Info from Thunderbolt Road Guitars.

They don’t make them like this anymore! Here is one cool 1927 Gibson L-4! This guitar is nearly 100 years old! The serial number technically dates this guitar to early 1928, but 1927 was the last year of the oval sound hole and the “checkered” outer ring was exclusive to 1927. This was very popular in the 20’s for Gibson. At one point the phenomenal Eddie Lang played this exact model! Typical of great archtops this one is loud. Very articulate and punchy. Well balanced. These instruments were designed to be played in a orchestras, so its a fantastic rhythm guitar.

Specs!  The body is a spruce top with maple back and sides. Beautiful sunburst finish. Adjustable ebony bridge.  Pickguard in case.

This is what an archtop is supposed to sound like! While this acoustic would be great for all sorts of application it really shines when it swings! Would make a killer gypsy jazz guitar, single note runs are loud with great ping and punch. Crispy cutting chords. Full body lush tone. Chances are if your looking at this guitar you already know what its all about. At almost a 100 years old this guitar is still swinging strong!
