Description: Gibson L6s Midnight SpecialEDIT
It was designed by Bill Lawrence (Gibson employee) in 1972, with the remit to make a “multi-sound system” under a very tight budget. The final production guitar was somewhat different from the Guitar he had in mind but “even with these changes, the early production L6-S was still an excellent performer”
The popularity of the L6-S dropped rapidly after 1974, despite high profile endorsements from the likes of Al di Meola and Carlos Santana. All models were dropped from price lists in 1979. The L6-S Custom remained in the catalog in 1980 and was still being made in the Nashville plant. No model has ever been reissued.
The L6-S came in three variants; all were maple-bodied with twin super-humbucking pickups
