About Gibson L-00

The Gibson L-00 is a small body orchestral style guitar that was introduced way back in 1932. To this day the L-00 still represents the heritage, and sound of vintage acoustics.

With traditional hand-scalloped x-bracing, classic tone woods, and nitrocellulose finishes, the L-00 is a real modern vintage instrument. With the nitrocellulose finish these guitars will age just like a vintage guitar, but are built with the best modern techniques to ensure a consistent quality that lasts.
