The Gibson L-5S was introduced essentially a solidbody variation of the classic L-5 hollowbody. Both models featured a single cutaway body style and multi-ply binding. The L5-S was launched with low-impedance pickups that were replaced with humbuckers in 1974. It also started out with a plate tailpiece that was later replaced with a stopbar. Its array of high-end appointments make the L5-S more collectable than the similar L6-S.
