1936 Gibson L00 – £3199

SOLD  The L00 is probably Gibson’s best know blues guitar, and to find a 30’s example is becoming quite difficult. This is an old warhorse of a guitar, and has the scars to prove it – three repaired top cracks and a repaired side crack – but it’s survived to become one of the best sounding blues guitars I’ve played, full of character. When you pick the guitar up you soon realise why it’s been played so much, the single note clarity is excellent and the sustain is really impressive. Also it’s very comfortable to play – after years and years of gigging, the V profile neck feels great. Despite all the bumps and bruises, it’s just back from a neck reset and a refret, so it plays like a dream and is strong enough to go on for another 84 years. This is a great chance to own a piece of Gibson history – it even comes in it’s original hard case.
