Gibson / Blues King / 2012 / Sunburst / Guitar
The Gibson Blues King is a reissue of one of the most iconic blues guitars ever - the Gibson L-00. A great example of Gibson's attention to detail, from the script Gibson headstock logo and the rectangular bridge, to the tortoiseshell pickguard, this guitar really looks the part. With Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides, plus the old style narrow shouldered 00 size body, this guitar is made to play the blues, although the X bracing adds to the guitar’s versatility. The guitar has a warm, mellow tone, suited for both fingerstyle and soloing, as well as light strumming. As a 10 year old guitar it's in good, played condition, with no cracks or repairs, just some lacquer checking on the headstock. The ‘Only a Gibson is Good Enough’ banner on the headstock is a later addition, which can be easily removed, but I quite like it. The guitar comes in it’s original Gibson embossed deluxe gig bag.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
