1928 Gibson L 1

Recommended Posts

A beautiful thing, though with that bridge shape and unbound fingerboard, it's a replica of a 1929 model.

Here's my 1928 L-1, for comparison:

Here's a straight on shot (with some reflection) that allows for a comparison of the body shapes:

JT, it may just be the angle of the photos, but it looks like the upper bout of the vintage guitar has "softer" (more rounded) shoulder. Both guitars are nice, but I'd take your vintage one in a heartbeat. It looks to be in spectacular condition.

I agree, Nick: slight differences in shape. The upper bout on the modern guitar flattens out in the heel area whereas in the original the curve continues.

 

It is a lovely playing and sounding guitar.
