From Gibson – 

“The Gibson Acoustic Limited Edition L-00 acoustic guitar is descended from the legendary small-bodied axe of the 1930s and '40s. Whether you think of it as a "parlour guitar" or a "blues box," the easy-playing L-00 is perfect for recording and acoustic jams. The compact mahogany body and Adirondack red spruce top deliver a focused sound that sits great in your track, while its generous lower bout serves up surprisingly strong low end. With its deliciously playable V neck profile and classic finish, you'll positively adore the Gibson Acoustic Limited Edition L-00”

Hide glue construction

The top of the Gibson Limited Edition L-00 is made from Adirondack red spruce, while the back and sides are constructed from mahogany, giving this superb instrument full, balanced expression, warm bass, and excellent projection. Selecting the right wood, and the formula to dry it out, are two of the most central procedures to Gibson's guitar-building process.

Beginning with its first catalogue in 1903, Gibson has assured its customers that every guitar would be built using woods with "the most durable, elastic, and sonorous qualities," and today's guitars from Gibson Acoustic are no different.

Gibson's reputation as a fine guitar builder dates back to the late 1800s. Handcrafted since day one by some of the most skilled luthiers around, Gibson acoustic guitars have inspired countless players around the world. When you pick up a Gibson acoustic, you know you're getting the finest tonewoods, quality hardware, and incredible attention to detail - these instruments are built to sound great and stand the test of time.

It isn’t often that Gibson builds True Vintage models in the limited edition series, and it is even more uncommon to see a small body True Vintage model. This is a chance to own the Cadillac of the small body series, the L-00 True Vintage.

Featuring many of the most popular vintage details like hot hide glue top bracing, vintage fret wire, vintage-style tuners and firestripe pickguard, this petite performer conjures up the voices of famous blues and folk players who relied on this instrument to create some of America’s most enduring music. 

This one was bought new from a major Sydney retailer in 2014. It has been played sporadically at home and looked after well. Nothing has been changed except the strings, and it has been nicely set up and plays well in all areas of the neck.

It has some minor marks & a few light scuffs here and there but nothing unpleasant. Frets are like new, truss rod works properly, original vintage tuners do their job well. Action is medium on the full feeling neck, and the sound is articulate and punchy – lots of power from a smaller body shape.

Unfortunately the Certificate Of Authenticity that usually accompanies this model is missing. The owner is currently upending his house in a possibly forlorn attempt to locate it, but we don’t hold out too much hope.

Comes in its Gibson hard shell case in good condition.
