Originally developed in the 1930’s, the Gibson L-00 took the guitar world by storm - a straightforward and reliable flattop acoustic guitar that faithfully served generations of musicians for decades. The new 2019 Gibson L-00 Standard Acoustic Electric Guitar fully captures the vibrant heritage of those exemplary early instruments and is updated with all of the important modern touches for today’s guitarist.
The 2019 Gibson L-00 Standard is a beautiful guitar that’s an absolute joy to play. Gibson’s exquisite craftsmanship and all of their detailed appointments are ready and waiting, including a mother-of-pearl dot fingerboard inlay, traditional hand-scalloped X-Bracing, and a vintage Sunburst finish defined by its buttery smooth gradient. If you’re looking for an instrument that is a bit more compact than say . . . a standard Dreadnought, than the L-00 and its comfortable body shape is the model for you. It’s easy to transport and ready to tackle a variety of venues and situations, especially when space is at a premium. The solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany sides and back provide a perfect tonal balance and sonic projection that is simply not found in comparable small body guitars – the L-00’s smooth, confident sound is your reward!
The 2019 Gibson L-00 is also outfitted with a versatile LR Baggs VTC pickup system that highlights the instrument’s authentic sound when plugged into an acoustic amplifier or PA system. Power up your sound - it’s easy, just plug in and you’re ready to go!
