Black-face, August,1995 Gibson F-5L made in Montana, signed by Bruce Weber offered on eBay.

Must be a special order -- I was not aware that these were routinely produced at the Montana factory.

It appears to be all black - I like it.

Yes it is all-black -- should have pointed that out.

This seems to be F-5L week on eBay there are three of them there now including this 1999 model signen by Sim Daley.

It has an odd colored sunburst that makes it attractive to my eye -- but it sure has had a "hard life".

It has been distressed the hard way -- one dent, scuff, scratch, and break at a time. Battle tested.
