Vintage Gibson L-6 in Des Moines for $500

Okay, now we all know why these are called the "Midnight Special" right?  Come on... children of the 70's.... yes because when KISS appeared on the Midnight Special in 1976 Paul Stanley played a prototype of these Bill Lawrence designed guitars.  Now here's the catch - the L-6 is the one you want - not the L-6S... this one has the nice setneck and better pickups.  Always check - is it an L6 or and L6-S?

This one also includes the original case.  These guitars are going on 35 years old now so don't think they won't go up in value.   They sure ain't making any more of em.

  1. Your Gibson is a Mid Night Special. Gibson made about 2000 of them but never offered them in a price list or catalog. The L6 had a six position switch and usually had a black head piece. The Mid Night Special has a three position switch. If the Gibson decal is black on natural wood you have a Mid Night Special. I've got one also. Just dug into the history of the guitar


I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
