-the line guitar until the L-5 debuted in 1922, the L-4 was redesigned with f-holes in 1935. It's comfy 16" body has always been popular with players reluctant to wrestle with a huge guitar, and its fast 24 3/4" scale rewards the hand with effortless stretch chords and lightning arpeggios.

This example incorporates design features from a number of Gibson's most distinguished guitars. Just as found on the L-5, the L-4 is crafted with a solid carved Sitka spruce top, and fitted with the ornate art deco tailpiece, twin gold '57 Classic PAF humbuckers, bound tortoise guard and pearl inlaid bridge. The 16" Florentine cutaway body shares the same dimensions as the ever-popular ES-175, but has a deeper cutaway for better access to the uppermost frets, and positions the neck pickup right at the end of the fingerboard, to maximize the richness of the tone.

This guitar is a product of the Gibson Custom, Art and Historic Division, and has a deeply flamed maple body, finished in lustrous burgundy lacquer, with a solid carved Sitka spruce top. The mahogany neck produces an instrument that is distinctly lighter in weight, and notably better balanced as well. The fingerboard is fast and sleek, the 24 3/4" scale facilitates fast finger work, and the twin humbuckers are fat and sweet. The contoured body is warmly resonant, and nicely resistant to feedback.
