1938 Gibson L00 Guitar
(Factory Order No. none) Excellent playing condition with some repairs and playing wear. I'm calling this a 1938 based on the size of the sunburst, the bound back, the wider nut and the earlier fire stipe style pickguard, but it could be as early as 1937 or as late as 1941. The factory order number is faintly legible on the neck block but cannot be read. Nice guitar with all original finish showing some playing wear and a reglued bridge. Has a mahogany back and sides and a x-braced spruce top with sunburst finish, 14 fret body, firestripe guard that follows the body contour, original ebony 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 bridge and few braces were reglued and the guitar was set up by by luthier Jerry Ray here in town. It shows some playing wear on the fretboard and back of the neck, and a bunch of small nicks and dings on the body, but no significant repairs evident. The guitar is all solid and in good structural condition now. The tuners are the original 3 on a plate Klusons with the original white buttons. They work very well. Frets are good and the neck is straight. Its sounds much larger than a small body guitar. Perfect for ragtime and fingerstyle playing. It's in excellent playing condition - all it needs is your fingers on the strings! Comes with a newer hardshell case.
