1936 Gibson L30 – £1699

NEW ARRIVAL  Introduced in 1935, and only available in a black finish until 1936, this 1936 Gibson L30 is a striking looking example in very good condition. It’s quite rare to find an example with it’s original tortoise pickguard, and the guitar also features a 1936 Liberty nickel set into the headstock below the script logo, which is a classy touch. The tone is voiced beautifully for blues, jazz and swing, has a very comfortable neck – quite chunky – and a great playing action all the way up the neck. It has the kind of playwear you’d expect from an 85 year old guitar, and lots of great looking lacquer checking. The guitar is in very good condition, with a repaired back crack. It looks, feels and sounds fantastic, and has the kind of vintage vibe that is impossible to replicate in a reissue. The guitar has an active LR Baggs pickup fitted, with the battery pack mounted next to the end pin, and comes in a non original hard case.
