First Gibson flattop guitar, Robert Johnson, Nick Lucas, blues- and bluesrock guitar … when it comes to the Gibson L-1, the superlatives come thick and fast.
Here we have a beautiful 1927 Gibson L-1, which has a cool Mississippi Delta Robert Johnson Blues Vibe.
In 1926 this guitar was presented for the first time as a “flattop guitar”, after it had caused a lot of enthusiasm among guitarists many years before as an archtop guitar.
Guitarists like Nick Lucas and Robert Johnson made music history with the L-1 and it was Gibson’s number one model at the time.
This L-1 sounds fantastic… woody, dry, bluesy. The mahogany back and sides give the guitar a magical tone. The beautiful spruce top produces the most beautiful timbres you can imagine.
This guitar was completely restored a few years ago. Several cracks were glued. Care was taken to leave the guitar in its original condition with the original sound.
The guitar is very playable with a low action and a straight neck.
It comes in a not original guitar case.
