Gibson / L-37 / 1938 / Sunburst Finish / Guitar For Sale
The Gibson L-37 model was introduced in 1935, w/a 14 3/4″ body, carved spruce soundboard, solid flat maple back, and red mahogany finish. By 1937 the color was changed to a chocolate brown, w/a distinctive lateral sunburst on the sides, a rare variant seen only on a few Depression era Gibson instruments. A short lived model, the L-37 was discontinued altogether by 1941, just months after this instrument rolled off the line in Kalamazoo. This example would have to be on any short list of the finest surviving examples of the model. With 100% original hardware and finish, this guitar has survived in super clean condition w/out cracks. Even the typical finish checking one expects on a 70 year old instrument is very minor. Original hardware includes the contoured tortoise pickguard, nickel trapeze tailpiece, three-on-a-plate open back tuners, adjustable truss rod, adjustable compensated Brazilian rosewood bridge. The fingerboard has smooth low action over fine original fretwork. Tipping the scales at a scant 4lb., the guitar has a brilliant clear voice, w/excellent projection and reverb. Overall she’s better than excellent & comes in a decent soft-shell case.
