Default 1946 Gibson L48

Hi Folks,

I own a 1946 Gibson L48. The gentleman I bought it from said that the top was spruce. I think that most L48s were laminated mahogany all around, and only the first batch (1946) had some spruce tops. Could this spruce top be carved? Additionally, the guitar has no serial number, and from what I could research, this is true up until the fifties for these. Is that correct?

Thanks,

Lou
