Thanks for browsing this Craigslist ad!

Today, you are looking at this totally awesome (and slightly odd) mid-70s, Gibson L6-S Midnight Special, solid body electric guitar. These don’t come up for sale too often, and becoming more scarce as time goes by.

This Gibson was manufactured in rare, burgundy sparkle finish. As far as I know, only 30 custom sparkle models (as this one) were purchased.

Gibson wanted to compete with Fender's comparatively cheaper Strats and Teles in the early 70s, and came out with these L6 models. This midnight special's harp-thru-string-body and hard-tail style is superior. You'll get those "twangs" as good as any Tele. It's a fast playing guitar and ergonomically feels good considering its thinner neck.

The Gibson L6-S has a bolt-on, 3 piece maple neck, a maple fingerboard, and a maple face on the head-stock. Sources have said, the pickups are designed by Bill Lawrence for Gibson. This Gibson L6 has a clear, see-through pickguard, which many did not have. Some models are shown with a black pickguard (the clear pickguard looks better).

The L-6 was the model Paul Stanley of Kiss used from December 1974 to June 1975. Carlos Santana endorsed these guitars as well.

Overall, it's in good condition, especially for its age, and some normal wear-and-tear for a 50ish year-old instrument. The automotive-related stickers on the guitar's body are included at no extra charge!

The instrument weighs just shy of 8 pounds.

Serial #: 337270.

NOTE: It is suggested that the guitar be taken to an expert Luthier for string installation of your personal choice, inspection, adjustments, cleaning, polishing, testing, and a proper setup.

Asking price for this unique collectible: $1700.00/offer.

Serious, local, in-person, cash-only buyers.

The guitar can be seen in Los Osos, California, when a convenient, coordinated date/time is scheduled. Please leave a phone number for contact.

This is a guitar that will surely turn many heads — certainly a unique "keeper!"

I am acting on behalf of the seller as an agent, who has numerous, vintage instruments for sale. The Octogenarian owner has performed for many years, downsizing his keepsake items, and now, his collection is for sale.

NOTE: PLEASE LEAVE YOUR PHONE NUMBER, SO I MAY REFER YOUR POTENTIAL INTEREST TO THE GUITAR'S OWNER. EXPRESS A BRIEF COMMENT IN YOUR RESPONSE TO INDICATE YOU ARE A DEDICATED, SINCERE, AUTHENTIC, "NO-SCAM" BUYER.

Thanks for your interest.
