Up for grabs is a1951 Gibson L7. This one is solid as a rock, and ready to plug and play. I bought this a few months back from Chicago Music Exchange. I’m selling because it’s a little too big for my taste.  The action is low and set up with D’ Addario Chrome 11’s. It also plays well with 12’s. It has pro re fret, and a couple of solidly repaired side cracks on the treble side lower bout. Tuners were once changed, but originals are back on. A reissue De’Armond/Guild Rhythm Chief pickup, and thumbwheel tone can volume controls have been added. Output jack is a 1/8” Tapasting vintage taper endpin jack. Original endpin, and 1/8” to 1/4” cord included. It also appears the guitar was over-prayed clear at some point. My  best guess would be this occurred 30+ years ago due to the natural checking on the guitar. Electronics can be removed at buyers request. Comes with older but non original Canadian made case.  There is no reason to be afraid of the changes to this guitar. It’s a worry free and trouble free guitar. It is loud and resonant, and the electrons are easily reversible. I’v had several 17” and 16” arch-tops and this one is the best sounding one I’v owned.  Buyer gets 24 hour approval period upon deleviry. Priced to sell! Please feel free to ask questions.  Make me an offer! Want a better deal? Look for this guitar listing on Reverb!
