1910s 1912 The Gibson Vintage L-4 Acoustic Red Mahogany Guitar L 4 5 Rare :
Hello here I have a Gibson guitar that I purchased at an estate sale from an older man that told me his grandparents played both this guitar and a violin i also purchased when they were enlisted in the army. I really do not know much about this guitar besides that it is an L-4 as stated in the sticker inside. The case is not the original case but I will be including it in the sale. The serial number is 15919. I took about 40 pictures but I can only post 12 on here, so I picked the ones that I feel best represent the guitar showing the scratches and cracks, I can gladly email pictures to anyone who is interested as well. Here are specs that I found through online research:
1912 L-4 Specifcations
