1927 Gibson L-3 – £2749

NEW ARRIVAL   This is probably my favourite look of all the pre war Gibsons, the stunning sunburst finish has a real glow to it. The L-3 is a very important model as it remained the only small bodied Gibson archtop in production after 1926 when the L-1 and L-2 became flat tops. It’s a classic blues guitar than can lend itself to old time, rag and jazz. For a 93 year old guitar, it’s in amazing, all original condition, with just three tightly repaired cracks, even the inner label is still in tact and legible. Tonally it sounds like it’s being played through an old gramophone – and it gets your mind playing tricks that you could be in the deep south, sitting on a front porch watching the sun go down over the Mississippi….. It’s surprisingly comfortable to play, with low action and a great feeling chunky neck. It comes in a non original hard case.
