This Custom Shop Wes Montgomery L-5 was built to the same specifications as the instrument used by Montgomery in the 1960's. Featuring a rounded cutaway, period-correct L-5 tailpiece, five-piece maple neck in the traditional ES-rounded profile, and stunning pearl block inlays, this example is a close runner-up to the original inspiration. This guitar now features a Lollar humbucker and the original '57 Classic is in the case. This guitar is in excellent overall condition with no cosmetic issues or damages to mention! The original hard case also includes the certificate of authenticity and case candy.
