$4,900
1926 L-1. One of the very earliest flat tops and the first year of production of the L-1 model. The exact same model as Robert Johnson played. All original and original case. Obviously a departure from what Gibson normally did as it not only natural top finish but natural on the back as well. Red spruce top, birch back and sides. “The Gibson” on the head stock.

1934 Gibson Jumbo

$20,000
1934 Gibson Jumbo. Sounds incredible. The jumbo model was Gibson's very first dreadnought, 16 inch flat top. They created it to compete with Martin's dreadnoughts. The Gibson dreadnought body had upper bouts that were more rounded than Martin’s, giving rise to the distinguishing terms that are still used today: “round-shouldered” or “slope-shouldered” for Gibsons and “square-shouldered” for...

1956 Gibson J-45

1956 Gibson J-45 just in with all the right mojo and tone. The J-45 model is one of my top five favorite guitar models. In my experience when most folks talk or think about a "Gibson flat top" they're referring to a J-45. They're truly quintessential Gibson and produce the tone that defined much of music. These are great for application to blues, Americana, folk, country, and rock music. This...

An all original 1953 Southern Jumbo. Great scalloped bracing under the high grade spruce top. No changed parts on this instrument and the finish is original.
