Default Drum Boogie - Gibson L5 1993 wesmo

Just recorded this take on my Gibson L5 1993 wesmo of the classic “Drum Boogie” by Gene Krupa/Roy Eldridge.

Love that sweet. woody tone you're getting - those single-pickup full-bodies were many an in-the-trenches player's secret weapon in the '50s, offering acoustic capability (more so with a carved top like yours) with plugged-in versatility...

Just curious about the neck dimensions; FWIW I had the pleasure/privilege of playing Wes' personal L-5 when MandoBros was handling the sale back in the early-2K's - definitely on the narrower side (my long-time preference, BTW), and although I know later production moved to a thicker profile I'm wondering if the earlier runs conformed to Wes' original specifications...

I honestly canít give you a clear answer because I donít know what Wes specifications are and this is the only wesmo L5 Iíve played. The guy I bought it from actually purchased it from mandolin brothers in 1993. Itís 17 and width 3.5
