2020 Historic Acoustic Lineup

Recommended Posts

An 18 wheeler  stacked full of TP  crashed and burned on the hi way enroute to our city Monday night. 

You can't make this stuff up.

The small body lovers are feeling a bit short changed - so far a LG2 Banner RI but with a skinny nut and a L-00 Deluxe in Rosewood...

What about a reissue of the reissue L-00 Legend, Gibson?😒

Or an (exact) reissue of a 32 in Tux!

Or an (exact) reissue of a black Nick Lucas?

And a banner LG2 with a baseball neck!

Or just a plain old 37 L-00 in black with a firestripe guard?

Or the 12 fret L-00?

etc, etc.

I would love a L2 in Argentine Grey, 12 fret , Gold sparkle binding and Rosette as Legend/ Historic CS reissue.

I think i want 3.  The 42 Banner SJ, The 34 Jumbo Reissue, and the LG.  Then I'd want a fixed bridge HB.  Then I could rest.

We truly are in Dreamland now!

How will you get them to make that when they can't seem to do the famous 30s plain black with firestripe L-00?

Or the famous 30s Tux L-00s? 14 and 12 fret!

Instead they come up with a modern spec Blues King in black with a brown guard, modern neck and nut size....when did Gibson ever make a 30s L-00 like that? They really should be running these designs past Mark Agnesi, instead of the marketing department.

Wow never heard or seen a Reissue one. But in the 90's they overbuilt them anyway, these L-2s are really light weight.

It's always good to have a dream, I played one of these L-2s and I fell in love with it. The owner, a smart guy, didn't sell.

This is what I got a 1933 L-1 with elevated fingerboard. A great sounding fingerpicking guitar and great for slide as well

Such a beauty-  a demure sunburst, wearing a unique and authentic example of a firestripe guard, the likes of which can't be found  today. You torture those of us who love the little old Gibson blues boxes. Can't you favor us with a short video clip? Even 25 seconds? I dare you!

I would love to do a short clip, but it's in look down. I brought it to my luthier for a fret leveling and due to corona lockdown I can't get to it and one of my Tele's as well. Looks like another month wait till I get both back to me. This is one of the reason's, one can never have enough guitars 😉

Thanks, lots of people told me elevated fingerboard flattops don't sound good. I can't agree with that, it's a great sounding instrument.
