1946 Gibson L-50 in OK City for $600

This is just about the best deal I've ever seen on a 50+ year old Gibson. L-50's generally go for somewhere in the $1200-$2K range. Of course, this one is not 100% original, but she looks very nice and I am sure sounds sweet as cherry pie. Seller sounds like a legit player/collector.

A great playing vintage Gibson that I hate to let go, but trying to get down to just a couple of guitars and free up some space around the house. It's not in pristine condition (it's naturally "road worn"), but it's a clean solid, attractive vintage player. Plays nice and easy, with low action, a nice fret job, no rattles, and gorgeous tones. About the best sounding acoustic I've ever played. Excellent for jazz, blues, or country. Has a transitional one-year-only headstock decal (1946) from what I'm told.
Pickguard, tuners, and possibly tailpiece are not original to the guitar, although they are still period vintage.
Bridge is original.
Two older repaired cracks, one on the top under the pickguard, and one on the side on the lower bout. My tech inspected them and says they're stable and solid.
No other issues that I'm aware of, but the guitar, because of its age, is being sold as-is.
Comes with a new Road Runner hard case.
Just a great vintage piece, so please come get it before I change my mind again.
Thanks for looking! Happy to answer any questions as best I can.
