Used 2014 Gibson L-00 True Vintage Limited Edition Acoustic Guitar serial number 12734068.
This guitar is in excellent condition showing little playing time.
“An extremely rare offering from Gibson for lovers of blues and folk.”
“The Gibson L-00 True Vintage Limited Edition acoustic guitar gives you the sound that inspired some of the most legendary bluesmen ever to pick up a guitar. The small-body style L-00 True Vintage gives you the perfect balance between smooth playability, vintage vibe, and classic tone. This instrument is a reproduction of Gibson's original 1930's model.
Like all the handcrafted guitars built in Gibson's Bozeman, MT facility, the L-00 True Vintage Limited Edition is made to be played for years and sound even better over time. This special guitar boasts a solid Red spruce top with vintage-cut braces, premium mahogany back and sides, and a top-quality mahogany neck (Gibson states “with a distinctive 1930's-style wide "V" shape”), although it’s somewhat subjective, we at Imperial feel that the neck is actually more rounded than V shaped. Vintage "Relic" three-in-line plate tuners, a 1930's-style open slotted bridge, and a Custom Shop VOS lacquer finish complete this beautiful small-body guitar.”
Great guitar to play or collect!

*Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.
