Gibson / L00 Acacia / 2015 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
In 2015 Gibson’s Custom Shop produced a limited run of L00’s with Acacia back and sides - one of the most spectacular looking tone woods, similar in tone and appearance to Koa. The guitar bears all the hallmarks of the sought after vintage L-00’s. The compact design, deeper body, traditional scalloped X-bracing and hide glue construction exude a feel and sound that only an L-00 can. Add to that the Custom Shop touches such as Abalone snowflake fretboard inlays, an Abalone rosette and headstock logo, and a set of gold Grover open-back tuners, and the guitar has a really classy look and feel. Tonally Acacia has a bright, complex sound with plenty of mid range. Add this to the Sitka Spruce top and you have a strong, clear sound with warmth and sparkle. The playability is excellent and action is just right. It features an LR Baggs VTC pickup with volume and tone controls mounted inside the soundhole, and comes in it’s original Gibson embossed 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.
