Lovies Guitars is offering up this gorgeous 2011 Gibson L6-S in Antique Natural! It’s what we call “New Old Stock” which just basically means that Gibson found it in the back of the warehouse, whether it didn’t sell or they forgot about it, they sold it to vendors and shops and so it’s in brand new condition it just doesn’t come with a warranty. These were great years for Gibson, the shear quality and feel of the guitars were out of this world! You’re essentially getting a brand new guitar for the price of a used! See many detailed photos included!
Weighs in at 8.3 lbs
.813″ at the 1st fret
.934″ at the 12th fret
1.677″ Nut Width
Designed as a slim, solidbodied take on Gibson’s great “L” series archtop jazz guitars, the L6S capitalizes on the properties of a tonewood that is rarely used as a solid timber by this vaunted guitar maker. A body and neck of solid Grade-A maple give the L6S unprecedented sustain and clarity, along with a chimey depth that is further enhanced by this model’s overall design. This single-cutaway solidbody is available in your choice of Antique Natural or Silverburst finish in nitrocellulose lacquer, a traditional finish known for encouraging resonance. The glued-in Grade-A maple neck is carved to a fast, slim profile that measures .800″ at the 1st fret and .930″ at the 12th. The Antique Natural L6S is topped with a Grade-A maple fingerboard while the Silverburst version features a fingerboard made from baked maple, an extremely hard-wearing, heat-treated tonewood. Both models have 24 medium-jumbo frets and 12″ radius for easy, choke-free bending. The classic pairing of Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece keeps it all solid at the body end, while a set of great Grover kidney button tuners assure smooth efficiency north of the PLEK-cut Corian nut.
In the electronics department, the L6S goes for a blend of classic Gibson and contemporary versatility. Two genuine Alnico-magnet humbucking pickups with four-conductor split-coil wiring—a 490R in the neck and a hotter 498T in the bridge—give you everything from smooth, vocal warmth to crunchy rhythm and snarling lead tones. But it’s all taken over the top with a deceptively powerful control array: a six-position pickup switch taps selections for bridge humbucker, bridge single coil, both single, both humbucking, neck single and neck humbucking for an unprecedented array of alternative voices, while the master volume control is accompanied by two genuine EQ pots for treble roll-off and bass roll-off, giving you more tonal control than ever before.
