When I was a teenager in Pittsburgh (50 years ago), I bought a Gibson L-1 roundhole from, I believe, the late ‘teens. It cost me $100. Unfortunately, the top appeared massively thick and very little sound came out. So I took it to a local pawn shop and traded it even for a ‘61 Les Paul Junior they had hanging on the wall. Those were the days! My lesson from all this was to beware of over-built early Gibson archtops.
