Oh, you mean the "L2 in name only." RW back & sides, otherwise pretty much the same as an L1 (Robert Johnson, pround endorser--Im sure they asked first).

The L-2 Tribute brings the vibe of the old Gibson L-Series guitars from the 1920’s to the 21st century. These small body acoustics were the catalyst for the original American Blues, a sound that would forever change the direction of popular music. This very rare and collectable model combines the body of the famous L-1 blues guitar from 1926 with the upgraded details and materials of a rare 1929 L-2 model.

Gibson Montana has included vintage-correct detailing like a dovetail neck joint, hide glue construction, traditionally scalloped X bracing, and a traditional rosewood rectangle bridge with an open-slot bone saddle for an authentic experience with a 1920’s guitar. An Adirondack red spruce top delivers a blend of warmth and presence that other tops just don’t come close to, and the mahogany neck has a period-correct “V” profile that is perfect for playin’ the blues!


Antique Natural Nitro Finish
Adirondack Red Spruce Top
Rosewood Back and Sides
Traditional "V" Shape Mahogany Neck
Rosewood Fingerboard
Traditionally Scalloped X-Bracing Bonded with Hide Glue
12" Fretboard Radius
25" Scale Length
1.725" Nut Width
Single Ring Rosette
Multi-Ply Top and Back Binding
Vintage Nickel Open Back Tuners
Traditional Rosewood Rectangle Bridge with Open Slot Bone Saddle
Bone Nut


that's what the music zoo has
