1931 Gibson L-0 – £2999

NEW ARRIVAL  Only made between 1926 – 1933, and only in this body shape from 1931, this has to be one of the rarest Gibson models around. The L-0 is a 00 size, X braced all Mahogany guitar, and only 12 frets to the body which changes the string tension and therefore the resonance. In fact this is one of the most resonant guitars I’ve played, and a fingerpicker’s dream. The volume for such a small guitar is quite amazing, and the balance is very even. The guitar has been restored by luthier Graham Parker, and he has done a fantastic job – his attention to detail, and sensitivity are very impressive. This is a great example of a guitar that you just don’t want to put down, it has warmth and depth in it’s tone, and a great feeling neck. It comes in a non original hard case.
