Fantastic jazz guitar, but with processing nails

13.10.2014
I bought the L-5 in nature about a year ago and am excited about the sound, the playability and the appearance. It is an absolute pleasure to play on this guitar! Other guitarists have also been enthusiastic about the quality of this guitar. It is also perfect for jazz and rockabilly as well as Rock'n'Roll, Blues a la T-Bone Walker and 60's James Brown Funk.
But I advise anyone who is interested in such a guitar to test them extensively. I chose the guitar then under 3 other L-5s and there were clear quality differences. One of the guitars even had an extremely noticeable deadspot on the A string in the 12th Bund!
This one is the hammer and I play it every day!
