1932 Gibson L-00

Gibson L-00 1932 Beginning in the late 20s, Gibson went through a series of flat top 'types' before settling on the basic L-00 that is fairly common in the vintage market today. From about 1931 through 1933, the L-00 saw a rapid number of iterations. This particular example is from that time period, and is quite rare when compared to the standard L-00. It sports the spiffy black w/ white...

1941 Gibson L-0

1941 Gibson L-0 in very good condition. These late L-0 are interesting guitars as they bridge the gap between the L-0 and 00 of the 30s with the LG-2 of the 1940s. The top bracing is scalloped and they have big round necks, both features found on the LG-2 from the Banner era. This guitar is all original except for a new saddle and one bridge pin. We reset the neck and made a new saddle to get...

1933 Gibson/ Kalamazoo KG-11 "Zipper"

My favorite and quite a rare guitar, the "zipper" inlay, Black and white checkerboard around the soundhole is a captivating, tasty twist only done in 1932. With a smaller more squat body, it is, like the KG-14, another Kalamzoo version of the Gibson L-00. It has a welcome compactness that makes for a sensitive troubador's travel guitar. Feather-light, responsive, intimate, yet capable of playing...

The top is a tight grained Sitka spruce with a rosewood bridge and fingerboard, mahogany back and sides and...

1936 Gibson Cason J. Robison

In the 1930s, Montgomery Ward had guitars made for them with the "Carson J.Robison" name, to take advantage of the popularity of that cowboy singing star of the day. By 1936, these guitars were being made for Ward's by Gibson, with the later ones like this having the identical body contour and dimensions of Gibson fabulous L-0 and L-00 models. The main difference was straight bracing under the...

1930 Gibson L-12

AG - 00075 1930 Gibson L- 12 VG ++ Here's another wonderful Gibson anomaly. Common knowledge is that the L-12 was introduced in 1932 with Gold Hardware and fancy inlay. Here is a very early 1930 labeled L-12 with a 16'' body, small f-holes, dot inlay and nickel hardware. Very much like a 20's L-5 and yes, it sounds like one too.
