THE GIBSON L5, Adrian Ingram
Introduced in 1922, the Gibson L5 is the precursor of the modern archtop guitar. It was the first archtop to feature f-holes, which allowed it to project through the horn-dominated bands of the day.
Its strong, full, warm sound was an immediate and overwhelming success that turned the heads of makers, players and listeners alike.

Debuting in 1949 and in continuous production ever since, the ES-175 is one of the most versatile and famous guitars in music history.
The first Gibson electric to feature a Florentine cutaway, the ES-175 was also one of the first Electric Spanish guitars to be fitted with P.A.F. humbuckers and is prized for its playability, craftsmanship, and full rich tone.
