1931 Gibson L2 Argentine Grey – £6499

NEW ARRIVAL  If ever there were a particular Gibson flattop with “all the right stuff”, this 1931 L-2 would be it. Gibson produced the L-2 in very limited numbers during its brief lifespan between 1929 and 1933, and the design changed frequently with a confusing amount of overlapping details. This example has the very desirable 12-fret neck, pin bridge, Mahogany back and sides, “The Gibson” pearl logo, six-point “flame” headstock inlays, and drop-dead gorgeous Argentine grey finish complemented by its gold-sparkle purfling and rosette ring. It also lacks a pickguard, allowing the glorious, tight-grained spruce top to vibrate without any hindrance. Add in the beautifully engraved and rare banjo tuners, and this guitar exudes a sexy, understated elegance that is only surpassed by its sweet, balanced tone, rich resonance, and impressive volume output, which possibly make this the ultimate fingerstyle small-body flattop. The guitar comes straight from a luthier with exceptional playability. It comes in a non original hard case.
