1933 Gibson L-0 Vintage Acoustic Guitar

Here is a beautiful 1933 Gibson L-0 based on the records on the guitarhq website. It does appear to have features consistent with the L-0. These old models are difficult to differentiate.

I got it from the grandson of the original owner. It has been stored for over 30 years with no strings which means the top is in perfect shape with no bowing or sinking. The neck is perfectly straight with no bow to it. This thing is a collectors and players dream. It’s insanely clean all over with one small crack on the back that was cleated properly many years ago. Also 3 holes where a trapeze tailpiece once was on the end. Which is what kind of makes me think it was an L-1 originally. Unfortunately the grandsons owner never saw it played and only knew of it as the condition that it was in. So maybe it was on first or was added after? I have no way to say for sure.

What I do know is that this is the most beautiful 1933 Gibson acoustic that you are likely to find and in absolutely gorgeous condition. Some checking on the body but not much at all. Great grain in the wood. Low action that can easily go lower as the bridge saddle had a ton of room for adjustment. Slight V shaped neck.

If you have been looking for a nice one of these, this is the one. I’ve had a handful of these over the years and this is the first one that has truly blown my mind.

If the person I purchased it from finds the original receipt for the guitar purchased in 1935 I will send it to you when I received it. He was unable to find it in his records at this time but swears he has it somewhere. Would be cool to keep with it.

Anyway, good luck and hope the new owner loves it as much as I have.
