Gibson / L-2 / 1924 / Natural / Guitar
Built nearly 100 years ago, this L-2 has aged really well and remains a beautiful and really playable guitar. A small archtop with round soundhole, carved Birch and Spruce body and a short scale neck, this Gibson L-2 has a punchy sound, with a warm dryness though the midrange, and a compact and articulate low end. It's a fun guitar to play 1920's era raggy-jazzy tunes on, and loves the blues - it cuts through any mix. Initially built between 1902 - 1907, the L-2 was then discontinued. It was brought back with these specifications only between 1924 - 1926, making this a very rare guitar indeed. It’s like playing a piece of history, yet it feels strong enough to gig, has a very comfortable feeling V profile neck, and easy playing action. To add to it’s desirability, it even comes in it’s original hard case.
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.
