1931 Gibson L1

I think this has to be the nicest small bodied Gibson we have had through the shop. It weighs almost nothing and has a superb strong voice for an L size guitar. Its all original with the exception of an added pick guard and by the plastic i would say its pre 1950’s. neck joins the body at the 12th fret and as we have just had the neck re set it plays wonderfully up and down the neck. The Script stencil Gibson logo has almost disappeared but by the ‘Made in USA” stamp on the back of the headstock we know it was an export guitar so has probably been in the UK all its life. The neck profile is a almost a modern comfortable C shape with no hint of the big V necks that were to come and still with its tiny original frets. The original tuners survive also and work well. The finish is an amazingly thin original sunburst finish to the front and a deep mahogany to the back. Comes with its original card case.
