This is a vintage 1937 black Gibson archtop guitar on blue background. The Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Mfg. Co., Ltd. is formed in October 10, 1902. In 1934 the "Advanced" L-5 and Super 400 are introduced. Jazz bands are getting bigger, and Gibson responds to guitarists' need for more volume by advancing the size of the L-5 (and other archtops) from 16" to 17".
