2001 Gibson L00 1937 Reissue – £2199

ON HOLD  This is more than just a ’37 reissue L00. Essentially the guitar has a tri burst finish which gives a very distinctive look, rather than the traditional two tone tobacco burst. But more interesting is the fact that the guitar has a deep body – like a Nick Lucas – and I can’t remember seeing another L00 reissue like it. It’s still a traditional Spruce Mahogany, X braced 00 size guitar, but the deeper body adds a bass response I haven’t heard on an L00 before. It still works really well as a classic blues box, but with a fuller sound – very cool. The other distinctive thing to mention are the deluxe Kluson, enclosed butterbean tuners, which just add to the really distinctive look. For a 20 year old guitar, it’s in excellent condition, with no cracks or repairs, just some lacquer checking on the headstock. The guitar comes in it’s original embossed hard case.
