Headstock: Horizontal ‘The Gibson' logo, replacement tuners
Neck/fingerboard: Wide block markers from the third fret and a 19-fret fingerboard with a square end. Truss rod cover of the type more usually seen on 17-Inch L-5s
Body: maple back with maple sides
Hardware: gold-plated metal parts, regular trapeze tailpiece and long pickguard
Notes: Has been fitted with a humbucking pickup plus tone and volume controls, which will have necessitated cutting holes in the front of the guitar. The pickguard has been cut to accommodate the pickup.
Though the serial number is hard to read, the spacing of the digits suggests that it may indeed be 94906 (there is a wide gap between the 9 and the 4), If this is the case, the guitar is one of just 11 16-inch L-5s shipped in 1937. If the serial number is 91906, it is one of 110 16-inch L-5s shipped in 1935.
