I've been researching them for a while reading old catalogues and forums, but I don't feel like I know too much about them.

Does anybody here know what I should look for, the better models, and best vintage stores (both in USA and in Europe)?

Any help would be much appreciated!
Here's a Gibson L-75, which is uncommon, and basically an L-4 in disquise:

They've already dropped the price, so no telling what they'll consider. Also be on the lookout for the very rare L-50 round hole archtops. Quite unique!
