1937 Gibson L-00 3/4


Located in Portland, OR


For your consideration a 1937 Gibson L-00 3/4 size in sunburst. You don’t see these everyday. They only made 35 of these ever! Its just like a regular L-00 only smaller.

This guitar is in good condition for its age. It has had a neck reset as well as being refretted. Its Ebony nut measures to 1 9/16 inches. The neck is made out of mahogany and sports a pronounced V shape. Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. 19 frets. It’s 3/4 size so the scale length is small as well at 23 inches. Original tuners. The bridge has been replaced with a maple bridge. There is a newer bone saddle as well as newer bridge pins. Original truss rod cover. The top is bellying up a bit but is totally stable and has no loose braces. There is a crack on the back that has been cleated. The silk screen logo is still in fantastic condition.

This is a very unique guitar. It’s a tiny little thing but has a big sound. You’ll definitely be the only one in town with one of these.
