    Default My 1981 f-5l

    Here's a photo of my Sept. '81 F5-L in Amazing condition. I bought it from the original owner. What a joy. It was signed off by Richard L. Doan, the Gibson man Charlie Derington chose to repair the scroll on Bill's Loar, ( or so my best research thru Gibson tells me)ATTACH=CONFIG]128546[/ATTACH]

    That is a beauty!! Looks to be in really nice shape too.
    Is that a custom tail-piece cover?
