Here we have a vintage Gibson L6-S from the 1970's. Originally bright red, over time the colour has faded to a dark, wine red colour. The model ultra-low frets for an extremely smooth feel and two humbucking pickups with a 6 way way rotary selector, the positions of which are as follows:
1) Both pickups, in series
2) Neck pickup, alone
3) Both pickups, in parallel
4) Both pickups, parallel out of phase, with the neck pickup's bass response restricted through a series capacitor.
5) Bridge pickup, alone
6) Both pickups, series out of phase
As can be expected from an instrument of this age, the body shows relatively high amounts of wear in the wood and finish. The hardware also shows signs of wear such as tarnishing and scratches, none of which affects the amazing playability of this guitar.
This item is pre-owned so may have marks and signs of wear. We do select the best instruments we can find for re-sale. We describe instruments as accurately and with as much photographic detail as possible. You can call us: (01283) 500365/500366 or email us: firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the instrument, we would be happy to email further photos if required. You are of course, welcome to visit the showroom to try any instrument. Accessories, if any, are listed in the description. All pre-owned instruments are meticulously checked over and set up in our workshop prior to dispatch.
