1937 Gibson L-7 – £3499

NEW ARRIVAL  The 1930’s was a true golden era for Gibson’s archtop line: a period that produced some of the most sought after and famed instruments. Choice Maple and Spruce was abundant, and this guitar is built with stunning pieces of both. Introduced in 1932, the Gibson L-7 was Gibson’s most popular professional sized archtop. Identical in all but cosmetics to the costly L-5, the L-7 was highly prized by working players for it’s warmth, projection and playability. It features a hand-carved solid Spruce top; solid figured Maple back; Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard, and beautiful mother of pearl headstock and fingerboard inlays. This example is in well played condition, a little scruffy in places, with upgraded Grover open back tuners, and one small crack repair by the treble side F hole. The tone and projection of the guitar are very impressive, voiced beautifully for blues, jazz and swing. It has a very comfortable neck and, just back from a re-fret, a dream to play. It has the kind of vintage vibe that is impossible to replicate in a reissue. The guitar comes in a non original hard case.

1967 Gibson LG0 – £1299

NEW ARRIVAL  Gibson’s LG0 is the lesser known cousin of the LG1 - a 00 sized, ladder braced acoustic, but with a Mahogany top rather than Spruce. The tone is smoother and warmer than an LG1, and what it lacks in attack it makes up for in sustain. The guitar works...
