1991 Gibson L-00 Reissue. Great vintage style guitar at a cheap price as the guitar has a slight off center seam crack repair. Also has a vintage period correct set of Waverly strip tuners to make the guitar more vintage correct.The guitar also has a built-in pickup that looks factory original and is wired directly to an end-pin jack. The guitar also comes with a non-original hardshell case.

1991 Gibson L-00 vintage reissue acoustic guitar with a stunning ebony finish and exquisite tone. This first year reissue of the L-00 predates the renaming of this model as the "Blues King," and with scalloped X braced construction and a fairly thin and resonant spruce top, the L-00 lends itself to a variety of musical styles. With its narrow waist and shoulders, the L-00 produces a focused, resonant, and remarkably full sound, and the low end has notable boom and kick without overshadowing the treble frequencies. The sound holds together well when strummed hard, yet also responds well to more delicate fingerpicking. This L-00 is simply a ton of fun to play and an excellent choice for stage and studio work.

The neck has a soft V profile that is moderately slender, with gently sloping shoulders and consistent depth as you move into the higher registers of the fretboard. The bound rosewood fretboard retains the original wide/flat Gibson fretwire, and these frets have their full factory height. The crowns are well rounded and the frets show virtually no wear. At the nut, the neck measures a full 1 3/4" in width, and the silkscreen Gibson unsafe logo is a nice vintage spec aesthetic touch.

On the body, the rosewood bridge base sits flush with the top on all edges and there is plenty of saddle height for future adjustment if desired. The spruce top sits quite flat, with only very minimal and normal deflection behind the bridge. The transparent firestripe pickguard looks positively "right". All of the braces are solid and the original white Gibson label can be seen through the soundhole. The guitar is also fitted with an internal passive piezo pickup for greater versatility in live situations where more volume is desired.

Cosmetically, this is a clean and well cared for instrument, with a stunning and sleek original nitro lacquer ebony finish. The nitro has started to settle in to the grain of the spruce top over the past 25 years, and there is one slender and repaired crack along the center seam where the two matched pieces of spruce on the top meet. Less a true "crack" and more a seam separation central to the lower bout which was cleanly repaired, the slight splitting of the lacquer in this area is essentially only aesthetic.

A non-original hardshell case is included.
