    Gibson L6S Limited Edition Electric Guitar with Case Product Description

    To bring all the toneful goodness and succulent playability of this classic back to the table, Gibson USA introduces the Gibson L6S Limited Edition electric guitar. The Gibson L6S is a performance tool that's still primed to carry today's rock, blues, and fusion guitarist wherever he or she wants to go. With its dual humbucking pickups, resonant maple construction, and versatile controls, the L6S Limited Edition brings back a great voice that's all Gibson, yet something a little different too.

    One of the more intriguing new models to emanate from Gibson in the mid 1970s, the L6S was favored by Carlos Santana and Rich Williams of Kansas, along with several other notable players of the day, and quickly proved its power born from a marriage of Gibson tradition and a sleek, efficient, modern design ethos.


    - Solid grade-A Maple body with Antique Natural nitrocellulose finish
    - Maple neck with SlimTaper profile
    - Maple fingerboard with dot inlays
    - Four-conductor split-coil 490R and 498T humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge
    - Grover kidney button tuners with 14:1 tuning ratio


    Designed as a slim, solidbodied take on Gibson's great 'L' series archtop jazz guitars, the L6S capitalizes on the properties of a tonewood that is rarely used as a solid timber by this vaunted guitar maker. A body and neck of solid Grade-A maple give the L6S guitar unprecedented sustain and clarity, along with a chimey depth that is further enhanced by this model's overall design. This single-cutaway solidbody is given an Antique Natural finish in nitrocellulose lacquer, to bring out the timeless beauty of the wood, while encouraging unbridled resonance.

    Neck and Hardware

    The glued-in Grade-A maple neck neck is carved to a fast, slim profile that measures .800 inches at the 1st fret and .930 inches at the 12th. It is topped with a Grade-A maple fingerboard fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and 12 inch radius for easy, choke-free bending. The classic pairing of Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece keep it all solid at the body end, while a set of great Grover kidney button tuners assure smooth efficiency north of the PLEK-cut Corian nut.


    In the electronics department, the L6S Limited Edition goes for a blend of classic Gibson and contemporary versatility. Two genuine Alnico-magnet humbucking pickups with four-conductor split-coil wiring, a 490R in the neck and a hotter 498T in the bridge, give you everything from smooth, vocal warmth to crunchy rhythm and snarling lead tones.

    A six-position pickup switch on the L6S Limited Edition taps selections for bridge humbucker, bridge single coil, both single, both humbucking, neck single, and neck humbucking for an unprecedented array of alternative voices, while the master volume control is accompanied by two genuine EQ pots for Treble roll-off and bass-roll off, giving you more tonal control than ever before.
