Handbuilt in Kalamazoo by former Gibson artisans in the old Gibson plant, the Eagle is the workhorse of the Heritage line. Equivalent in size to the L-5C and L-7C, the Eagle shares the same Venetian cutaway and parallel bracing. A classic single pickup jazz box, the guitar combines elegant simplicity with handsome flamed mahogany throughout.

The guitar has a clear, balanced and focused voice, with the warmth and depth you'd expect from the solid mahogany tonewood. The action is smooth and low over a gentle D profile neck with excellent original fretwork. The guitar is in superb condition without cracks, pick, buckle or thumbwear, and is fitted with its original floating humbucking pickup and its original hardshell case. A handmade classic and the ultimate best-buy in a true American made acoustic archtop guitar.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge nickel roundwound strings (.013-.056). The guitar will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference. String action is set at 5/64" to 6/64" at the 12th fret, with moderate relief. The action may be lowered or raised to your requirements with the adjustable bridge.

Case: Original deluxe arched plush lined hardshell case.
