1930s Gibson L00 Guitar
(No serial number) Excellent condition. I think this is a late 1930s guitar based on the white script logo and the back binding; however, there is no serial or factory order number evident. It may be an early wartime guitar. Nice guitar with all original finish showing some playing wear. There are no structural repairs but a small section of mahogany has been replaced on the bass side. Has a mahogany back and sides and a x-braced mahogany top with an uniform brown finish, firestripe guard that follows the body contour, bone 1 3/4 inch nut on the chunky V profile neck, small straight bridge, bound top and back, and a silkscreened white script Gibson logo in the peghead. The mahogany top gives a slightly darker sound than spruce - its perfect for blues and ragtime. The bridge and few braces were reglued, the frets were dressed and the guitar was set up by by luthier Marty Beeson here in town. The guitar is ready for gigging, as it has been fitted with moden Waverly tuners and was drilled for an endpin jack. A NoJack endpin has been installed, but this can easily be removed to allow the re-installation of a pickup and endpin jack. The guitar is all solid and in good playing condition. Frets are good and the neck is straight. This box has a big sound - its one of the better sounding L00s to come through here in a while. Perfect for ragtime and fingerstyle playing.
