Freshly set up in-house by our esteemed Guitar Tech, this venerable L-00 from 1937 is sounding great. In Good vintage condition with some repairs and general wear and tear consistent with an instrument of this age. There are several repaired back cracks and back/side separation. There is a repaired side crack on the treble side below the waist. The center seam on top looks cracked but is still solid. Repairs like this are par for the course on older lightly built Gibsons like this one.
L-00s from the 30s are among our most favorite vintage guitars because what matters most is how they sound and boy do they sound great.
