Body and Neck Today’s Custom Shop L-5 CES is a truly classic instrument. Its appearance is both imposing and graceful, with a stylish single cutaway, block inlays, and artfully crafted headstock. The headstock is itself a work of art, bearing a pearl inlay inspired by the urns of ancient Greece. Available in wine red, ebony, natural, and vintage sunburst finishes, the L-5 CES has a high-grade spruce top and maple back and rims. Its body is a substantial 17-inches wide, 21-inches long, and 3 3/8-inches deep – dimensions key to its rich, dark, woody tones. Multi-ply binding in black or white accents the top and back, and single-ply white binding outlines the f-holes The guitar's neck is made of high-grade maple and walnut supporting a 20-fret ebony fingerboard with pearl block inlays and multi-ply black or white binding. The ES rounded profile neck has a 25 1/2-inch scale length with a 1 11/16-inch width at the nut. Hardware The electronics array is pure Gibson, with two '57 Classic humbucking pickups, two volume knobs, two tone knobs, and a three-way selector switch. The Custom Shop's L-5 CES is outfitted in all gold hardware and features Schaller M6s tuners. The instrument's ABR-1 bridge has an ebony base and there's an artfully rendered L-5 trapeze tailpiece.
