Gibson / L Jr / 1919 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
Only produced between 1919 - 1925, this as a very desirable first year of issue L Jr. The most noticeable difference between this and later examples is ‘The Gibson’ headstock logo - later versions had no logo at all. Built just after the first World War, over 100 years ago, this L Jr has aged 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. Jack White can often be seen playing one of these old Gibson Jr’s . It has a warm, thumpy sort of tone, that can play a number of different roles from country-blues to strumming to fingerpicked sweetness to raspy gypsy-jazz lead work. It's a surprisingly versatile guitar. The feel of the guitar is just great, really playable. It has two tightly repaired top cracks, a filled back centre seam, and has been oversprayed. Not only is this an important piece of Gibson history, it’s also a super cool guitar. It comes in a non 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.
