1930 Gibson L-5 Guitar
 
Peghead Nation’s new Roots of Jazz Guitar instructor Matt Munisteri demonstrates one of his two 1930 Gibson L-5 guitars.
October 9, 2017

Matt Munisteri is a freewheeling and virtuosic guitarist and one of today’s primary exponents of 1920s and ’30s acoustic jazz guitar. Peghead Nation is excited to announce that Matt is now teaching Roots of Jazz Guitar, a new Peghead Nation course devoted to that music. In Matt’s course, you’ll learn to play the 1920s and ’30s chord melody and rhythm guitar styles of Eddie Lang, Nick Lucas, Freddie Green, Carl Kress, and other early jazz greats. You’ll learn chord melody solos to popular swing melodies, advanced rhythm guitar techniques, acoustic jazz picking techniques, and more.

In this video, Matt talks about one of his 1930 Gibson L-5 guitars. He discusses the history of the L-5 a bit and how he acquired this particular instrument from TR Crandall Guitars in Manhattan. The guitar had been owned for many years by someone who lived just a few blocks from Matt’s grandfather in Brooklyn, and when Matt had some work done on it he discovered that the great archtop guitar maker John D’Angelico had most likely worked on the guitar, probably replacing the frets, refinishing it, widening the f-holes slightly, slimming the neck, and replacing the fingerboard and tailpiece. It’s serial number is only seven digits away from his main guitar, another L-5, which he’s played since 2000. Matt finishes by playing the early jazz classic “Jeannine, I Dream of Lilac Time.”
