Back in the Shack: 1951 National 1135 (Gibson L-7 Body) Carved-Top Guitar

Argh, I don't want to do this, but I'm listing this guy for sale. Everything is wonderful about this instrument but I've dug myself into the wide-lower-bout problem again. I just have to admit that I can't handle 17" on the lower bout. I max-out at 16" as I'm not the tallest guy in the world, so as I mostly play this sitting down (standing's no problem), I'm finding that I'm feeling "it" in the right arm. My loss, your gain, though -- potentially! Check out the blog post to see this lovely beast.
