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.

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...
