1930 Gibson Black L-10 in excellent condition. The L-10 model was clearly in development for sometime at the Gibson factory before being listed as a catalog model. Examples as early as 1925 exist and are well documented. The first year the L-10 appears in the catalog is 1932. Gibson archtop guitars are forever the bench mark to which all others are measured. This guitar is a perfect example why. Included is the original red-line “faultless” case which is also in excellent condition.
