Gibson / L-1 / 1931 / Sunburst / Guitar For Sale

Gibson L-1 from 1931 in very good condtion !

It's a pretty rare guitar. L-1 guitars were only made between 1926 and 1937

The FON on the neck block dates the guitar to 1931

Light as a feather and rings like a bell. It's a very responsive guitar due to it's light construction (thin woods, slim braces, and thin finishes). Performs beautifully with light strings

Original brown finish

Playware +++ on the top but no cracks

Spruce top with simple white binding

Straight mahogany, unbound neck with RW fret board

20 frets in total - 12 frets to the body

No pickguard (sunburst L-1 guitars from 1930-31 didn't have a pickguard)

Action is good, plays comfortably up and down the neck

Had a refret and neck reset

Mahogany back (with simple white binding) and sides

Reglued RW rectangle bridge with a newer bridge plate

Probably original hard shell case with red inner lining
