Gibson / L3 Cremona Burst / 1920 / Guitar For Sale

The L3 was Gibson's fanciest small-body guitar at the time this instrument was built, and featured a beautiful rubbed Cremona sunburst, herringbone and celluloid rosette and intricate headstock inlay. With a body width of 13.7”, this L3 is significantly smaller than Gibson's 16 inch L4 and L5 models, and has a string balance that favours mids and upper mids over the lower frequencies that the larger guitars push out. This means it sounds at its best with fingerstyle techniques. This L3 has survived its 102 years mostly well, but obviously has some scars and stories to tell. For example, it has lost its pickguard and had a pickup system installed of which now only three filled holes in the side are left. The tuning machines have been replaced and while these models typically have a thick neck, the neck on this L3 has been shaved down so it's now a little bit thinner. So even though this has been more of a 'player' instead of a collectors item, it is still in good condition and comes in a hardshell case.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
